THE MELTING POT 2.15.2011
Featured Artist - OPIUO
Ok now, imagine if you will, a precisely blended concoction of tight irresistible grooves, chunk fueled bouncy beats, luscious brooding soundscapes, dollops of stomach morphing bass, and a bowl of scrumptious glitch. Welcome to the musical world of Opiuo.
A self confessed music addict with a light hearted approach to life and art. Opiuo is at his best whilst hiding from the world, creating fun fueled music. Influences coming from everything, from life changing experiences, to mere cups of tea. Incorporating sounds as varied as jazz, reggae, funk, rock, psychedelia, and down right chunky goodness.
Originally from a small town in the deep New Zealand countryside, Opiuo now resides in the pimp hustle back streets of Melbourne Australia, where he has built an international reputation for his original, party fueling creations, and has played live to sold out crowds all across North America and Australasia.
The highly sought after Opiuo sound is being included in DJ sets from some of the biggest names in the business, and featuring on high profile radio stations, including the infamous BBC Radio One (UK). He’s performed alongside the likes of MC Hammer, Bassnectar, and Tipper. Quite literally rocking dance floors in every corner of the globe.
