Australia’s Charles Oliver Drops New Techno EP ‘Saturation Of Self’

The three-track EP is out now.

Charles Oliver is a techno and experimental producer from Melbourne, Australia.

Following on from impressive single releases in ‘Saturation Of Self’ and ‘Invasion’ Charles Oliver delivers his highly anticipated ‘Saturation Of Self’ EP, including brand new single ‘Articulation’.

‘Articulation’ begins with an ominous atmosphere shaped by snarling synth sounds and increasingly distorted percussion, building in intensity before impacting with sudden clarity. Otherworldly synth melodies echo throughout the track, complimenting the relentless, industrial rhythm supplied by Oliver’s impressive drum work.

This latest single rounds out a stirring body of work from the exciting young Melbourne-based producer, who has once again proven his proficiency in writing and producing complex and deeply emotive forward-thinking techno.

Talking about the EP release, Oliver said: “I really wanted to showcase a select body of work I felt boldly signifies my current sound. I’ve been honing in on a more industrial and cinematic sound aesthetic lately; something I feel shaped the overall mood of the EP. The three tracks all sort of came to fruition in one hit during the middle of the pandemic in 2020. Despite it being a time where clubs weren’t really operating, the EP definitely represents a longing desire for crunchy saturated drums banging out through a loud system. The EP release reveals the third track ‘Articulation’; this one hits a little more progressive and melodic, something I feel complements some of the harder, aggressive sonic elements I played with in ‘SOS’ and ‘Invasion’. It’s honestly been a little strange making club music when everyone’s sitting at home, though now with Australia’s lockdown easing I’m really keen to hear these out, and hopefully across the globe once we all open up.”

‘Articulation’ comes after singles ‘Saturation Of Self’ (#1 Beatport Techno Chart) and ‘Invasion’ that has garnered support from world-class artists including Joris Voorn, TSHA, Adriatique, HAAi, Nicole Moudaber, Rebūke, John Digweed, AKA AKA, Sasha Carassi & more. Oliver’s reputation in Australia and abroad is fast growing and has seen him tapped for performances on some of Australia’s most iconic stages including Rainbow Serpent and Melbourne’s Revolver nightclub.
