Over the last 2 years, despite the ongoing lockdown situations and lack of much festival or live action until this summer, we have seen such an enormous growth in popularity for underground dance music, especially the sounds that are expanding and growing naturally out of the UK to a now global audience. Having watched from the side, it’s safe to say that the UKG sound has become one of the most prominent areas of dance music within the full spectrum, with a number of the UK’s finest really pushing the boat out with their fabulous run of original creations.
One of the names that has truly risen to the roof of the pile in that time is Oppidan, a producer whose sound continues to pick up steam and smoke as it rolls into a different town each weekend, with Oppidan spearheading the movement through her high levels of consistency. She has once again pushed for the international following as she makes her way over to LA, linking up once again with AC Slater’s Night Bass project, now undoubtedly one of the world’s most recognised and highly acclaimed underground dance music labels. As mentioned above, this isn’t Oppidan’s first dip across the pond, having launched EP’s and releases last year and really pushing her stock up in the process.
This latest single goes by the name ‘Sent It’ and represents a wicked transition in Oppidan’s style over the last few months especially, giving her the opportunity to explore the more subtle side of UKG. The arrangement focuses on intricate melodic plucks and spacey backdrops, all of course glued together with some seriously tidy organ work and enticing chord progressions, marrying together a wicked back of new and old school elements into a fabulous cocktail of dancefloor energy. It’s another wicked addition to the catalogues of both Oppidan and the Night Bass team, giving us another summer belter to enjoy!
