Ookay made something amazing. A track so appropriately titled ‘thief,’ because it has already stole my heart, pulling on the strings still connected to my chest, as he is on his way to steal your girl. Don’t let her hear this track.
This track is all feels. Abe Laguna, pouring out his soul and creative spirit. Quite a change of pace for this internet troll who does not lack for talent, but is always sort of being silly about it. Over the past few years, Ookay has grown and evolved as an artist and a person it seems. The development of this ‘Thief’ was quite the creative project, a track that will ultimately establish Ookay as not only a producer or DJ, but also a singer/songwriter. He combines these skill sets, and the result is a gut wrenchingly elegant track that reveals an artist deeper and more soulful than maybe you had originally imagined.
I especially like the effect he uses on his vocals, echoing and stretching his own voice so that it could harmonize with itself. As I was listening the other day, getting a bit lost in the music, thinking about how all those voices were singing to themselves, and how he basically made himself a ghost, this phantom voice that tickles your insides, and you wonder how it is moving through you with such ease. Out loud to my roommate, I said, “It is like he is a ghost.”
I was thinking about an old EP of his I wrote up, when I hear the lyric, “I am just a selfish ghost.” It was just one of those moments where I was so connected to the music. This track shows asofter, more serious side of Ookay, bound to make the ladies swoon (even more than they already do). Most importantly, he should be proud of this piece of art he created.
It is truly and simply breathtaking.
Ookay has really made something amazing here. Peep It.
