British DJ and producer Brad Littler aka OCULA has quite rapidly become one of the premiere names in the melodic house scene. After a rapid rise to prominence with back-to-back releases on deadmau5’s epochal label mau5trap, the Staffordshire, UK native has quickly made a mark with his blend of moving, organic melodic house - his intimately addictive sound quickly became a mainstay at Lane 8’s imprint This Never Happened. Official remixes for Gabriel and Dresden, Le Youth and Lane 8 himself are amongst the many staples of OCULA’s expansive discography, which includes showcases on iconic labels Armada, Anjunabeats and Spinnin’ Deep.
2022 sees the arrival of OCULA’s debut album, ‘Crossroad’. Based on the times of doubt and difficulty that new artists face in the industry, OCULA looks to pay homage to those moments where it would have been easier to give up; but continued on. Bringing in the creativity of a handful of his favourite lyricists, such as Phillip Larue on ‘Green Willow’, MAVICA for ‘No Borders’, and Richard Walters on ‘Only You’, the freshman album creates a stunning sonic journey of emotion that displays the evolution of OCULA’s sound over recent years.
