17.02.2015 Oddhoody Volume 01 released

Today sees the release of the first in a series of stripped-down instrumental hip-hop EPs as alter-ego Oddhoody – Oddhoody volume 01.

All tracks began as sketches written using iMaschine while riding the Oslo Underground, and feature sounds recorded at the time. Work on volume 02 is already underway, with the release date set to sometime before April.

White lies for ears and eyes

It began with a Casio CTK-750, the unquantised techno and electronica making the jump to a Playstation® running Music a few years later. With the PS1, I started sampling crap synths, acoustic guitar and posting tracks on-line. People thought I was a band, and with the PS1 corrupting all the songs, 'Implosion Quintet' seemed suitable. IQ morphed into the ADHD 'genre-slam' material that centred on breaking through all stylistic barriers.

In 2014 I started 'Oddhoody', a full-circle return to the hip hop, dub and electro I began with. OH takes iMaschine sketches (often written on the Oslo underground) and pulls them into a decayed aesthetic. Fat, urban electronics with a hefty nod to the giant dub sound-systems of yore.
