Oscuro is an enigmatic figure. Based in Cambridge, UK, his music brings the classic "golden era" future garage sound into the present day. His latest track "From The Heart" is the perfect demonstration of this, marrying futuristic technicality with the classic piano melodies of yesteryear.
Opening with a slow pad, the track is immediately dark. There is, however, no sense of threat within that darkness; the swelling soundscape is introspective and delicate. The drums are introduced quickly, gentle and intricately detailed as they drive the bassline forwards. Piano chords shine through the second half of the drop, bringing with them an emotional weight that lingers as the drums give way to the break.
