Ehiorobo's catalog is expansive, scattered, stylistically diverse, and is yet somehow still easily identifiable as progressive soul/r&b. The New Jersey born vocalist & producer debuted into the electronic & alt. r&b scene in 2015 with the release of a collaboration alongside Japanese producer Seiho (of Sugar's Campaign). Soon after, he’d release his long in the works LP titled, ‘Limeade’ at the top of 2016 via the netlabel, DESKPOP. A slew of collaborations, single releases, and tour spots alongside artists like Moon Bounce ensued it’s rollout, ultimately allowing for Ehiorobo to hone his live show soon after identifying mostly as an "internet act".
Debuting his Tsar of Gamble alias in 2018 with an LP titled, ‘A Furnace in the Coin Fountain’ that reached #1 on Bandcamp's Alt. Hip Hop Chart, Ehiorobo continued the year with extensive touring alongside contemporaries such as omniboi, Mothica, Robotaki, and Pink Navel + Artie Do Good (of Ruby Yacht), as well as releasing singles/collaborations through labels such as Majestic Casual, Secret Songs, Monstercat, and Kitsune. Ehi pulls from an eclectic range of inspiration spanning through r&b/soul, rap, jazz fusion, rock, electronica, afrobeat, & east Asian pop, citing artists/movements such as Janelle Monae, Stevie Wonder, Jamie Lidell, SBTRKT, Fela, Sambomaster, Hellfyre Club, & more.
