Camden born rapper Ocean Wisdom spent years perfecting his craft, remaining relatively quiet, even in his home town of Brighton until a chance studio session gave birth to his debut track ‘Walkin’. Recorded in one take with no hook or ad-libs, just raw, unfiltered energy and originality this track kick started his meteoric rise.
The first half of 2018 was a monumental year for the Brighton native, having smashed a string of sell out shows in the UK and Europe on his ‘Wizville’ tour as well receiving high praise from critics such as Mojo Mag and The Guardian. Ocean went on to grace the 1Xtra studios and performed a historic Live Lounge alongside Dizzee Rascal for their track ‘Revvin’, before lighting up social networks with an exceptional cover of Busta Rhymes ‘Gimme Some More’.
Fresh off these successes Ocean quickly seized the opportunity to take the next step in his career and in 2019 announced that he had formed his own label ‘Beyond Measure Records’ and would be self releasing his first mixtape on there – ‘Big Talk Vol.1’ which boasts and impressive list of collaborators and featured artists including Dizzee Rascal, Fatboy Slim, Akala, Freddie Gibbs, Ghetts, P Money and LD to name a few.
Ferocious and fierce with a faultless flow, Ocean Wisdom stays high on the agenda and has certainly cemented himself as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the UK Rap scene.
