Producer extraordinaire, Opolopo and talented chanteuse, Shea Soul team up for a serious slice of soulful deep house.
Instrumental heads should turn to the Dub remix; Opolopo builds tension, taking things on a darker, more bass-led route.
Opolopo is a musician, DJ, remixer, composer and all-round production wizard, who can turn his hand to funk, house, or future soul at ease, which makes him one of Europe’s most talented producers. Influenced from early age by Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Jean-Michel Jarre, Isao Tomita, and Kraftwerk, Opolopo now plays as a one-man band from London to Tokyo (equipped with keyboards and vocoder). His music spans over a decade on labels JVC Japan, Warner Brothers, Sony/BMG, Tru Thoughts, Om Records, Local Talk, and Especial Records. Collaboration/remix highlights include the legendary Dazz Band, Craig David, Mr. V, Lanu, Simon Grey, Ok_Ma, Mpho Skeef, Eska, and Sacha Williamson. On the underground tip, his bootleg remixes of Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, and Erykah Badu have music connoisseurs worldwide in a frenzy.
Shea Soul’s musical career has taken a distinctly independent route since leaving the renowned BRIT school. Since then Shea has worked with the likes of Toddla T, Basement Jaxx, Bugs in the Attic, Zed Bias, Calvin Harris, Example, and Shy FX to name a few. Writing and featuring on hit club tracks such as ‘Make it Funky For Me’ with Attacca Pesante, and ‘Perfectly’ with the Layabouts, music has paved the way for Shea. She’s performed to thousands of people worldwide, singing at festivals and stages covering Japan, South Africa, and Europe including London Wembley arena, and Hamburg’s famous Mojo Club, and her writing and vocals have featured on released singles globally. We hope you’ll agree “Be Enough” captures Shea’s unique voice, style and charm in a soon to be prominent addition to her repertoire.
