Ohmfield – “Habitual Cold”


“Habitual Cold” is another success from Ohmfield, the London-based producer who has impressed in the past with tracks like “Rest” and “Worm Can.” Touting a wintry soundscape, gradually accompanied by strings and murky synths, “Habitual Cold” is an atmospherically engaging effort. “The track was created as a contemplative piece for coming to terms with loss and the prolonged feeling of cold that can follow,” the artist says. “I wanted to create an organic feel throughout with a good groove but by still retaining sincerity.” That intent is certainly accomplished here, especially as the melancholic strings lace the glitched vocal effect and bass-laden turbulence to conclude this gripping electronic effort.

This track is part of our ongoing, best-of monthly playlist. Stream it below:
