Dominic Pierce – Hoop Loop$

Also Available On: Tape Cassette

We’ve got a serious slurpee crush on Dominic Pierce’s latest project, Hoop Loops. Starting with the playground basketball hoop + slurpee aesthetic. A flavour that started with his first Inner Ocean tape, Come Again, that now goes in for a second round, heavy.

Childhood nostalgia is here, again, felt on every track. Clownin’ your friends on the court (Swishin’), grabbing a slurpee late at night without telling your parents (Badboyz), blasting that hard hitting mix with the windows down (Never Never No), and of course falling for that girl in summer school with the pink hair and sneaking out your window to see what’s up (Still feat. Felivand; Smooved Out).

A beat work style reminiscent of Ohbliv or Knowledge, but fully embracing that 80s/90s R&B flavour, Hoop Loops is a perfect blend of chopped beats & loops with pop sensibility. And it’s seriously satisfying.

dominic pierce – overxtra

Also Available On: Tape Cassette

Dominic Pierce returns with “overxtra”, a 6 track EP that’s like a quick reverie; deep and full of feeling. This release is the second collab between Inner Ocean and Close To Modern, featuring appearances by Sports Boyfriend, Rhakim Ali and Flutes (Co-Founder of CTM).

Producers notes “the songs were made using an SP 202, 303, and 404. Sampled synths on 202, arranged and processed on 303 and 404 to get a subtle flavour from each of the SP’s.”
