Imants started his journey in 2010 when he mainly played in Riga’s old town clubs, pubs, and bars where he was experimenting and exploring various genres and styles.
In the winter of 2016, he happened to go to Norway’s alps where he met few local DJ artists. Under their influence, he discovered and developed a passion for the Ethno-Electronica, Slow-Disco and World Class Music.
Once returned back to his home-town, he graduated from the Rīga’s DJ School and begun his career under the stage name Oaksmith.
Right now Oaksmith is one of few people responsible for bringing the African and other ethnic influenced electronic music to the local crowd selecting tracks from genres like Afro-House, Tribal Techno and Gqom.
