The Oscillation is one of the many aliases of Demian Castellanos, a multi instrumentalist tour de force who emerged from the London underground in 2006. He has released 4 previous LPs as well a handful of singes and EPs. Castellanos aims to constantly push the boundaries and drags the divisive term psychedelic rock to the edge and back, incorporating numerous other styles into his productions.
Following on from 2016 LP Monographic released on Hands In The Dark and 2017 single ‘Evil In The Tree’ released on Wrong Way Records, The Oscillation released fifth album, U.E.F., recently on Fuzz Club Records. The title track has recently had an ethereal video created by Arban Ornelas Severin (vimeo.com/insomniactheatre), of which BSM is delighted to provide you with the first viewing.
The 22 minute track sounds like something that belongs on Oxygene, a product that Jean Michel Jarre would be proud of which makes it all the more special that its come from one of our favourite psychedelic artists. It is different from what we have encountered from them before, taking a distinct electronic turn, but executed so perfectly its hard not to lose yourself in its rhythms.
