Single review: Wuh Oh – ‘Softstyle’

If you’re dreaming of being poolside or eagerly awaiting the re-opening of the clubs this summer, Wuh Oh’s ‘Softstyle’ could be just what you need to bring those vibes to wherever you are.

The Glasgow-based composer, producer, and performer’s new single is a futuristic electro-dance track with Chemical Brothersesque vocals, bright piano and soaring synths you’ll want on repeat for days. The University of Glasgow alumnus’ newest offering has been championed by Vic Galloway and Pete Tong, and is the perfect ‘in’ to explore his experimental back catalogue, including ‘Zita’, released in April this year.

With ‘Softstyle’’s catchy lyrics and bass drop, it’s easy to imagine yourself dancing along in a crowd somewhere sunny. While that may not be possible this year, the single sounds just as good played loud in the kitchen or the car.

2020 was set to be a big year of live shows for Wuh Oh, already known for his high-energy sets, with performances scheduled at Glastonbury, Wireless, and Reading & Leeds among others. Due to the current situation some have been postponed, but he’s definitely one to watch at future festivals.

‘Softstyle’ is out now.
