Oddisee/Damu the Fudgemunk
Each track was produced while Oddisee stayed in the city it was titled after. The result is a 24 city sonic tour of the world.
Crunchy drums bolster intricately woven narratives of soul-infused samples in compositions that thump and groove all at the same time. Horns appear from nowhere before dissolving sumptuously into the mix. Layers are steadily unveiled only to gradually fold back in on themselves.
All-time favorite beat tapes. Some people turn plastic soda bottles into islands, others morph their record collections into beats.
