Sonic Academy proudly welcomes brand new tutor Michael Oakley this week for an all-new, much in demand synthwave course.
Hailing from Glasgow and signed to NewRetroWave Records, his albums California (2017) and Introspect (2019) have gained huge critical acclaim and in this track walkthrough we get an in-depth look at his track 'Control' which features on his latest album.
