OKA Collective


Read the OKA Collective Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hi, my name is Jeremiah and I am the founder of a group called OKA Collective. We are based out of Brisbane, Australia and have artists and creatives all over the world. I started this collective to give local beatmakers and DJ's a platform to share what they had as well as put on shows to play the music we wanted to play and not what a club or bar expected us to play (which is fine, but not always).


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My influences came from my older sister and brothers who all had seperate tastes in music, i think me being the youngest of the family this helped diversify my music taste growing up. I remember really being into Nelly, Ja Rule, 50 Cent and artists like that when i was about 8-9 and when I was in high school it slowly transformed into a bit more EDM and electronic music. During that phase, I had started searching blogs and Soundcloud was growing into a great platform for new music that i had never heard of or would have thought to listen to. I had found a mix by Esta. that he did for SSENSE and that was when i first heard Kaytranada, Lakim, Falcons and the whole Soulection gang and a lot of people who have influenced me to make the collective and the music that I make and play today. I also had a bit of a phase with Emo/Screamo music as well in high school, but who didn't.


What´s new right now?


I'm currently compiling tracks for our next compilation 003 which will be out in April on Soundcloud. We are always playing gigs in our local city Brisbane, however one of our earliest artists Chromonicci is performing with the Night Owl collective at SXSW in Austin on the 16th of March and also opening for Joe Kay on the Houston stop of his Soulection Radio tour on the 23rd of March, which is crazy to see as Soulection are a massive reason i started OKA in the first place. Shout out to Christian, love you dude.

How do you personally discover new music?


going to watch other friends Dj is a great way i find, especially if you know them well enough to peak at their setlist, otherwise its youtube, soundcloud and spotify always playing in the background.
