ABOUT THE ARTIST ---------------------- OAKK produces dynamic, eclectic, and infectious bass music that is impossible to resist. Based out of Calgary, Canada, OAKK works closely with the illustrious Hifi Club as a resident DJ and curator with his monthly club night “New Wave”. His high energy DJ sets display his commitment to diversity and flow, while telling a cohesive story that covers a vast musical range and is nothing short of striking.
Musically speaking, OAKK’s catalogue is melodically beautiful and highly energetic— incorporating his respect for the cultures and communities that have influenced the musical landscape of the present. Coming off of the release of his ‘Hysterical EP’ on ‘Aufect Recordings’, comes a collaboration with Rider Shafique entitled ‘Growing’. An apt title considering OAKK’s progression in 2018. The ‘Growing EP’ is set to open up 2019 on Hong Kong’s underground bass music label ‘Unchained Recordings’, alongside two other unique and genre-defying tracks.
With frequent performances at premier festivals such as Bass Coast and Sled Island, the next step for OAKK is to expand into new territory and share his sound around the globe. The versatility of his productions and DJ sets offer an unpredictable nature that never compromises the clarity of his vision. This intense passion for music and community has brought OAKK to his current stage, and given him the tools needed to propel his creative endeavors into the future.
