Hitting the North American roads over the past months on his “WOW COOL Tour” (now ripping through Europe), Ookay has been hinting at what’s to come for some time now. Incorporating live instruments to his sets, bringing a fresh feel to the world and driving fans bananas at shows, everyone’s only favorite thief has more news for fans on what’s to come. He will be dropping his highly anticipated single “COOL” f his forthcoming album this Friday, February 2.
Ookay has become a staple in the industry for his ravaging live sets and ability to win over crowds. A highlight to remember was seeing him at Moonrise in Baltimore, MD this past summer. The festival itself was headlined by International Powerhouses like Porter Robinson, Dillon Francis and Flosstradomus. The one set that set itself apart from all the others was Ookay’s. Bringing an outstanding ability to cross-genres, interact with the crowd and bridge the gap between the unexpected he captivated what appeared to be one the largest crowds the weekend in a daytime set. There was a point when the set was wrapping up (probably about 2 minutes left) and people started to bounce over to the next stage to see the next act on their calendars and Ookay got on the microphone and laughed. Almost to say, yeah, I damn sure annihilated the brains near the entire damn festival, look how much this place is emptying out as I finish. Yeah, I done made it a long way from not being able to afford Chipotle 2 short years ago.
This track is going to leave you with more feels that that time when you were about 15 or 16 in your boyfriend/girlfriends basement. The “Thief” DJ/Producer is going to make 2018 his year. Ookay has been up there with Dillon Francis for EDM personality the century and we can anticipate much more personality to come in the very near future. Stay tuned for the drop this Friday! Here is a doggie to make your heart melt as well as a recap from his WOW COOL TOUR show in Tampa, FL, which give me fomo (feels mass optimization).
