J.Fur – “Man From Oslo”


Strutting a hypnotic club-friendly house sound, “Man From Oslo” is the latest single from San Diego-based artist J.Fur. Representing the first single from the upcoming Extravertical EP, “Man From Oslo” proves atmospherically engrossing with ghostly synth tones lingering amidst a pulsing percussive presence. Serene synth pads and club-forward percussion complement vocal-esque snippets for a sound fit for late-night drives with its synth tones, while also expressing a rhythmic vibrancy that suggests one more go-round at the club before heading home.

Past the two-minute turn, a more rhythm-fronted section builds with compelling allure to the plucky synth warbles and vocal effects, the production bearing a fond reminiscence to Röyksopp at points. Mellower synth pulsations further the hypnotic elements as this stellar single comes to a close. I’m certainly anticipating the Extravertical EP.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2023’ Spotify playlist.
