Oisin McLaughlin, aka ‘Ois Bois,’ from Muff has been billed as ‘Ireland’s answer to Calvin Harris’ and is a familiar face and sound to local dance music fans.

His latest single, ‘Cover It Up’ was released last weekend and has received air play on radio stations including iRadio and Cool Fm.

While Ois Bosh has released a number of tracks, ‘Cover it Up’ is his second original single and is described as a ‘house dance mix with vibes resonant of Irish producer Jay Pryor.’

He told the Journal: “I incorporated some piano vibes on the track as the piano is big in my family, I am excited to hear what people think of it, I think it is my best work to date.”

Last year was incredible for Ois Bosh, a regular in local venues in the north west.

He got the opportunity to play some of Ireland’s biggest festivals and venues with the likes of numerous appearances at Electric Picnic and Dublin’s premier venue, the 3Arena last Summer, which were both ‘an appearance of a lifetime” according to Bosh.

He also closed out the popular OTB (Out the Back) Festival held in Buncrana.

Ois said he never tires of hearing his tracks on the radio. “It’s class to hear it. You get some buzz out of it.”

He began dj-ing four years ago but has always had a strong interest in all types of music.

“My family is all into music - mammy is a piano teacher and I thought I’d maybe trying dj-ing. I took gigs everywhere I could to try and build up the brand and it’s going very well.”

While Covid 19 has halted live gigs, Ois is using the time to work on new tracks and create an even bigger profile.

A big fan of Calvin Harris and modern dance music, he hopes to really break into the international dj scene in the future.

“I am in negotiations with some of Ireland’s biggest promoters to bring my set to bigger festivals and bigger audiences once COVID 19 settles down.

I am very excited about the future and determined to get my music out there.”

He added: “Cover it Up is really catchy and I hope people like it and download it.”

Ois outlined how he is very grateful for the support he has received, as well as the downloads for his previous singles.

“Cover It Up” is available to download and to stream on all major music platforms.
