I don't need more proof to add Oddisee in my favourite new discoveries. Drawing inspirations from notorious acts like The Roots, De La Soul, Flying Lotus and a grain of 90's vibe, this dude is an absolutely hip hop / funky machine.

If you value good music and care little to no genres, his upcoming album The Good Fight will definitely be in your playlists. Why? Well, I think "That's Love" speaks for itself...

Everything from the rhymes to production and then the live instrumental is purely mind-blowing. It made me wanna grab my sticks and run to the studio, because - I mean, c'mon... that beat?

"It’s is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism… It’s about not selling out and shilling for a paycheck, while still being aware that this is a business requiring compromise and collaboration."

The record will be out on May 4th via Mellow Music Group. We really need more music like that.
