Oliver Coates

“Memorial To Hitchens”

[Ghost Culture Remix]


by trevor elkin

Continuing the foray into new musical territory, we are thrilled to present a brand new mix of a track from another of 2016’s finest albums: ‘Upstepping’ by composer, cellist and producer Oliver Coates. Ghost Culture, aka James Greenwood, takes apart the more apprehensive mood of the ambient track, ‘Memorial To Hitchens’, slicing and dicing its components into individual units of raw emotion.  These are then brigaded into a more uplifting array of cerebral splashes, clicks and glitches which burst through the fabric of the day like dripping sunlight.

Oliver Coates will be coming to a performance space near you in October (see the full list of dates below) and, after the heart-stopping incandescence of his show at Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelic Music this weekend, we sincerely advise you don’t let the opportunity pass you by. Stream the new track below right now.

‘Upstepping’ is out now, via PRAH Recordings
