INFLUENCED BY STS9, TYCHO, RJD2, DJ SHADOW, UMPHREY'S MCGEE, BOARDS OF CANADA, THE METERS, BONOBO, EMANCIPATOR, AND THE NEW ORLEANS FUN MUSIC SCENE. OCEAN DISCO MELDS TOGETHER THESE INFLUENCES USING DANCE, FUNK AND HIP HOP BEATS TO CREATE A TRULY UNIQUE MUSICAL ATMOSPHERE. USING A COMBINATION OF ELECTRIFIED INSTRUMENTS, DIGITAL SAMPLES, AND ANALOGUE SYNTHESIZERS. THE BAND STRIVES TO CREATE AN INTERACTIVE MUSICAL ODYSSEY AT THEIR LIVE SHOWS. CAPTURING THE FULL SPECTRUM OF EMOTION THEIR MUSIC SEEMS TO CONTINUALLY EVOLVE WITHIN ITSELF FROM ONE MOMENT TO THE NEXT. HEAVILY IMPROVISED LIVE SETS IS WHERE THE BAND SHINES AS THEY CONSTANTLY PUSH THEIR OWN BOUNDARIES TO ASSURE THAT EACH OCEAN DISCO SHOW IS A ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCE. ANTHEMS OF OCEAN, SPACE, TIME AND THE NATURAL WORLD ARE CHANNELED THROUGHOUT OCEAN DISCO'C WORK. INCLUDING EXCERPTS FROM BROADCAST, ACCOMPANIED BY ATMOSPHERICS TO CAPTURE A SPECIFIC MOMENT OF MOOD. OVERALL THE MIXTURE OF ELECTRONIC SYNTHS. LIVE INSTRUMENTATION AND NATURAL CLIPS. CREATES A VERY RELATABLE, EARTHY, ORGANIC SOUND.
