Oasis marks a welcome return to action for Darius Vaikas, who last pricked the collective consciousness with his 2015 Guilt EP on Best Kept Secret. He begins with "Brother", a crackly instrumental lullaby built around cascading music box melodies, rich keys and fuzzy aural textures, before stepping towards the dancefloor via the atmospheric deep house shuffle of "The Bells". Title track "Oasis" continues on a similar theme, with alternately chiming and tumbling melodies stretching out across a clicking, tech-tinged rhythm track. Throw in rising chords and synthesizer motifs, and you have a chunk of effortlessly lazy audio sunshine. Finally, he layers swirling textures and fluid electronics atop a stuff house groove on fine closer "Save Me".
