Watch List: OIJ Is Bound To Have You 'Blinded'
Amsterdam based singer and producer Valentijn Crouwel, AKA OIJ, released his debut track Blinded this summer, which quickly bounced into 8th place on the Spotify Global Viral Charts. Incase you missed it, check it out on Soundcloud or Youtube below; his mix of synth-pop and electro-indie provides us with this catchy dance track that slots perfectly into the euro-nightclub scene. Surprisingly, OIJ only began making music in 2014, however he has already been recognized as ‘3FM Serious Talent' by Dutch radio station 3FM which saw his reputation in the Netherlands rocket. Blinded is accompanied by a abstract music video inspired by japanese culture - in-fact, OIJ stands for "Only in Japan" - and his upcoming EP, co-written by Thijs van der Klugt (Baskerville), Sebastian Duthil (CUT_), Marnix Dorrestein (IX) and Tom Meijer (A Polaroid View) should be awaited with anticipation.
