The time has come friends, an invitation to Planet Oasis is here.
The long awaited new studio record from Maitland’s Just A Gent arrives on April 21st and as the countdown to release day enters its final stretch, the acclaimed producer and DJ has announced East Coast tour dates to celebrate.
Across four dates in June and July, Just A Gent will be bringing Planet Oasis to life, with special guest Solomon France (FKA SØL) supporting at each show, with local supports to be announced.
The tour will be the first time Just A Gent has been able to bring such a conceptualised record into the live arena. Planet Oasis, a five year process that has culminated in some of Just A Gent’s strongest and most cohesive music to date, has spawned some incredible music and to think about how it will be realised at live shows?
Fans have every right to be excited.
“Planet Oasis, the dream utopia. A brand new show, a brand new vision and a newfound love for artistry and the power it can possess. Years in the making, Planet Oasis is a collection of sounds that pushes the boundaries of sonics to create an undefinable experience that will leave you questioning what is possible and what we can achieve.”
JUST A GENT
Over the last year, Just A Gent has been laying the foundation for Planet Oasis, releasing a string of popular singles highlighting some incredible collaborations with artists including Greta Stanley (‘Sleeptalking’), Arno Faraji (‘Who Would Have Thought’), Sammi Constantine (‘Trip To Mars’) and most recently on lead single ‘Don’t Wait For Me’ (featuring Lani Rose).
“I put everything I have into this record. I collaborated with my favourite creatives to bring it together. I hope it inspires you to do more and I hope that together we can build an even better world for the next generations. An oasis, Planet Oasis.”
JUST A GENT
Planet Oasis represents the natural evolution of Just A Gent as a producer, yes, but it also marks a turning point for him as a creative. With a career that has already racked up over 200 million streams, Just A Gent has never taken a moment to rest on his laurels. Instead, he has been driven by the desire to keep chasing a new sound. Planet Oasis, with its sonic weaves, and ‘Don’t Wait For Me’ arriving as its latest turn, is the culmination of ambition meeting challenges, resulting in a defining final product.
