Late last year Debonair P (Gentleman’s Relief) teamed up with O.C. (DITC) and dropped a dope 4 track EP ‘Dive In’. For someone who flew half way across Australia to see O.C. live in early twenty fifteen, the year couldn’t of ended any better. After almost a month of bangin’ the digital format I was excited to hear that vinyl pre-orders were shipping this week and felt the urge to share with y’all..
DP provides moody soundscapes setting a perfect background for O’s forethought and skills tight cut chorus’ on all 4 joints which I found refreshing after bumping the rhyme chorus heavy classic ‘Trophies’. O.C. did what he does best and put you all in check with deep conscious lyrics and a smooth delivery that he makes sound seemingly effortless.
The bandcamp D/L came with bonus instrumentals and remixes but left me hanging for more; like a good extended play should. I don’t even need to say it, if you’re reading this blog then this is probably your shit too! Check the soundcloud snippets below.
For those who have got to have it on wax, there are still some copies available HERE
Dive in and enjoy!
Label: Mello Music Group – LP-MMG026
Label / Catalogue: LP-MMG026
Artists: Apollo Brown, OC
‘Trophies’, the debut collaboration album by D.I.T.C. member O.C. and Detroit, Michigan producer Apollo Brown. This LP was the release of the year for me back in 2012, on heavy rotation. The deluxe edition of the LP came with this little gem of a 45. Both LP and 45 pressed in white with the 45 featuring the two bonus tracks with much a similar tone to the LP. OC’s delivery and cadence sits so well on Apollo’s production. The B-side also features on a MMG Self Sacrifice mix released the same year.
