It’s impossible not to feel your spine tingle when the opening notes of Oklou’s ‘galore’ play out—all the more on a proper sound system. Delicate, ethereal and avant-garde, Oklou’s music hits the exact middle ground between her classical music education, today’s top-notch electronic music production and the future of pop. From her debut EP ‘The Rite of May’ to the above-named mixtape, the French singer/producer/DJ/actress (real name: Marylou Mayniel) has quickly and deservedly garnered a cult following. We can’t wait to finally welcome this star, who’s releasing her first full-length record this year, to Dekmantel Festival aan het IJ.
