“In The Deep” is inspired by many scuba diving trips and sitting deep on the ocean bed, exploring coral and finding beautiful colours. I wanted to create a laid back feeling with uplifting tones, something I feel when floating along a reef.
Still in lockdown, I decided to move away from Brighton and back towards the hustle & bustle of London. Moonlit Waves was written on my last night by the beach, watching the moon reflect of the waves was mesmerising. Hooking up with my good friend melloe on the way home for a few drinks led to us writing Fluid & Fuzzy, and having a lovely hangover the next day!”
Ol Wallace – Moonlit Waves EP
Originating out of the USA, Ol Wallace the ‘Cali 90s Kid’ grew up to the likes of Dilla, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, and anything with a soulful vibe!
Tom’s first 2 releases with Stereofox Records not only showcased the potential of his laid-back and spacious sound but captivated hundreds of thousands listeners. His February release – a 4-track EP titled Brighton Memories scored more than 250k plays receiving praise and support from renowned curators like Fantastic Music, NEOTIC, and freshgoodies. In addition, it also received high praise from the community of Homework Radio – a chillhop/lofi YouTube channel with 450k subscribers.
We’re excited to continue Ol Wallace’s story and be part of his sonic journey – evidence of the smoothness and fit of our mutual work together. Moonlit Waves serves as a gateway between 2 major episodes in Tom’s life – the bold and adventurous change he embraces by moving from Brighton to London during the pandemic times. The 5-track collection goes beyond the chase of zen jazzy sound. It is a personal confession and a way to commemorate memories, friends and experiences.
