The Body Workshop – Episode two Feat OdD (OdD Music) – 25/11/14

TerraFerma in association with Be-at.tv presents a duo from London with bags of talent and a bright future in front of them. Damian and Danny (OdD) are no strangers to music, born into the life from musician fathers they grew up on the sounds of Reggae in their youth. This sound would become their main inspiration, as well as their shared passion for raw drums, nasty undertones, and pulsating atmospheric synths.

Damian had been playing drums and producing music for over ten years, while co-owning London based garage label Krunch Records under the alias D.A.Erbz and Northern Lights. The label was a huge success with their first release It’s the Way and has a discography of 14 releases. Danny on the other hand has been a DJ with a rock solid vinyl collection dating back to the 90’s and an established DJ on the London underground circuit. Together they began to harness their skills and musical knowledge to develop a distinctive sound unlike any other, a sound that can only be described as OdD.

OdD is an adjective denoting the quality of being unpaired, occasional, strange or unusual, or a person who is viewed as eccentric.
It may also refer to: Only drums & Decks !
The DJ duo enjoy playing long extended vinyl sets back to back that combine many different styles of House and Techno from old to new, mixed up with their own productions that come together in a very special way. They create a special journey while always remembering to deliver the element of surprise through unpredictable sets while EQ’ing each mix differently to create a sound that is truly their own.

As producers the duo have been developing their OdD style for many years integrating analogue sound into the digital era. They love the use of creative sampling or writing original compositions. In 2012 during the warm summer months, their OdD Music label was born. This brainchild became the canvas for them to release their musical visions to a small audience. The very limited 100 copy vinyl series that is exclusive to Kristina Records in London has been an interstellar success with copies flying off the record stores shelves. These musical treasures became highly sought after by DJ’s around the world.

In 2013 OdD saw another new release on Moscow Records with Moscillation and then in 2014 they joined the Sol Asylum family with their release Long Time Coming. The release on the Berlin based art and music concept label was a huge success selling out almost immediately. What is in store for the future of the OdD boys? Only time will tell but with their one of a kind approach to production and DJing things can only get OdD from here on out.
