Few things induce tunnel-vision like human loss. Revelries - Isak Gaines’ debut pair of releases with Inner Ocean - explores the tunnel from entrance to exit through the lens of a relationship that was doomed to fail from the onset. Airy vocal melodies draped over jagged sample collages, loose textural washes, and intricately layered drum programming lead the way through the selfish, confused entryway of Pt. I to an exit in Pt. II that is both more reflective and outward-looking.
Part-producer, part-improviser, part-composer, and part-visual artist, Isak Gaines has a creative identity that isn’t easily categorized. Between densely-layered sample manipulations, intricate chamber arrangements, and multi-instrumental improvisations, his work focuses on experimentation in search of the point where they all intersect.

Inner Ocean Sessions is an artist residency series started in 2019, to bring artists to the Inner Ocean HQ in Calgary, AB, to collaborate and create music. The Warehouse Collection all took place in the Westinghouse Foundry, a dark warehouse in the rail yards on the east side of town.
We present the collection of EP's together in a Double LP Vinyl and Tape Cassette package to immortalize this special time in Inner Ocean history.
