GIORGIO OEHLERS (NL)
Raised on a diet of soul, jazz, funk, r&b and fusion, Rotterdam-based Giorgio Oehlers is in a class of his own. The precocious keyboardist blends his beats with a variety of textures and live instrumentation - redefining how one would listen to contemporary electronic music. His unique ability to reference the roots, while injecting a fresh perspective into music is indeed rare these days. The single 'I Rise' released on our Free Download Series is a clear demonstration of that, and has impressively chalked almost 100k plays. The soul is strong in this man, and we look forward to growing from strength to strength with him.
