PD PRESENTS: TUNDE OLANIRAN LIVE AT UNION POOL IN BROOKLYN WITH QUINCY VIDAL AND OLIVER DUNCAN
We are pleased to showcase Tunde Olaniran, repping Detroit and his hometown of Flint, Michigan in Brooklyn this week. We are not the only one’s excited about this up-and-coming musician, The New York Times recently profiled Olaniran:
Tunde Olaniran, a rapper from Flint, Mich., starts his five-song EP “Yung Archetype” (Quite Scientific) singing, “Trying to figure out who I am, what to be.” That doesn’t mean he plans to narrow anything down. Mr. Olaniran can rap in various distinct voices. He can also sing in an agile R&B tenor and falsetto, supplying his own melodic choruses. Meanwhile, his productions are a deluge of ideas: backup vocals high and low and sampled, the ratcheting drum machines of trap, unearthly electronic throbs and swoops, and plenty of stray squeaks, sputters, crackles and what might well be a jaw harp. When he’s not juggling expectations about himself (in the assertive “Brown Boy” and the self-questioning “Critical”) or getting self-conscious about courting clicks online (“The Internet”), he takes on the entire 21st-century economy in “The Highway.” With just a handful of EPs, Mr. Olaniran has already figured out quite a bit.” –New York Times
Don’t miss him perform!
