Release Bio:
A mix of cultural bite, androgynous aesthetic, and a wildly impressive musical faculty combine to make Flint, MI's Tunde Olaniran one of the more captivating American musicians putting his stamp on today's artistic landscape. Having lived various portions of his life in Nigeria, Germany, England and the United States, his unique take on Afrofuturism seamlessly blends the progressive ideals of pioneers such as Sun Ra and George Clinton with a modern production style all his own. Frenetic trap beats, soaring vocal prowess and playfully conscious verses all combine for a stunning end-product: an output that is as entertaining as it is enlightened.

His magnetic presence as a performer as well as songwriter has garnered him accolades as an "avant-garde genius" (MTV) and an artist who "stands out amongst a crowd of hip-hip, electro and indie scenes" (Examiner), leading to the release of some of his most in-depth and provocative work yet.
