Rhythm Guide: Otik – Crystal Clear / Rainbow Rhythm
In the limelight for this week’s Rhythm Guide we have Otik’s !K7 Records debut Crystal Clear / Rainbow Rhythm.
Hailing from Bristol and based in London, Ashley Thomas routinely passes the storied music heritage of both cities through his own singular, prismatic filter. As Otik he produces brilliant and complex hues, forming compositions from weightless neon-tinged trails, richly layered melodic webs and inky, subaqueous bass lines.
The prolific artist recently created his own imprint, Solar Body, to accommodate the expanse and volume of his unfettered productions; now with his !K7 Record debut, Otik deepens his sonic explorations for the label he credits as a crucial discovery portal.
