Olugbenga - ‘Olu’s Omniverse: We Don’ Catch Am’
“Olu's Omniverse began life as a showreel for an imaginary radio show, one that was based around underground music from all over the world“.
The Nigerian electronic music producer shared the origin of his project which started almost 10 years ago. He posted on Soundcloud: “Olu's Omniverse began life as a showreel for an imaginary radio show, one that was based around underground music from all over the world“.
“It came from my frustration with the term 'world music' and all the amazing, vibrant music that was often left out of that categorisation because it didn't sound 'indigenous' enough”, he added.
Olugbenga who is currently based in London is also a DJ and a songwriter.
