We’re thrilled to welcome back Montreal’s OJPB (aka Bowly) to Lazy Days following his brilliant 2018 Lucy’s Stomp EP. OJPB’s music has a very singular poetic voice, equally influenced by Detroit, Chicago and early UK Grime/2-Step Garage as well as taking inspiration from french cinéma and littérature. As a DJ, OJPB became a firm favorite on the Montreal local scene with his unique eclectic style ranging from Techno, House, Disco and Breaks. Recently, he played at 24 Hours of Vinyl, Pik Nic Electronik for the 15 Years of Lazy Days and has a forthcoming Mutek set in a few weeks.
The EP opens with Théodore Le Fou, a dreamy cinematic Deep House number that also features an obligatory remix by Fred Everything. Phonétik digs deeper into his UK influences with tight drum programming, cut up sampled vocals and those lovely strings. Ottomatik closes the EP in style with a broken beat rhythm, strings and rhodes melodies.
We hope you enjoy this EP as much as we do.
