Growing up amidst the sounds of New York hip hop, his father playing oud, Go-Go, and gospel, Amir took his first steps as an MC producer in the analog basement studio of his legendary neighbor, Garry Shider (Parliament Funkadelic).
The American hip hop musician, MC and producer Oddisee is at the moment working on his new album. The multicultural artist was born in the US but has drawn musical influences from powerful singers, poets, as well as bluegrass and gospel. According to Oddisee himself, he has been inspired for instance by Rakim's and A Tribe Called Quest's music: "These rappers don't talk about drugs or murder, and I can relate more to their lyrics". Since 2008 Oddisee has published his material at the Mello Music Group and collaborated for instance with Talib Kweli, J-Live, Little Brother and Apollo Brown.
Oddisee is brought to Bassline Festival by Red Bull Music Academy!
