Oliverse (real name Ryan Oliphant) returns with his Outerworld EP, out now via Disciple Records.
Consisting of five bass-centric tunes, Outerworld is a phenomenal addition to this young talent's growing discography. Outerworld kicks off with "My Vibe," a quick-building and colorful track that's a perfect introduction to the EP. The energy stays high on the next tune, "Parachute," which includes a soft vocal laid atop tremendous chords. Things get quite a bit heavier on "Say Nothing," as Oliphant effortlessly meshes his wobbly sound with popular dubstep tropes we frequently hear in new releases. "Unspoken" gives listeners a melodic break, strung together Elle Exxe's sultry vocals and bright, flourishing synths. The EP ends with the namesake track, "Outerworld," which serves as a cinematic outro.
Oliphant is rapidly making a name for himself in the bass music scene. The U.K.-based producer has had no trouble pioneering an original sound, stepping away from typical dubstep and impressing fans with tunes like "Something Good" and "Get High." He's also crafted huge remixes for a handful of well-known artists such as Tchami, Modestep, Emalkay, and Dodge & Fuski. Oliphant has seen support from some of the biggest names in the game as well, including Skrillex, Excision, and Getter.
