Ookay – Thief (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Once a producer has established his or herself within a specific genre, the choice to deviate from the confines of that sound can prove to be an uphill battle. Dim Mak frontrunner, Ookay, has carved out a niche for himself within the trap genre, and has thusly built a loyal following of devotees, who yearn for his bass-heavy productions. Not one to let the confines of a genre hold him back, Ookay has previously picked up side projects and partnered with other producers in unexpected ways. His latest creation, “Thief,” keeps in line with this variation and comes as a free download with a special message to skeptical fans:
“I think it sucks when people always expect one certain type of music from you as a producer. So I made something different, and I’m going to keep making different stuff because thats what a producer is supposed to do =] Let me know what you guys think below, enjoy!”
Opening with a choppy, glistening bass line, the song ascends emotionally thanks to high pitched vocals from Ookay himself, culminating in a resplendently tactile saxophone arrangement that comes soaring in at the break. While “Thief” may not have the overarching sound that most fans expected, it’s a fresh production that once again demonstrates Ookay’s diverse array of talent.
