break down the "language barrier" that has been prevalent in the development
of current synthetic dance music. This "language barrier" is not of
the traditional sense of different languages spoken between different
countries, but refers to a fear, or reluctance, to incorporate vocals
into this broad genre of dance music. As the compilation title suggests,
ORAL-OLIO is a collection of musical works that all incorporate the

of musical works). While the voice may be human or not, female or male,
all the songs presented here use the voice in a semi-traditional pop
manner, that becomes subversive and drastically new in the context of
contemporary electronic dance music. This approach of using vocals obviously
borrows from the past and present, yet it somehow steals from the future
in this new re-contextualized format. This
