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-born OXLADE has released his new single ‘Away’, taken from his forthcoming debut EP ‘Oxygene’ out this Friday (27th March).
The melodic, Spax-produced track ‘Away’ sees Oxlade building on the major buzz he has been causing since the release of his first single ‘Shugar’ in 2018 – and a slew of top notch solo tracks and collaborations – and gives fans a taster of the upcoming project which will offer a formal introduction to the talents of the exciting Lagos-based musician. With a mix of Afrobeat, Hip-Hop, R&B and Country influences, Oxlade’s distinctive, soulful vocals and mesmerising songwriting and storytelling, is backed-up with production from some of Nigeria’s top class producers, ‘Oxygene’ is set to be a must-listen EP.
Speaking on the forthcoming ‘Oxygene’ EP, Oxlade said: “Music is the air that I breathe, which is why I’ve named the EP ‘Oxygene’. With the play on words with Oxy’ being my nickname and the biological ‘gene’, I’m letting out a part of myself to the world which contains love, consciousness and pain.”
