It's so Sunny, baby.
This project has been a long time coming. Initially inspired by Nujabes, J Dilla, and Ta-Ku, Oliver Rodley set out to produce his vision of lo fi hip hop music. A prolific keyboard player, producer, recording artist, DJ, music programmer, and studio engineer, Rodley is an electrical engineering graduate of both the University of Texas, Austin (B.S.) and the University of California, Berkeley (M.S.E.E.). Oliver's dad had an insatiable appetite for jazz, so his childhood was spent listening to a wave of soul jazz, propelled by artists such as Cannonball Adderly, Stanley Turrentine, Gene ‘Jug’ Ammons, and Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers.
Rodley cites a wide range of influences from the 70s jazz funk of Herbie Hancock, the unadulterated funk of P-funk, to current electronic artists Jon Hopkins, Max Cooper, and Thom Yorke. He cites the electronic minimalist composers Ólafur Arnolds and Max Richter as influences on his most recent work. He is also inspired by the musical artistry of Nujabes, Ta-Ku, J-Dilla, Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, DJ Shadow, Lupe Fiasco, and Madlib, amongst others.
Love and lust can be intoxicating...and fleeting.
