How many licks it takes to get to the center of what makes die-hard hip-hop heads tick could be just what MR. OWL is after. The Pittsburgh-based DJ and producer who gets kicks from tinkering found electronics into tricked-out toy instruments has been turntabling his way through the underground music scene, fusing classic hip-hop with bit-beat electronica and developing his independent label PARLIAMENT OF STRIX RECORDS since its founding in early 2011.
With a growing list of multi-media collaborators including his DJ & production counterpart Spaed, underground emcees Jack Wilson, Punch3nello, and Mr. Jhak, as well as video artist Casey Hallas of the Legendary Androids, MR. OWL’s preference for soup-mix projects continues to define his cross-genre aesthetic. Together with Spaed, they comprise the dastardly duo DOMINANT FORCE. Mashing together a mecca of mix-martyred samples and lyric-rich tracks, OWL’s music maintains a fresh, independent-bred sound worth keeping an ear to - which begs two questions: how many licks did it take... and what’s the next flavor?
