With an innovative sound that embodies darkness and grit through lush instrumentation, OddKidOut makes music for the underdog. Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the 27-year-old multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer has spent most of his life behind a drum kit, performing in a multitude of touring bands by the young age of 13. Having eventually swapped the drum kit for a finger drum controller and Ableton while still in his formative teenage years, OddKidOut’s unique brand of live, melancholy bass music was born.
The 2017 release of OddKidOut’s breakthrough OWSLA EP Solstice cemented him as a standout within the electronic music scene, garnering high praise from all corners of the industry. Since then, OddKidOut has released on some of dance music’s most exciting labels including BASSRUSH, Fool’s Gold, and Monstercat, where his single “Cinema” went on to become the title track for popular video game Rocket League. Now, the breakout artist looks to the future with his classic finger drummed, bass-infused soundscapes set to grace **** Records.
OddKidOut is the amalgamation of his many influences, from metal to hip-hop to ambient, who’s fusing his penchant for percussion with moody electronic flare to create a sound uniquely his own. Ready to take on concert and festival stages across the globe with his high-energy live show, OddKidOut’s story is only just beginning.
