Wake Up! records is proud to announce Rise and Fall, the debut EP by Ian Oakley, a new talent from Toronto. Skewing acid-tinged house with languid, lopsided grooves,Rise and Fall weaves a mix of dubbed-out elements into a unique, intuitive whole. 'Thumbs' evokes a liminal space perfectly suited for late night cruises and hypnotized foors. 'Rise and Fall' stays true to its name, a slippery bassline ebbing and fowing against a elegantly mellow beat. On the B-side, 'Bug Jam' indulges Oakley's electro side, while label co-owner Benjamin Brunn remixes 'Rise and Fall,' reimagining the original as a spacious, kosmiche slow burner. Rise and Fall is a confdent debut, as potent in headphones as on the decks and a welcome edition to the growing Wake Up! catalogue.
