Now the MFRR crew are teaming up with a fellow Toronto producer for the next EP release due to drop in mid February. Arthur Oskan has been part of the city’s electronic music landscape since the Nineties, forging a place for himself with his evolving signature sound, a hybrid of synth-pop, Detroit techno and industrial rock. Releases on celebrated labels such as Thoughless music, Trapez and Ghostly International have brought him considerable attention whilst bookings at high profile festival in North America and Europe have brought his own out of the studio, direct to the masses. The ‘Chromantic EP’ is Oskan’s debut release for the My Favorite Robot Records and features three superb slice of electronic music that veer away from genre classification. The release opens with the sublime ‘Omegaman’ a track that features hypnotic top lines, emotive synth melodies and a heavily vocoded vocal that all join up to make for a winning combination. Second track ‘Maximillian’ journeys into deep old school techno territory with argeppiated basslines and rolling drum programming ruling the day. Finally we have the epic ‘Adrift’ that spreads its uplifting and hypnotic electronic flavours over eleven and a half blissfull minutes. The ‘Chromantic EP’ is an accomplished and engaging EP from a producer of considerable talent who will hopefully be contributing further to My Favorite Robot Records, enjoy.
