Hitting the road over the past months on his “WOW COOL Tour”, Ookay has been hinting at what’s to come for some time now. Incorporating live instruments to his sets, bringing a fresh feel to the world and driving fans bananas at shows, everyone’s only favorite thief has more news for fans on what’s to come.

Ookay has become a staple in the industry for his ravaging live sets and ability to win over crowds. I remember seeing him at Moonrise in Baltimore, MD this past summer. The festival itself was dominated by base powerhouses and International Powerhouses like Porter Robinson, Dillon Francis and Flosstradomus. The one set that set itself apart from all the others was Ookay’s. Bringing an outstanding ability to cross-genres, interact with the crowd and bridge the gap between the unexpected he captivated what appeared to be one of the largest crowds of the weekend in a daytime set. There was a point when the set was wrapping up (probably about 2 minutes left) and people started to bounce over to the next stage to see the next act on their calendars and Ookay got on the microphone and laughed. Almost to say, yeah, I damn sure annihilated the brains of near the entire damn festival, look how much this place is emptying out as I finish. Yeah, I done made it a long way from not being able to afford Chipotle 2 short years ago.
This album is going to be something of mass proportions. Set your calendar for January 2018 and follow Ookay on socials. Adding fuel to the fire, he has become one of the best personalities in the game.
Also, Tour stop Tampa video cause its rad.
