180gm milky white vinyl. Their sixth and most ambitious album to date, Wasted Space. A meditation on the nature of existence in the face of what can be insurmountable odds, Wasted Space finds The Oscillation painting from the darker shades of the kaleidoscopic scale.

Album opener `Entity' establishes the pace with a focus on the dancefloor as much as on the navigation of existence.

Fusing muscular grooves with an industrial wall of sound, these are bold steps into wholly new territories.

"There's an irony at play here," considers Castellanos. "It's a twisted party song, albeit a party for one." But what a party it is.

The mutant disco is bolstered by the rhythmic call-and-response of `Drop', a track that eschews conventional methods of dance sensibility for more instinctive and primal urges.

Wasted Space's more somatic moments are tempered and balanced by episodes of contemplation and reflection.

Fuelled by dreamy, orchestral sweeps and mournful, sustained notes, `The Human Shell' is a redemptive piece that at first glance appears to be resigned to the futility of existence.

But look once again and there you'll find hope. "People will be able to relate to this song," states Castellanos.

"There's a lot of love and empathy in there." Bringing Wasted Space to an emphatic conclusion is the epic instrumental `Luminous Being'.

Ambitious in scope and delivery, it methodically and unequivocally slow releases repressed emotions to throw the wider world into sharper focus.

Hedonistic yet reflective, Wasted Space is an album that moves purposely along a high wire as it finds the perfect balance between dealing with life and escaping it.
