2018 Rewind: Okzharp

Okzharp & Manthe Ribane

How was 2018 for you?

Okzharp: It was zuper zharp.


Manthe Ribane and I released our album, Closer Apart, and we launched it at Hyperdub’s Ø night in London. We also screened our film Closer/Apart film that we made with Chris Saunders and did an installation with Jonathan Freemantle. Another highlight was our first USA tour, especially the show in NYC at National Sawdust.


Sometimes, yes.

Song of the year?
