After his celebrated signing to Monstercat this month, melodic house phenom OCULA returned to the label today with his stunning new single, “Renaissance” featuring singer-songwriter Luke Coulson.
Exploring moodier tones with his Moog Sub Phatty, OCULA embraces atmospheric pads beneath Coulson’s weightless vocals, achieving a cinematic edge. As he continues on his upward trajectory in the melodic house lane, the track invigorates a newfound style from OCULA that fans can look forward to hearing more of on the label.
OCULA shares, “‘Renaissance’ is a special one for me because I slightly doubted my ability to write powerful, moodier songs that reflect the times where I find myself in a negative headspace, but want to transcribe those feelings into music, and I feel “Renaissance” captures that perfectly.”
Since 2019, OCULA has become a household name with breakout releases on Anjunabeats and mau5trap, as well as remixes for the likes of Armin van Buuren and Le Youth.
His musicianship has set him apart with his uplifting yet poignant stylings, quickly becoming one of Lane 8’s biggest successes on This Never Happened. Launching “Renaissance” into the live space, he’ll set out on his debut North American tour this fall, with stops at Bar Standard in Denver, Audio in San Francisco, Confessions in Tulum, and more.
