Melbourne based, 23 year old Oscar Key Sung singer / songwriter / producer has just released two new tracks that are available to stream and download. His sounds are both mesmerizing and dreamy. He captures that future r'n'b sound perfectly, but also spinning something of his own sound. Oscar has been very busy since becoming part of Two Bright Lakes as one half of Oscar + Martin in 2010. In early 2013 Oscar's beat was picked by MELOGHOST (Ghostpoet x MeLo-X) "WecanWorkitout" and his vocals featured on Andras Fox new LP "Embassy Cafe".

This last month, Florida-based vaporwave artist HBOCINEMAX released what he refers to as a collection of 'MTV Pop' titled 'Exposé'. Like most artists listed under the category, he incorporates pitch-shifted lyrics and vocals with samples of easy-listening and R&B. Contrasting the multitude of established genres that it incorporates thoroughly. The highlights, in my opinion, being the title track and 'Glass Rose'. Which really showcase his only real attributes that make him stand out from any previous artist to take on the genre. Still on the subject of vaporwave, a label that has become infamous for their attachment to it lately. I`ve been told you can look forward to an HBOCINEMAX release on fortune 500 sometime in the near future.

Grab and listen to it at it's entirety over on bandcamp. Your in for a treat.

Its a perfect catalyst to escape from reality and dive into a sound wonderland. Check out more of his sounds on soundcloud. Jeremi aka 10th Letter was generous enough to contirbute a mix for this issue of the DECKast. Read what he had to say about the mix below and get lost for the next thirty minutes..
