One of the most admired deep house combos ever, The Rurals, return in a triumphant way with their brand new long player "Ocean". Andy Compton, mastermind and creator of The Rurals, has invited an illustrious list of artists to participate in the project including singers Ladybird, Jaidene Veda, Diviniti, Magic Soul, Rowan and Irantzu, as well as celebrated musicians Charlie Hernshaw, Pete Morris, Andy Barton and Jeff Bass - the result speaks for itself as from beginning to the end, the eleven songs of the album take you on a journey through mind, body and soul, letting you explore the beauty and elegance of soulful deep house music only The Rurals can deliver. This is as good as it gets - a sure-fire candidate for album of the year.
