Among many things, this song and video touch upon the subject of PTSD.

Mitch Stratten’s 5 minute film OCP is the culmination of two years of exacting work and Stratten’s most ambitious project yet. Despite its surreal narrative, the visual language of OCP feels strangely familiar, and viewers will recognise the influence and techniques of cinema and film-making. Stratten’s accompanying soundtrack is integral to the piece and informs the viewers response. “I want people to experience this in a really immersive way,” says Stratten, “ideally wearing headphones with high volume.”
The boundary-blurring imagery of OCP seamlessly combines physical performance, large-scale mechanical engineering and computer technology. Stratten: “OCP is a unification of the physical and psychological in a very literal way, exposing concerns in our perception of belief.”

From Manchester producers Synkro & Indigo comes Akkord‘s new single “Folded Edge”.
Taken from the self-titled debut album • Released on Houndstooth Records.

Eventually revealed as a collaboration between experienced Mancunian bass producers Synkro and Indigo, ‘Akkord’ blurs the lines between junglist revivalism, smoky ambience, and suctioned dub, with a consistently engaging pulse linking the styles. Carefully arranged and achieving maximum impact on a proper soundsystem, Akkord have turned in an ominous and daring debut LP.”
