OAKE is a German experimental techno project that ventures into the sonic realms of fear and uncertainty. First discovered by Karl “Regis” O’Connor on his Downwards imprint, OAKE has become established as one of the most unique products of the genre. OAKE pushes an unforgiving style that’s demanding of listeners, devoid of stock value or predictable moralizing, and which seeks to find and create romance in a greyscale world of brutalist architecture and all-pervasive automation.
Now a solo project of Eric Oake, OAKE releases on genre-defining labels like Downwards, Stroboscopic Artefacts, SNTS, 47, and has seen remix duties on imprints like Horo, Noiztank, and Cluster Node. The result has been a sound that arrests the listener’s consciousness with a rigorous balance of ethereal vocal seduction and concussive rhythm, projecting them into a world where the forces of techno-science and magic find themselves in constant reciprocal conversation.
OAKE’s intense, theatrical live shows have captivated club and festival goers all around the world, alongside DJ sets that range from grooming night-setting openers, all-night ambient vinyl sessions, to intense techno closings led by a fearless techno sound that brings together all kinds of broken styles – always keeping things high-pace, always full-on, and always producing a particular sense of satisfaction on dancefloors across the world.
