  • Oxia will release a new album in May called Tides of Mind. Real name Olivier Raymond, Oxia has been a steady presence in the world of French electronic music since the mid-'90s. Aside from releasing dozens of melodic house and techno EPs on labels like Kompakt and 8bit, he ran the now-defunct label GoodLife with The Hacker and Alex Reynaud. Tides of Mind comes eight years after his first album, 24 Heures, and will mark his debut on the Parisian label InFine. Raymond says it shows him expanding his palette a bit: "I guess I've had a wider range of influences on this album. I started listening to a lot more jazz, classical music and folk." These influences manifest partly in his choice of guest artists, which include the singers Scalde and Mesparrow and the pianist Richard Gow. Miss Kittin makes a vocal appearance as well.
