EP Review: Abyssopelagic – Oloff

When Oloff Johnson – or simply known as OLOFF– slipped me his EP ‘Abyssopelagic’ earlier last month, he mentioned that the latest body of work was a mixture of genres – from straight up hip-hop to the ambient and the experimental. Boy, he’s definitely not wrong there.

As the mini set kicks off with an upbeat, 808 state inspired number, ‘Doing It Stealthy’ – featured on NEW LEASE MUSIC last month – it suddenly flips, going through floaty/spaced out soundscapes which, no doubt, puts you in a hypnotic state within seconds. The young wordsmith’s contrasting wayward flow punches through the atmospheric arrangements, adding a unique vibrancy.

I have to say ‘Abyssopelagic’ EP is an acquired taste. Test it out below:

Song of the Day: Doing It Stealthy – Oloff

Coming from his latest EP ‘Abyssopelagic’, released earlier this month, OLOFF drops his uptempo offering entitled ‘Doing It Stealthy.’

The accompanied video features the Bristolian working the stage, while slamming his wayward but satisfying flow over State 808-esque bars.

The EP itself features a mix of genres, ranging from hip-hop to ambient/experimental, where he plans to release each one as a single. Take time out and check out ‘Abyssopelagic‘ here.
