In 2012, San Martin moves to Moscow and Rafael Femiano remains as a solo act. After the release of Vigilia (2013, Knockturne Records), Oikos presents his second LP The Great Upheaval, co-released between Envelope Collective and Knockturne Records.
The Great Upheaval is an imaginary soundtrack for every moment in history ravaged by violence and superstition. A collection of pieces projecting landscapes dusted by seizures and turmoils. These layered compositions are packed of electricity and analogue walls, acoustic textures, drone strings and cinematic looped-movements. A sonic cathedral illuminated only by the fire that remains after battle and precedes the cult. A sonic miasma for each end of cycle.
