Dopamine presents: ODDISEE / OLIVIER DAYSOUL
Written by Admin on March 5, 2013
Dopamine Presents is bringing you a very exclusive and intimate Sunday Session at Rakino’s. ODDISEE (USA) & OLIVIER DAYSOUL (UK) will be joining us for the Sunday Family Roast on Sunday March 17th, alongside The Means (Live), DJs Lo Key & Gregg Harper and MC’s J.Double & Dames Brown. Your ticket will include a humble roast prepared by The Rakinos Kitchen, Asahi on entry and a copy of Oddisee’s ‘People Hear What They See’ EP. There are very limited tickets available only from undertheradar.co.nz.
Oddisee is an MC/producer from Washington DC and he makes his return visit to NZ. His debut solo album “People Hear What They See” was released on 12th June 2012. Though Oddisee has gone on to perform with The Roots, produce for Freeway, Jazzy Jeff, Little Brother, De La Soul & Nikki Jean, and has MC’d on production from Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke and Kev Brown, his proudest moment was the birth of his critically acclaimed group The Diamond District with fellow Washingtonians X.O. and yU.
Known in the music industry for his independence, Oddisee consistently debunks the scatterbrained artist myth – doing everything from booking international tours to photography to marketing and promoting himself and even other artists. He now works as both artist and consultant withMello Music Group, one of the foremost emerging independent labels to take advantage of the digital revolution to build a successful business.
Oliver Daysoul / Oliver St. Louis is a Singer/Songwritter/Producer/Musician. He has worked with Oddisee, Eric Lau, Onra, Sola Rosa, Hudson Mohawke, Sepalot, Heralds Of Change (Hud Mo & Mike Slott) and more. His smooth vocal style is reminiscent of Omar (UK) and Phonte of Little Brother/The Foreign Exchange.
Check out the opening track from Sola Rosa’s “Low & Beyold, High & Beyond” album and the accompanying video.
