London-based producer delivers two cuts of killer UK dancefloor sounds on his own label

After a relatively quiet start to 2022, London’s Otik launched his new label Solar Body - with an all too dope ethos to “unite ethereal & meditative atmospheres with all sides of the hardcore continuum” - back in June with the Psyops EP that today he follows up with two fresh joints out today. 

Channeler sees big room trancey synths meet 2-step percussion and breaks and twisted vocal samples meet on this dancefloor destroyer, while Insomnia tones things down just a tad, keeping the UK Garage influence but drawing as much on 2000s r&b as much as classic rave sounds.
