Introducing: Boxed In

Boxed In is songwriter and producer Oli Bayston. Having played in indie band Keith, written for The 2 Bears, sung for George FitzGerald and been a producer for the likes of Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs, Rosie Lowe and The Bohicas, Oli is now bringing his wide array of talents to bear on his own solo project.

Boxed In brings together Oli’s two greatest musical loves: Krautrock and house music. Inspired by the motorik rhythms of Can, Cluster and Neu! as well as house producers, like Pépé Bradock and Theo Parrish, Oli nevertheless emphasises that the art of pop song writing is right at the heart of Boxed In.

His experiences of playing live with Keith mean he’s dedicated to recording and playing his music live, with no samplers or backing tracks. His intention with Boxed In live is to emulate the propulsion of a fully electronic set up using acoustic instruments and the flexibility of human touch.

“A textural pick ’n’ mix of Technicolor piano powered by an ear for quirky pop and sticky sweet earworms” – 8/10, The Line of Best Fit
