To ensure the filthiest of JUNGLE beats, The Rizo has been searching for weeks to bring you a very special guest...
we went all the way to the OG Jungle, the KONKRETE JUNGLE of NYC to bring you: The legendary DJ and Producer: DJ ODI
Now if you’re asking yourself “who is DJ Odi?”, heres a friendly lesson....
Dj Odi is in great part responsible for the entire style of jungle music in NYC. His performances date back as far as 1989, when the 14 year old Harlem native began performing for various events in his neighborhood. His musical interests took a new turn in 1992, when he began promoting for the NASA parties of New York City. It was at these now-legendary parties that he gained his first residency, and began his career as one of America's most sought after jungle DJs. Odi's talent and ability to please a crowd quickly gained him notoriety. He began touring nationally in 1995; his immaculate sets packed dance floors everywhere with a party vibe that became synonymous with the DJ Odi name.. His creative fusion of hip hop and early drum n bass rapidly gained popularity among DJs and producers, and it was through this fusion that Odi has been credited for the development of "hipstep" (a.k.a. "jump up") jungle. In 97, Odi and his crew formed their own eponymous record label, Digital Konfusion, and began spinning at NYC’s most dedicated weekly jungle show: Konkrete Jungle which is one of the most influential Jungle/Drum&Bass shows in the US. Odi rapidly became a fixture, while continuing to travel the country, one of the first few to enjoy such popularity. His accomplishments as an innovator of urban music were further recognized in 1998, when Odi became the first jungle DJ to ever be accepted into the prestigious Zulu Nation, forever demolishing the barrier between hip hop and drum n bass.
DJ Odi has performed all over the US dropping Drum&Bass, Jungle, and Jump UP beats, currently he is also experimenting in the rich sound of DubStep. While DJ Odi is best known for his live performances, he is also an established producer. His production history goes as far back as 1995, with releases on both BML and the now Defunct Jungle Sky label. Recently, Odi has been working with the Digital Konfusion crew to spearhead their record label and clothing line, as well as running two successful radio shows on http://www.nycjungle.com
