Deep house legend, Osunlade is known by many in the dance community for his deep, afro, latin house. Many, however, are unaware of the fact that Osunlade first got his start in genres outside the dance realm. He has written music for Sesame Street and worked with the likes of Patti Labelle and Roy Ayers. Looking at his past it’s really no surprise that he would return to his soul, jazz, r&b roots with “The Rebirth”. This album proves that he is a far more accomplished musician than many may think of when they think of DJ Osunlade. “The Rebirth” is one of the most well produced albums that has ever come across our table. Full of lush instruments and deep lyrical content, Osunlade wrote and played almost all the instruments himself.
Resident Advisor sat down with Osunlade back in October and this is what he had to say of the new record. “Before I started doing house music, I only did the type of music that’s coming out on this album. This is a personal thing. This is probably the most vulnerable, the closest to my heart that I’ve been creatively.”
Osunlade is working on putting the live show together for 2010. Check him out on Myspace to get updates on his upcoming tour.
