With delicate dancing melodies and exotic imaginings Adelaide’s Oisima has found a global audience with his emotionally connective, original productions.
From his debut EP “Dusk Till Dawn” to his semi-regular mix tapes “Jewels of Thought” his follow up “Goddess” EP & full length “Nicaragua Nights” Oisima, the moniker of Anth Wendt, has created his own palate of sonic colours – a finely tuned blend of contemporary soul, mixing Middle Eastern influences with a rich background in Jazz and a love for blues and bass, Oisima crafts his own intangible universe of startling sounds.
From regularly selling-out his club night shows to playing on some of the countries biggest stages; an acclaimed spot on the Splendour In The Grass Redbull Music Stage, Big Day Out, and Adelaide’s WOMAD Festival as well as touring nationally with the likes of Bonobo & St Germain and supporting the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Shigeto and Knxwledge.
His new TDR album ‘Deeper Waters’ sees the artist exploring his expansive sound through the palette of a full live band & orchestration, due for release in February leading up to his performance at WOMADelaide festival with his live 13-piece orchestra.
Oisima interprets and lifts his distinctive music from a headphone and immersive experience to a dance floor enticing performance. Pulling out bass lines and deftly manoeuvring melodies on a MPC, his remarkable productions translate perfectly to a sunlit-stage or a basement club sound system.
