EP Review: Boxed In – Oloff

‘Boxed In’ is the second EP release of the year from Bristol’s groundbreaking spitter OLOFF. In just three tracks, the latest project addresses a mixture of emotions – from depression and wishful longing to a great sense of optimism towards the future.

To represent the feeling of uncertainty, ‘Boxed In’ alternate between subdue and downtempo  soundscapes to an lifting folk/western-esque arrangements, with the dominant presence of OLOFF‘s  awkwardly-smooth delivery.

If you unfamiliar with this guy, well be prepared to listen to the most unconventional combinations; a recipe that’s rapidly making of the most intriguing alternative hip-hop artist of today.

It goes without saying that ‘Boxed In’ is an acquired taste…take your ears to new heights and press play.

After four months releasing his EP Life’s Got You Riveted ( once voted Album of the Week by NEW LEASE MUSIC) OLOFF rounds off the year with his 15-piece album, Staring Into Space, released last month.

The latest project predominantly includes three-minute bursts of his old instrumental recordings dating back to 2012, where this young artist put his smooth spin on vintage/Slum Village-esque hip-hop. This guy is cut from a different cloth; he’s worth a trial – check him out!

OLOFF emerged into the NEW LEASE MUSIC spotlight for the second time with his latest EP, Life’s Got You Riveted, released earlier this month.

Described as genre-bending by the Bristolian alternative emcee, the four-track set offers up some real slick vintage hip-hop which works in unison with the (respectfully) wayward delivery that’s very similar to Mike Skinner from The Streets. It’s worth a listen – check it out!
