Heavy, relentless rhythm is Oolacile
's bread and butter. The sound designer/DJ (SoCal native Cooper Medearis) may be young, but he's already carved out his own dark dubstep niche in a few short years. A certain level of darkness is expected from a producer who takes his name from a lost, cursed land in the video game Dark Souls. Experimenting is the key to Oolacile's signature bass music: crunching and distorting until a once-simple sound until it evolves into an aggressive earworm. Evolving is just what Oolacile is good at - while he's constantly crafting new heavy treats for your ears, he also embraces the melodic side of EDM. And, unlike many dubstep auteurs, doesn't balk at using the word riddim - as his track "riddim girl" proves. But don't call Oolacile a riddim artist - he's much more than that. Somehow he blends the harsher, more repetitive riddim sounds with something completely different. His newest releases harken back to old school happy hardcore, catchy enough to get the dancefloor moving at a clip. While his sound is hard to pin down, one thing is certain: Oolacile is one of the more interesting producers touring now, and you won't want to miss him doing his thing.
