The producer, who lives in the waters of trendy electronic genres, first drew important attention to himself in 2011 with his Ain't a Dream (rx:tx) EP. This year he took his remarkable visions of bass music another step further with his album High Tide, which was also published by the leading Slovene publisher of electronic music – rx:tx; even the BBC and the XLR8R magazine took notice. The album was created on the coast of Costa Rica; Oknai currently lives and creates in Berlin, and is undeniably one of the most prolific and interesting Slovene producers.

The noisy trio's live performances are like a real beast and never leave you disappointed. Their garage sounds, noise elements and even the dreamy parts, which shape the band's dynamics, are only a tiny part of the sound mosaic they recorded in three full length albums. The current, last year's album Golden Men (Moonlee Records/ZARŠ) presents the band at their most mature stage, to which they came through regular tours that also brought them to Britain, even though their most faithful fan base outside Slovenia is in the Czech Republic. Nikki Louder is definitely a band best consumed live, because their performances are short explosive bursts of rage, energy and joy.

The audio-visual collective have not given us a studio recording yet, but they are tireless performers, who time and again convince with new discoveries. The performances themselves are a testament to the creativity of the band, who explore the sounds of current electronic production and serve them in their singular stage format. DJs Felis Catus and Softskinson turn into a band; the former becomes a singer, DJ and music controller, the latter becomes a drummer. The artist Mina Fina adds the visual note and constructs colorful visual pieces, which usually cover the entire stage, creating a hypnotic ambience. This young trio is definitely worth paying attention to.
