Individually comprised of Ben O’Connor and Jon Verde, this Manchester-born double act have appeared on the playlists of some of house and techno’s most prolific names since breaking through on Hot Since 82’s KDIS label with ‘Maasai’.
Touted by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong as “ones to watch” in 2018, OC & Verde have forged together a far-out, tough signature sound of deep melodic house and techno. Such a sound identity has gained support from some true underground heavyweights including Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, Solomun, Tale Of Us and Maceo Plex.
Following an impressive outing at Egg London this past Friday, Ben and Jon talked us through 10 dance floor weapons they treated clubbers to last week.
Adam Beyer, Green Velvet & Layton Giordani – ‘Space Date’
Heard Adam playing this for a while, got it on promo a few weeks ago and have been playing it every set, it’s an absolute weapon.
Steve Parry – ‘303 V’ (OC & Verde Remix)
This one has been getting plays of Adam Beyer, John Digweed, Sasha, our favourite remix to date, it does the business!
Remake – ‘Blade Runner’ (Maceo Plex Remix)
This is a phenomenal remix, can’t stop playing it.
OC & Verde, Eli & Fur – ‘Sweet Perfection’ (Sharam’s Crazi Dub)
The boss Sharam did a wicked job on this dub mix of our track Sweet Perfection with Eli & Fur.
Skream – ‘Poison’
Bit different from Skream this but goes down a treat.
Giovanna – ‘Can’t Go Back’ (OC & Verde Remix)
We loved working with this vocal, been closing our sets with this remix, its kind of different for us but we’re really happy with how it came out.
OC & Verde – ‘Hex’
Biggest track in our sets at the moment.
Victor Ruiz – ‘The Eye of the Beholder’
Victor can do no wrong, playing everything from him at the minute.
Drunken Kong – ‘A New Light’
Another producer that we can’t stop playing, this on does serious damage.
The Prodigy – ‘Narayan’
We’ve done an edit of this that we have been hammering all summer, keep your eyes peeled for it…
OC & Verde will appear for Casa in Plymouth this Friday 27th July. You can purchase tickets here.
