Trailblazing rapper Ocean Wisdom has today released his brand new mixtape 'Big Talk Vol.1' alongside a music video for the track 'Fatboy' featuring Fatboy Slim. Rather than following ‘Wizville’ up with a third album, Ocean decided to play around a bit on this one. That’s where the titular statement ‘Big Talk’ comes from. “I’m not going too deep – I’m showing people this is how you hit a beat, this is how you hit a drop. That’s why I called it ‘Big Talk’. It’s not soft or quiet. It’s very loud.” This mission kicks off with “4am”. Produced by Kostaki, who Ocean also manages, the track is like a one-two punch to the face. A bar that’ll leave your mouth agape; then boom, before you’ve even caught your breath: another bar, straight to the head. Then again, and again, and again, until you’re knocked back on the floor, taken aback by Ocean’s clean, sharp flow. It’s a tone setter.
Having played a sold out debut UK headline tour in 2018, as well as a sold out headline European tour (see dates in Amsterdam, Athens, Berlin, Paris and more), ‘Big Talk’ is centered around building on Ocean’s gripping live performance. “With this one I’ve filled it with bangers, first day singles – basically: stuff that’s going to make people skank out,” he explains. “Whenever I play it live, people will break a leg – literally.” Selling well into 5-figure capacity venues all across the continent, Ocean is primed to launch into a 2019 Autumn tour with stops all across the country, culminating in a night at London’s mammoth Printworks.
