What is Body Ocean? We’re two friends from opposite ends of the globe: Jeremy from New Zealand and Nik from the Netherlands. Body Ocean is us exploring dance music together. We met through drum & bass years ago, and became close friends when we realized we both loved a lot of the same things. We also love each others’ countries and culture; we’ve endured many long-haul flights exploring each others’ worlds. As musicians, working on drum & bass for years, our curiosity grew towards different ends of the dance music spectrum. When we saw Green Velvet play and went to Dirty Bird parties respectively the vibe there was just so infectious that the music stuck its hooks in us. We realized there was an amazing sense of freedom there, which was reflected in the people on the dance floor. That musical freedom and ‘genre-agnostic’ attitude provided an exciting departure point for a journey of exploration. Much like at the start of an RPG game, where most of the map is still shrouded from view. Who will you be? What great discoveries await? We’ve found influences in a multitude of sounds ranging from R&B to Eurohouse to Garage, and though we’re armed - or should we say burdened - with decades of production experience, this project is more about un-learning the rules than about technical one-upmanship. We want to let go of what we know and what is comfortable, we want to create new combinations and allow for as much eclectic experimentation as we can. We’re also intrigued to find a new expression of performance. To create euphoric high points and introspective low points on a dancefloor with a totally different aesthetic, and without the tropes we’re accustomed to. To us, this project feels like the musical equivalent of rushing out onto the beach to dive headfirst into the rolling waves, instinctively surrendering to the dance between your body and the ocean. Hence the name.
