RELEASES NEW SINGLE:
“RIGHT NOW” FEAT. BRIELLE
Featured On Upcoming EP, ‘Algorhythm Vol. 2’ Out Friday, December 8th Via Bastard Jazz
“Osage, a Philadelphia-based artist whose sound speaks to the diversity of the world, makes music that has a range of influences. You can hear them all in “Right Now,” from Caribbean and African rhythms, Bossa Nova to future R&B and electronica and deeper beats.”
Known to most as DJ/producer Lil’Dave, the veteran Philadelphia artist has released under a number of different alias thanks to his remarkable genre versatility. For his latest project the artist is returning under his alter-ego Osage, for a project that is the most eclectic of the bunch fusing deep house, samba, African rhythms, futuristic r&b, boogie, uk garage, salsa, broken beat, and soul.
Releasing a full-length EP titled “Algorhyhtm Vol. 2,” Osage is gearing up to unveil a seven-track project featuring six new tracks and instrumentals, and a remix from Sol Power All-Stars. Coming via Brooklyn label Bastard Jazz on December 8th, today we’re getting our first peek into the project with the release of “Right Now” featuring Brielle. Described by Earmilk as “a magical layering of elements,” “Right Now” is a jazz meets house meets Caribbean music hybrid whose enigmatic performance from Brielle includes both an incredibly catchy vocal top-line and showcases her skills as a flautist.
For Osage, this release represents a continuation of his innovative production approach using slightly unorthodox drum programming, layers of synthesizer, and a focus on bringing the soulfullness out of the machines he is working with. To date, the producer has built an enviable discography including remixes for artists including RJD2, Lady Alma, Ty, Ryat, Captain Planet, Foremost Poets, and more, and originals released via various labels including BBE Records, Tru Thoughts, Record Break-in’ Music, Soulspazm, and First Word Records. He is also a member of the highly respected DJ crew Illvibe Collective and the co-host of the internationally known broadcast Eavesdrop Radio.
