OSKR: Control

Protect the clubs at all costs! Instead, control the dance floor with new artist OSKR. Hailing from Melbourne, the young artist manages to mix house, bass and elements of EDM into a smooth blend with his single 'Control'.

OSKR - Control

I’ve never been a fan of dance music or EDM or whatever it’s called these days and I didn’t think I would like this track. In fact, upon the first time I pressed play, I wasn’t feeling it. But the more the song went on and the more I listened, I found myself tapping my feet along to it. Haha.

I guess that’s a lesson for me not to judge anything by its cover, huh?

When the vocal samples fade and the track gets heavier… that’s the moment when I really start to sit up and take notice. The multiple layers within ‘Control’ are evident after the first 90 seconds – full of heavy bass and bouncy beats. I don’t even mind the vocals when they creep their way back into the tune later on. Everything just blends so well together by that point.

At only 21 years of age, Melbourne’s OSKR is onto something here and I’m looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next. Keep up to date with his releases via his Soundcloud page.

And if you like what you hear, you might wanna check him out at the Paradise Music Festival this weekend (Nov 29-Dec 1).
