Hyde – Ox Hill


Melbourne’s Jim Sellar is ‘Hyde‘ – the producer behind this monumental sculpture of mangled beats. “Ox Hill” is the title track from his upcoming EP due November 20 on Nice Music.

“Ox Hill” is truly undefinable: right from the second it begins there is only a fleeting moment of sampled crowd-noises before a meteoric bass kick lands and creates the scene for the brutally dark and experimental soundscape that will unfold. There are moments where a guitar sample arises that seems lifted from a Turkish record or the tortured synth drones of a Wendy Carlos soundtrack appear – but there are no points of reference within this song that can pinpoint its own style or genre, instead they prove how amorphous and ambitious this incredible song is.
