After being championed by VICE for creating “the most adventurous electronic records heard in ages”, OLUGBENGA follows up his debut release with the ‘Silver Pixie’ EP that marks the introduction of his own imprint – Replica Trophy. Featuring five amazing new songs, ‘Silver Pixie’ EP will be released on Monday 28th October 2013.
This summer, OLUGBENGA was selected by Diesel + EDUN to be part of the Studio Africa Project alongside Spoek and Faarrow. A virtual loudspeaker for a new generation of artists, the Studio Africa Project stretches across the continent to discover and promote inspiring individuals. OLUGBENGA returned to his birthplace for the first time since his teens to film the captivating video for title track ‘Silver Pixie, Iyawo Mi’ in Lagos, Nigeria.
Personal and reflective, ‘Silver Pixie, Iyawo Mi’ is less music video and more documentary, a homecoming witnessed through Metronomy bassist OLUGBENGA’s eyes and directed by Andy Amadi Okoroafor.
The Silver Pixie EP is signature OLUGBENGA, drawing influences from hip-hop, gospel and pop to create a unique and inventive collection of electronic music. From the opening track to the end, OLUGBENGA has curated the release to take the listener on a musical journey as seen by the artist himself.
