Troniq Music presents “Eclipse” EP by boy Oxlade, strictly produced by Coublon. This a follow up to his debut EP – OXYGENE. It houses the recently released single ‘Ojuju‘.
Oxlade is the stage name of Nigerian singer Ikuforiji Abdulrahman Olaitan, best known for such Afro-fusion hits as “AWAY,” “HOLD ON,” and “O2.” Inspired by the music of Nigerian star Wande Coal, Oxlade cut his first demo at age 11 with the help of his uncle, a professional sound mixer.
On the Eclipse EP, Oxlade joins forces with producer Coublon for an emotive dose of Afropop. Cocooned within falsetto-draped soundbeds, Oxlade (Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman) navigates the complexities of love with infectious lyricism. While “More” displays an eagerness for romance, “Ojuju” folds a sense of trepidation between its polyrhythms. With its beguiling refrains, dub bassline and mellifluous chords, “Incomplete” best captures the magic of this duo.
