512 – OC & Verde


Ben O’Connor & Jon Verde aka OC & Verde both hail from the North West of England, they were born in the 1980’s and raised in the 90’s on a healthy diet of 80’s Synth Pop, Acid House and Techno. For the last few years they’ve been cutting their production teeth recording under a different name but now they’ve dropped the alias to deliver a new sound.

Summer 2016 will saw the release of the first of several new OC & Verde tracks on Knee Deep in Sound. Having already kicked off with Symphony, that featured on the Knee Deep Miami Sampler. The duo are now working on remixes for a number of labels, the first to see the light of day are a remixes for Glasgow Underground Label boss Kevin McKay and Selador label boss Dave Seaman, with a remix for John Digweed’s Bedrock Records coming later in the year.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
