    Oceaán - "Grip"

    Oceaán impressed with his debut EP, but he's taken things to the next level with "Grip." Originally from Manchester, the electronic whiz kid has taken all the right cues from countrymen James Blake and Jamie xx in creating a slow burner of a song, inserting ear-catching snippets and samples to draw in the listener before bringing it on home with a big, bold, beautiful synth line.

    Oceaán accompanied "Grip" with a memo to his fans: "This is the beginning of more new music, and I can't wait for you all to hear what's to come."

    We, too, cannot wait.—Graham
