Elliott Mo wanted "Oceans" to capture the often fast-paced flow of life and how it can change at a moment. Considering the upbeat nature of the track and the number of transitions we're acquainted with, he certainly hit the nail on the head with this one.
As a producer myself, it was predominantly the intricate nature of the production that I found alluring. The ethnic instrumentation paired with the chromatic drums is quite reminiscent of recent Bonobo works, and something which also can't escape mention is the melodious vocal samples by virtue of their catchiness.
I wanted to create an electronica track for the treadmill of life, during both my days and nights.
