Lil Ocean – Out of Context EP
His beats have been heard behind voices such as Andreas Todini’s and ISSUE’s. This week, young Swedish producer Lil Ocean unveiled his first solo project, the rather experimental Out of Context EP.
– I just wanted to have fun with this project. That’s the reason why it isn’t any full separate tracks, just playful and vibrant sounds. It starts out quite conventional and gets more weird as time goes, the young producer said about the EP in an interview with AKA Sthlm.

The DIY weapons of Ukraine
British photographer Tom Jamieson spent two weeks out in Ukraine taking pictures of the revolution. He came back with a stunning array of photos that represent the DIY nature of the rebel cause, presented this week via Dazed Digital.
– These weapons are inadequate against guns, but there’s a beauty to that. They’re pieces of art that symbolise and represent their anger rather than being tools that will win the war, the photographer said about the motives of his series.
