Ok Sure lures listeners ever deeper into her otherworldly electronica today with the announcement of an eight track EP, Pleomorphism, out February 2. Anyone who has glimpsed Ok Sure’s distinctive imagery and unique downtempo, industrial, dark, melodic electronica will know she’s not one to follow conventions. The same goes for the release of Pleomorphism with the Melbourne producer drip feeding each track ahead of release. The first offering ‘Nightshade’ is already live and the second, hellish ‘Modern Devil’ is fittingly due just in time for Halloween (October 31) with plenty more to follow.
Coming together almost by accident, Akaysha (Ok Sure) had initially intended a very different second EP. Created almost exclusively in her bedroom, mixed and mastered by herself, the talented DIY producer has collected an eclectic mix of eight tracks spanning pulsating techno, deep house and electronica. A sonic and personal journey through a life altering event, many of the tracks are inspired by a brief but significant poly relationship.
Following the aesculapian name of her debut EP Anamnesis, which refers to someones medical history, Ok Sure continues the theme across to her second title. “The guy I was involved with actually named it Pleomorphism, he was a doctor and I asked if he had any interesting medical or scientific words I could name a future EP, at that stage I hadn’t even intended on writing songs about the experience with him, but as the relationship progressed & inevitably fell apart, inspiration followed” she says. “Pleomorphism is the ability of some micro-organisms to alter their shape or size in response to environmental conditions, I guess it fitted as I changed in response to what happened, maybe not in shape or size, but I was actually happy for the first time in my life.”
Taking out triple j Unearthed’s remix competition for her rework of Hermitude’s ‘Ukiyo’ in 2015, Ok Sure has kept busy since her debut Anamnesis EP with a spate of impressive remixes for the likes of Lupa J, King IV, Habits, Porsches, Passerine and Sophie Lowe. On Pleomorphism the talented Melbourne producer returns to her original flare – a kinetic combination of dark, moody and melodic music designed for dance floors.
Pleomorphism is released independently on February 2 with single ‘Nightshade’ OUT NOW.
PRAISE FOR OK SURE
” This DJ and producer has us in the palm of her hand. Her music is like nothing else on the scene today and her flavour is just too refreshing to scrimp on.”
“There’s an attractive moodiness to much of Ok Sure’s output”
” Ok Sure is not one for pigeonholing.”
