I recently found one of my old mp3 players and have been going through the music again, I’ve never forgot about OCDJ but have slowed down on looking for new releases and tours. Today I decided to make a post of some of his music and as I was searching for videos to post I came across information on his first and last album, Hold Your Breath, on Kickstarter.
“ocdj has been dying a slow death. Radio stopped in 2006, performances stopped in 2008, all appearances trickled out by 2011. Three albums will go unreleased due to hard-drive crashes, mental crashes, and sunken ships. Everything that once defined ocdj is now gone: radios, computers, masks, alcohol, records, amplifiers, hot dogs, cities, boats, high fructose corn syrup. Hurricane Irene buried the last of what once was ocdj under water. All that is left is a man, a boy, a cat, with no name and no possessions. One last ocdj album still exists, though, conceptualized on scraps of paper and floating precariously in the mind and memory of the one who survived those crashes.”
I was glad to see he had already reached his goal and hopefully we can be expecting it to be released sometime soon. until then here are videos to help ease the wait.

If this is where bass music is going, i’m glad to be along for the ride. Martyn’s new album Ghost People, out on LA-based Brainfeeder Records, is a step back (in a way) to the more heartfelt garage.
All the tunes still pack a punch but are still easy to listen to in their entirety. Just a damn good album to jam. period.
Surreal Estate is a collection of tribal-influenced spacey dance grooves, progressive footwork, modern electro funk, and UK-centric dubstep rhythms, composed by an anticipated cast of North American producers, carefully selected and mixed by mainstay west coast selector Ana Sia.
Exploring the atmospheric and ethereal, yet bass-heavy, funky and playfully musical, the Surreal DJ mix shows Ana Sia’s passion for music that works as well for the dance floor as it does the intimate listen.
This exclusive collection contains bleeding-edge tracks from some of the finest production minds from both American coasts such as Sepalcure, Starkey, XI, Distal, Ghosts On Tape and DJG, as well as Ana Sia’s crew taking over the western front with artists like Eprom, NastyNasty, Salva, B. Bravo, Kuru & UFO! and more.
