France has a vibrant electronic scene, known for its pioneering artists that have breathed fresh life into techno, electro, and house. That said, hearing of softer, more melodic sounds rising out of the country is rarer, and often over-looked.
Enter Ovend, a promising new talent who’s already been tapped by Tale Of Us for a collaboration as of his third release. His abilities in track production speak for themselves, as do his influences in classic trance and contemporary techno, with each of his tracks thus far leading the listener on an immersive journey.
His latest “Nuits Fauves” lands once more on Afterlife, this time on the latest Realm Of Consciousness compilation. It’s hauntingly captivating, caressing the listener with contrasting elements of stark melodies and warm instrumentation. A trancey breakdown ties the piece together, bearing resemblance to earlier days of the genre while promoting a soaring sentiment before the track reassembles itself for a nuanced second half.
