Owsey, pronounced “O-zee” has a fantastic sound that is only growing on me with each new tune. This track, “Cya!” is unique because it has a drum and bass instrumental rhythm, yet is very peaceful at the same time. The blends of sounds create a wonderful composition that let your mind escape any current worries. Whether its the slight vocals or the uplifting flute, each is layered perfectly. When I first heard “Cya!” it actually reminded me of the liquid funk genre, and artists such as Netskey and London Elektricity. Though some drum and bass has fallen out of flavor by becoming too mainstream, Owsey has got a great thing going. What’s different with him is the soothing atmosphere his sounds portray. From Northern Island, Owsey’s entire persona is friendly and welcoming and I’m looking forward to his upcoming 2012 work. Be sure to check out his Facebook and Soundcloud for more free tracks. Keep up the great work Owsey!
