Opolopo might not be a name that you’ve come across before, in fact we hadn’t heard of this mysterious disco producer until last year – when his 2015 album ‘Superconductor’ was recommended to us.
His name apparently is Yoruban for “plenty”, a word that perfect encapsulates the diversity of his productions. There’s plenty to like about Opolopo’s varied output, which ranges from house, funk and future soul to broken beat, balearic and rare groove.
His latest remix is a case in point; a perfect blend of old and new, as the original’s blend of soulful vocals and hip hop rhymes are slathered in fuzzy basslines, clacking percussion and plenty of funked-up instrumentation.
Opolopo’s ‘Elixir’ remix is the first out of a series of remixes of Susanne Alt’s latest album ‘Saxify’.
