We premiere new music from Dublin-based Oaklee as the up & coming producer serves a dreamy free download. ‘Colour TV’ is a rolling house groove that pays ode to 90’s deep house, leaning heavily on low-end funk and trance-licked euphoria, while a poignant vocal ties the composition together.
Rising through the ranks of The Camden Academy, studying under the watchful eye of Pusher, Oaklee has been carving out a name for himself in Dublin’s house music scene. Possessing shrewd ear for the house of yesteryear, the young producer strives to bring flavours of Chicago into music that is very much rooted around his hometown of Dublin.
The relatively new name has been turning heads within the last twelve months, reaching a number of milestones in his career, from having his unreleased played on Rinse FM by Belfast native Holly Lester to receiving support from Hammer on BBC Radio 1, the budding producer has been ticking all the right boxes for a new producer on the scene. With new music forthcoming on Homage New York, as well as starting his new Dublin-based party Defiant Sounds, Oaklee is steering in the right direction as we edge closer to 2024.
We feature his latest offering which comes in the form of a heavely free download. ‘Colour TV’ is oozing with etheral house sounds, as he continues to nod his head towards classic 90’s house grooves, while intertwining his love for elated arpeggios and trance-soaked pads that are synonymous with the Dublin sound. An emotional vocal line lies in front of shuffled drums and fluffy synth lines, capturing a vintage moment of house elation.
