Marylou Mayniel – aka Oklou – is a French producer, vocalist and composer currently based in London.
She grew up in the countryside of west France, and was first exposed to music through a classical education for piano and cello. She subsequently learnt to produce electronic music on her computer, discovering a new digital world of artists fusing visceral production with their own unique voices.
Moving to Paris three years ago, she founded her radio/DJ crew, TGAF, and began performing her first live shows under the name Oklou. A series of online releases, mixtapes, collaborations, live shows and DJ sets have established her as a key part of the new European electronic underground scene.
