BANDS TO WATCH: Ocean

Posted By on Tue, May 24, 2011 at 1:24 PM

Day four in our countdown to VOLUME — just two days away!

Today's video features Ocean, Dan Ocean, Dan Cuccia — whatever you want to call him, he seems to respond. Ocean's was a square peg in our Bands to Watch deliberations from the time he was first mentioned. He's a DJ, but not quite how you'd think. He pairs up with rappers, but he's not really hip-hop. And — before last Friday — he'd never performed live. The local beatmaker plays in the dark arts, combining the bass-iest and dingiest elements of witch house with dragging pop samples. It's dark, but somehow totally dance-able. Read our profile of the man here — and check out the video on Ocean below. 

Two days from today — on Thursday, May 26 — we'll host Volume: The Inlander's Local Music Extravaganza, featuring our five Bands to Watch, which you can read about in this week's Local Music Issue: Horse Thieves, Silver Treason, Whiskey Dick Mountain, Ocean and K. Clifton. The show is FREE. It's all-ages. It will be awesome.
