Making her debut appearance on the Detroit based label Moteur Ville Musique this summer, Hong Kong based artist Ocean Lam delivers the standout Auditory Touch featuring remixes from Eduardo De La Calle, Joal and label affiliate Jay Tripwire.
“Auditory Touch was inspired by many Detroit artists, and I never expected it would land on one of my favourite Detroit labels! Thanks to Moteur Ville Musique for giving me this opportunity, as well as Typhoon8 Records (the track was produced in T8R studio in Hong Kong). The remixes come from some of my favourite artists who I’ve been following for a very long time, so it’s like another dream come true! I am really excited for this release and hopefully Auditory Touch can bring joy, positive vibes, and love to everyone whilst the world’s reset button is on!”– Ocean Lam
Auditory Touch kick-starts the EP with tribal pads and an addictive beat that resounds with force. Ocean demonstrates her dance-floor knowledge as the track unravels into a peak time number, generous in groove and atmosphere. Adding his signature stamp and first up on remix duty is Canadian born Jay Tripwire, with a typically minimal and intricate affair. For almost two decades Eduardo De La Calle has been producing music under a variety of aliases. The Madrid based artist steers his remix into big room territory, with a stomping beat and dizzying synths. Portuguese born and Berlin based Joal takes the track in a new direction with a funky acid cut where space like bloops merge with a deep baseline.
At the forefront of the Hong Kong nightlife, Ocean has been working tirelessly for over a decade to expose the music and artists in the local scene. Holding residencies at famed Hong Kong clubs oma and Social Room, Ocean also acts as the Music Director at Social Room hosting a range of underground talent. Founded in 2014, Ocean started her Hypnotic parties as a way of supporting international artists alongside local names. As a DJ Ocean has played alongside industry heavyweights including; Sven Vath, Jimpster, Axel Boman, Luke Hess and Sammy Dee among others, whilst playing at a number of festivals and in 2019 representing Hong Kong for Boiler Room at Shi Fu Miz festival.
