Odali shares his new EP titled ‘Play At The Park’.
Odali is fresh off theÂ visual release of the lead-single ‘Yemenites‘. Crafted by the Queens bredÂ OdaliÂ and produced by the Swedish-bornÂ LGHTHD, ‘Play At The Park’Â supplies a refreshing sound to the contemporary Hip-Hop landscape. As summer comes into a full groove, the park plays an essential part-pun intended, or maybe it use to for my generation. Generation Y, or as the baby-boomers would say ‘millenials’, is the last generation to generally be outside. Specifically, at the park, and as technology has consumed our lives, parks have become abandoned with streets deserted.
Play At The ParkÂ is my reflection of my days as a youth roaming the streets up to no good. It was a great release of built-up emotions and energy. It was not until writing this project that I realized how much my adolescence had an effect on me today, and built me up to the man I am now becoming. Not only that, but the fact that 100% of the production fromÂ LGHTHDÂ was created between 2008-2010 in Sweden made it that much more compelling. Additionally, the excellent contributions fromÂ Celia InsideÂ andÂ StarkerÂ was like adding the cherry on top.Â
WhileÂ LGHTHDÂ was studying the sounds of J. Dilla and DJ Premier, I was studying the rhyme compositions of Nas and Prodigy. A pure demonstration of the awe-inspiring power of Hip-Hop. We met this past winter via some mutual friends and it instantly clicked.
