Oddisee – Traveling Man

The break-neck pace at which Oddisee churns out material is unreal.  And coincidentally, his production make you wanna break your neck as well.  For all you beat junkies out there who recognize how dope Oddisee is with the instrumentation, Traveling Man is the perfect project to own.   And it’s a pretty fly concept if you ask me.  A great combination of ever-changing sceneries and a determined work ethic.  Here’s a perfect description of what this is all about:

As a musician, life is often lived on the road. Each city leaves its imprint on the artist as they develop their craft. Touring, recording, and keeping up with friends and family took Oddisee beyond his hometown of Washington DC to Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. From cities like East Africa’s Khartoum in Sudan, to cosmopolitan jaunts like Paris & Tokyo. The influence of these travels can be heard on every one of the 24 tracks included on Traveling Man.   Each track was produced while Oddisee stayed in the city it was titled after. The result is a 24-city sonic tour of the world. Oddisee sees the world, so that you can hear it.

Oddisee is my favorite producer right now, along with some of my people. His drums are tight, and his music feels right.
