Oxime reinvents classic liquid DnB for a contemporary feel with a distinct mix of live instruments and lush pads, offset by rolling basslines and funky drums. If you are a fan of chilled beats or old school drum & bass, this is for you!
I love the cinematic feel and touches of jazz, soul and Latin that weave their wave into these beautiful sound landscapes that make me feel like I'm flying

Oxime, aka Cecilia Weckstrom, is an emerging, independent artist bridging jazz, electronica, drum and bass, ambient and cinematic music. Her focus is crafting timeless yet contemporary sounds that tell a story, fuel deep creative work or journeys on land, in air or just in your mind.
Her debut album, Oxygen, is a nod to early influences in the liquid drum & bass community. Carbon and now Hydrogen evolve her layering of acoustic instruments, atmospheric soundscapes and jazz influences for a distinct blend of organic and electronic sounds.
The recent single, Meditations is her first foray into cinematic soundtracks and intelligent dance music. It accompanies an exhibition of meditative and otherworldly acrylic sculptures by Björn Weckström, the designer of the jewellery of Princess Leia in Star Wars.
The spark to become a self-taught producer and songwriter was programming a Commodore 64 computer to play classical music as a child. The surprising infusions of synths and acoustic instruments into evolving textures have become a staple of Cecilia's productions ever since.
Moving to London from her native Finland coincided with the rise of liquid drum & bass pioneers, such as LTJ Bukem, Big Bud, DJ Marky, and labels such as GoodLooking, Shogun Audio and Hospital Records.
Other important influences include Ludovic Navarre (St. Germain), Ninja Tune, Blue Note Records artists and recently, &ME, Sparrow & Barbossa and other organic house downtempo artists.
