Ohrwurm presents Osunlade

Osunlade is a living legend. To date he is credited with over 20 albums, the founding of Yoruba Records, and has worked with the likes of Freddie Jackson, Patti Labelle and Toni Basil; few would deny that he has an imposing, illustrious career as a constant champion of the soul within electronic music. For most of his life he’s been making and mixing music, displaying a deftness for diverse genres from ancestral afro-jazz to dance funk and Latin pop. Still, he’s most at home with deep house – as an ordained priest of Ifá, his soulful, spiritual sound lends a much-needed sense of depth and meaning to the realm of dance music. 2014’s ‘Atonement’, his latest album mix, sidelines his African, otherworldly signature for a more European electronic flavour; dark and modern, it’s carefully curated, sometimes sparse but always seamless. This is an artiste who lives for the art of music. Supporting acts include Alam, with others to be confirmed at a later date.
