Oddisee & Good Compny – Hold It Back (Live) [Audio x Download]

Following the release of his trenchant, celebrated LP “The Iceberg” in winter of 2017, prolific MC/producer Oddisee and his band GoodCOMPNY embarked on a massive international tour that continues through the end of the year – they have played close to 100 shows already. While on this extensive initial international run between March and May, live recordings were made of songs from “The Iceberg” and from his extensive catalog, and will be released as Oddisee’s first-ever live album November 10th, titled “Beneath The Surface” (Mello Music Group). Oddisee and his deeply funky, muscular band flex through highlights from “The Iceberg” including the Go-go pocket of “NNGE”, the incensed “Like Really”, and his mission statement for the album, the plea for understanding that is “Things”. The album showcases an MC and his band charging through songs with an important message and having a blast on stage at the same time. Non-2The Iceberg” tracks include “Lifting Shadows” and “Strength and Weakness” from his 2016 “Alwasta” EP, “That’s Love” from “The Good Fight” and “You Know Who You Are” from “People Hear What They See”.

L’Orange feat. Oddisee – Look Around [Audio x Download]

After a trying battle with hearing loss and a number of surgeries, producer L’Orange preps his new album “The Ordinary Man” (out October 27th on Mello Music Group), a concept album about a superstar magician disillusioned with the world that made his greatness. Now fully deaf in one ear, this album marks a shift and growth for L’Orange towards an even tighter and developed sound while maintaining his sample-heavy knack for finding the essence of his influences in every beat. The first single from the album is a landmark collaboration for Mello Music Group, combining for the first time two of the most prolific and talented artists on the roster: L’Orange & Oddisee. The new song, “Look Around (feat. Oddisee)” is a perfect marriage of styles. Musically, it’s an adventurous exploration of traditional and unorthodox approaches. Stream and download “Look Around” below. The Ordinary Man by L'Orange

Oddisee – The Iceberg [Album Stream]

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee’s new album ‘The Iceberg’ is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, ‘The Iceberg’ is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick r&b and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement. ‘The Iceberg’ is out February 24 on Mello Music Group. Lead single “Things” acts as a mission statement for the album, a deep dance groove with lightning-quick lyrics about “things” he’s going through. Says Oddisee, “”We all go through the trials & tribulations of life. Why is it we feel the need to individualize our shared experiences? If only we could see our concerns as others do, maybe they wouldn’t be so serious.” The Iceberg by Oddisee

Oddisee feat. Toine – NNGE [Audio x Download]

Oddisee is back with a new cut from his new LP, “The Iceberg”, due out February 24th. Pre-order here. Says Oddisee: “Called ‘NNGE (Never Not Getting Enough)’, the track is trenchant and timely – a complex song about trying to stay positive in the face of adversity and its many forms. The track is propelled by a fiery, swift drum beat and deeply soulful chorus. I grew up witnessing many protests come to Washington DC. This song continues that tradition by using words of encouragement over production inspired by the native sounds of DC music.” Stream or download “NNGE” below. The Iceberg by Oddisee
