Yung Dave Gorgeously stunning debut EP from new producer Odeko. Citing multiple influences from "electronic experiments by James Blake or Oneohtrix Point Never" (Fact Mag) and "Auxiliary and Autonomic", his music fits in Mr. Mitch's increasingly experimental Gobstopper label. Similar to his Silk Road Assassins cohorts. Odeko combines grime, trap, and Japanese influences but creates lovely melodies instead of menacing dystopian aesthetics.

Yeah, it's pretty close to Chief Keef, grime, and anime.

Nic Brown Mr Mitch's increasingly experimental Gobstopper imprint has taken what Simon Reynolds (I suspect rather pejoratively) refers to as 'nu-grime' to the very perimeter of the genre and exciting new signing Odeko travels yet further out with this quite exceptional EP. "A History With Samus" is a Neptunian moonscape away from the earthbound boing of what instrumental grime at its laziest can be and I'm utterly captivated. By the by, I've also heard Mr Reynolds is a (and proud of it) Skrillex fan - how the fuck does he square that and his disdain for artists like Yamaneko with his campaign to eradicate the scourge of retroism from music? If it's the future you want, inject some Odeko into your veins. Favorite track: The Yumato Spring.

Mr. Mitch's Gobstopper Records follows Loom's 'European Heartache' with GOB019, a debut release by rising producer Odeko.

Influences on the Welsh producer's 'A History With Samus' EP are rooted in 21st century - and beyond - communication and evolution: "At the time of writing the EP, I was exploring my interest into humanity's developing obsession with technological integration, the process of creating synthetic life, virtual realities and environments and the potential future of companionship between human and AI."

Fact Magazine profiled Odeko among 10 grime producers to watch in 2016 writing "What we’ve heard hints at an expansive approach exploring the hidden connections between Rapid at his most lovelorn and electronic experiments by James Blake or Oneohtrix Point Never....He’s got a ton of potential to add nuance and shading to the label’s emotional grime deconstructions, and the outside influences carry a welcome influx of new ideas at a time when the genre can feel a bit self-referential. Trust us on this one."
