"Oahu’s Mountain Rain / Garden Flood is made up of two complimentary electronic pieces. Both ambient compositions are exactly fourteen minutes and fourteen seconds, constructed with a tinkerer’s arsenal of synthesizer modules, iPad apps, and a Korg KP3 sampler. The pieces are aptly titled: while “Mountain Rain” gently washes over you like a static shower, “Garden Flood” is a continuous looped deluge of digital blips, beeps, and boops, gaining and losing textural layers as it progresses. Rotating between placidity and near-sensory overload, they create a cycle. As one piece finishes, you yearn for the next."

Hot on the heels of a split cassette with psych droners Honeybrandy, Oahu is back with two sidelong tracks of electronic bliss.
Mountain Rain and Garden Flood are complimentary cycles of sound, each produced with the same setup: a dazzling array of Korg Littlebits synthesizer modules, Teenage Engineering's Pocket Operator Office, and a prototype usb-midi controller unit handbuilt in Brooklyn running various iPad apps, occasionally augmented with a Korg KP3 - and each recorded in a single session as the final rays of the summer sun snuck through September skies.
