Acclaimed Tri-Angle Records producer oOoOO brings his ghostly, narcotic club jams to Holocene.
“It would be easy to classify San Francisco’s Christopher Dexter Greenspan as a witch-house or drag producer and be done with it. Under the moniker oOoOO (pronounced “oh”), he’s releasing his self-titled debut EP on Tri Angle– a label that has come to be associated with the trendy sound through releases from like-minded acts such as Balam Acab.
And though certain hallmarks of the genre’s syrupy electro-goth can be detected on oOoOO, from the trap-hop drum machines to the frosted synths, he seems determined not to be pigeonholed, all while remaining one of the frontrunners of the scene. Simply put, the guy isn’t easy to peg. While making music that practically prides itself on being druggy and other-wordly, Greenspan is able to rise above his peers.
Highlight “Hearts” drops a pin at the crossroads where commercially viable hip-hop gravitates toward left-field electronic influences. Talking to Pitchfork a few months ago, Greenspan discussed his admiration for pop-centered hip-hop and R&B artists like Nicki Minaj and Usher, and much of oOoOO (like the woozy club vibe of “Burnout Eyess” or the uncharacteristically sensual allure of “Sedsumting”) manages to bridge these two worlds.” – Pitchfork
