Ovid returns to Cork label Flood this month with the ‘Stone Coaster’ EP.
Following his 2020 debut on the label, ‘Dustbringer’, the Washington DC-based producer ramps up the drama with five percussive club workouts; lush melodies and swooping sonic details weave their way through Ovid’s dynamic drums throughout. The EP features a collaboration between Ovid and Flood co-founders Doubt and Tension, while Tokyo’s Akito delivers a hefty remix of ‘Descent’.
Below, you can hear ‘Descent’ in its bracing original form, with thunderous drums set against soft, otherworldly keys. It’s pure boss-fight material.
‘Stone Coaster’ will be released on 7th January. Pre-order it here.
