premiere: Ouri – Escape
Montreal producer, multi-instrumentalist, and DJ Ouri shares the first single from her entrancing new EP We share our blood, coming next month on Ghostly International in the States & Make It Rain Records in Canada. You may be familiar with Ouri’s work from her stellar collaborations with young Montreal luminaries Forever, Mind Bath, Munya, et al., or from last year’s beautifully lush Superficial, but haunting new late-night anthem “Escape” finds the artist’s intoxicating production swirling around her own voice for the first time, to stunning/soothing effect. Ouri tells us about her process for the new record, every aspect of which she created on her own:
“As I continue to create music, I want the whole experience to be even more raw. No one else is included for this one; from writing to mastering, the process is direct from me to the listener.
I don’t know if it’s motivated by a weird obsession or a true bond but it is shaped into a naive and empowering mantra about endless connections.”
Listen to “Escape” below, with visual accompaniment by Maiko Rodrig + Matthieu Vanier. We share our blood is out September 28th.
