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!
