The Oleee EP is the latest work of Ghanaian-Austrian singer Anbuley. It blends modern, eclectic dance music with Ghanaian tradition. Acknowledging her roots Anbuley exclusively sings in Ga, one of the many languages spoken in Ghana. The three tracks on this EP are produced by Viennese producer and label owner Florian Richling (Tipanic). The instrumentals combine organic beats, energetic electronic sounds, catchy melodies and clubby basslines. They fuse straight European dancefloor-pragmatism with playful African rhythms inspired by Angolan Kuduro and South African Kwaito.
The title track Oleee deals with the relief and the positive energy, after being unhappily in love, to accept, finish and start a new life. Tokota is a track about a big passion of Anbuley: high heels. The chorus line imitates the sound of heels hitting the floor while dancing. S3k3 describes how everyone has his crazy moments in life and reminds us to be patient with others who we think are crazy.

Anbuley was born in Vienna to Ghanaian parents, lived in Ghana from age 4 to 9, and in Vienna since then. She sees herself both fully as Ghanaian and European, no compromises, an African girl who can also talk some serious Viennese slang. Her look at European culture is one from close range, but she has never lost touch with Ghanaian culture and her heritage. Her African influence is just as contemporary with no hint of nostalgia or melancholy. This finds expression in her music: an amalgam of influences making you dance no matter where you're from.
