“Sydney-sider Oh Boy has been at this game for a while, never straying from his razor-sharp creative vision. It shows through both his music and the moves he’s been making.” – Pilerats
“Oh Boy’s style spans Jersey club, ’90s RnB and hip hop, electro and Japanese Kawaii, and is guaranteed to put festival-goers in a good mood with its bright, happy sound.” – The Daily Telegraph
“With every track Oh Boy drops, he’s showing more and more facets of his music, and outdoing himself every time.”
– Purple Sneakers
With an eye for style and an even stronger conviction for creating moving soundscapes, Oh Boy has quickly become one of Australia’s most sought after producers. The Sydney-based artist today launches the first chapter of a new era with the first cut from his debut EP – ‘Talk To M333 (feat. Oordayya & LOVER)’.
The single marks one of Oh Boy’s favourite musical journeys and came together as a cataclysmic team effort of emerging talent. Oh Boy enlisted help from friends Golden Vessel, Tasker, BLESSED with vocals from LOVER and french singer Oordaya.
Recently returned from a writing trip to the USA and fresh from an appearance at Brisbane’s Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Oh Boy also announces the impending arrival of debut EP Brentwood Heightsset to release on Friday 3 May. His signature glistening pop sounds are littered throughout the six tracks which see a progression in both instrumentation and concept. Featuring collaborations with Cub Sport, LOVER,Cult Shotta and Oordaya, it’s a collection of inspiring sessions with new friends and old.
“The amount of people involved who are all beautiful friends of mine reminded me of how amazing and important collaboration is,” he says.
Written partially at Oh Boy’s Sydney abode, partly at an isolated area on the east coast of Oahu, Hawaii and partly at a house in Brentwood Heights, Los Angeles, this EP is as eclectic as the locations it was conceived. “Brentwood Heights illustrates the journey and transition of a conscious soul entangled in modern societal expectation. Finding balance through one’s self, spirituality, psychedelia, collaboration and love.”
Human connection is at the core of Oh Boy’s ethos and collaboration is just one part of this clever producer’s talents. He already has collaborations with Mallrat and NINAJIRACHI under his belt and was hand-picked by heavyweight Alison Wonderland late last year for the EXTRA Support Acts campaign – a partnership between YouTube, Wrigley’s EXTRA and Universal Music.
‘Talk To M333‘ marks the beginning of a new era for this steadfast creative and heralds the beginning of something big for Oh Boy with the best surprises yet to come.
‘Talk to M333 (feat. Oordaya & LOVER)‘ is out everywhere now. Brentwood Heights EP is out on Friday 3 May.
