After making her Monstercat debut last month, Canadian breakout producer OBLVYN returned to the label today with her effervescent new single, “Enter REM.” The first taste of her forthcoming EP, “Enter REM” takes listeners on a sonic journey through OBLVYN’s vivid dreams. Mirroring the rush of falling into an otherworldly dimension, the upbeat retro-synth lead, powerful bassline, and crisp percussion form a vortex of vibrant sounds that captivate listeners.
OBLVYN shares, “‘Enter REM’ is the first single from my upcoming EP, which is entirely based on the concept of dreams. It kickstarts the adventure by taking you out of reality and into a subconscious exploration of the dream world, where imagination runs wild and possibilities are endless.”
The Edmonton-based prodigy is carving a niche in the electronic space with her impressive piano chops and live instrumentation techniques. Amassing followers on her social channels for her lauded in-studio demonstrations, fans can look forward to seeing OBLVYN in her element when she makes her anticipated debut next month at Monstercat Compound on the main stage.

OBLVYN’s musical journey began at the age of 5 with training in classical piano, later on becoming a guitarist in a pop-punk band, and finishing post-secondary with a degree in jazz and pop music. After years of experimenting in different styles of music, OBLVYN has settled on future bass as her primary genre but often steps out of those bounds to create a sound that is unique to her individuality as an artist. With the use of keyboard performance, melodic soundscapes, aggressive synths, and accents of cute timbres, her sound can be described as youthful, aggressive, and emotionally captivating. Influenced by artists such as Zedd, Virtual Riot, Seven Lions, Au5, Haywyre, and taking inspiration from the wonders of the universe, nature’s beauty, and the human experience, OBLVYN invites listeners on an adventure that anyone can find themselves immersed in.
