Okibi brings a diverse selection of styles to every live performance, from forward-thinking footwork, house and hip-hop, to rolling liquid riddims, dubwise exclusives and grimy street anthems. Steeped in the hip-hop tradition, he utilizes scratching and turntablism techniques, effects and controllers in the mix, creating a distinctive and varied soundscape.
Okibi’s polyrhythmic left-field productions obscure genre conventions. Spearheading his own unique, bass-heavy GRAVELIFE sound, he draws influences from everything from gangster rap to black metal. Described as “dramatic” and “chilling”, Okibi throws the listener into a syncopated auditory abyss.
As co-founder of Union Sound System, Okibi supports a network of avant-garde musicians, artists, designers, technicians and promoters. Involved in a number of projects, including the live p.a. electro-punk stylings of AUTOMATON, Okibi stays true to old-school roots while pioneering future vibes.
