Adriaan de Roover

Adriaan de Roover

Adriaan de Roover (fka Oaktree) brings moody, textural and enchanting electronic music. Adriaan just released his first full-length album in 2019 though his own imprint. Grainy soundscapes flow smoothly together with rippling breakbeats. Dystopian rhythms vanish into horizontal noise. An ancient procession in the dark, guided only by touch.

A musical trip for fans of Fennesz, Daniel Lanois, Nicolas Jaar & Four Tet.

In the past years, de Roover played in different live setups at different places including Pukkelpop, Gent Jazz, Ancienne Belgique (artist in residence), Paradiso (NL), Effenaar (NL), Waking Life (PT), Stuk, Eurosonic, Museum M, Het Bos, Paradise City, Novus (UK) … The Antwerp based artist released music through PIAS and Fog Mountain (including a compilation featuring Fis and Roly Porter) and his own imprint: Leaves. His music gained support from BBC6, Klara, Studio Brussel, Clash, Groove, Ransom Note, Mary Anne Hobbs, Lefto, Bonobo …

Apart from that he has been working on sound for installations, dance performances and documentaries.
