Musician, creative director, poet and activist Ogun began his foray into music back in 2016 as a part of hip-hop trio AFTERPARTY. Their debut EP Would You Call This Art? was described as being reminiscent of Outkast, Digable Planets and A Tribe Called Quest. An ambitious and multifaceted musician, Ogun’s solo venture blends modern grime with old skool hip-hop by chopping and flipping samples; repurposing old songs to create a sound that is overflowing with vitality. In his most revealing album yet, Flight Mode – released last year – Ogun discusses themes of identity, homesickness and self-progression.
