When we sat down with Oscar, we asked how this mix represent him as an artist, to which he said “I always try to keep classic house sounds in my music… as an act of loyalty to house music and just to keep real, this mix is just me loving house music.”
He went on to explain what the House Gangster movement meant to him, “House Gangster is a space where we can find and share the real sound of house music without disposable trends. It’s one of the big works to promote and spread the house essence. I look at House Gangster as a kind of revolution.”
