‘Sporadic’ speaks to relatable scenes from London life, as well as being a powerful testament to Oscar’s wife and child, after whom album opener ‘Shine’ is named. The album spans grime, hip hop, garage and RnB, and Oscar’s bars are conscientious and powerful throughout.
In the run-up to the release, Oscar held secret listening parties for fans on his Instagram stories, as well as offering them the opportunity to ask them to come to their city, pick them up and drive around listening to ‘Sporadic’ in full.
