Set to cause serious waves across not only the Nigerian and African music scenes but the international music industry at large, with his infectious, signature Afro-fusion sound, Nigerian music act Oxlade presents the release of his dazzling debut EP ‘Oxygene’.
Launched with the melodic, Spax-produced ‘Away’ – Oxygene’ sees summer arriving early with a selection of six vibrant tracks which offer a formal introduction to the talents of the exciting Lagos-based musician Oxlade, ahead of his inevitable and imminent ascension to stratospheric heights.
Backed-up with production from top class Nigerian producers including Spax, Dera, Lussh, Echo and London-based Nosa Apollo and featuring a must-hear collaboration with the British-Nigerian singer Moelogo on ‘Tables Turn’, the EP combines Afrobeat, Hip-Hop, R&B and Country influences with Oxlade’s distinctive, soulful vocals and mesmerising songwriting and storytelling to create a project that is undeniably a modern classic in the making.
Speaking on the ‘Oxygene’ EP, Oxlade said:
“Music is the air that I breathe, which is why the EP is named ‘Oxygene’. There’s a play on words in there too, with the Oxy’ being my nickname and with the biological ‘gene’, I’m letting out a part of myself to the world which contains love, consciousness and pain.”
