Los Angeles based Oxóssi was raised on a vast array of music since early childhood: from jazz artists like Duke Ellington and Oscar Peterson to more dynamic progressive pop/rock acts like Yes, Supertramp, Rush and Emerson Lake & Palmer. Later on in his youth, Oxóssi acquired a taste for hip-hop through the stylings of J Dilla, Common and MF Doom, which would eventually form the basis of his initial electronic production endeavors. He first started producing electronic music after graduating college, and started creating hip-hop beats inspired by his long time love of the genre. It wasn’t until about four years ago, when Oxóssi initially became enamored by the raw energy of deep dubstep, that he quickly changed the path of his production style. Oxóssi’s extensive exposure to a diverse range of music has allowed him to successfully craft his highly eclectic, ambient and bass heavy style; one that blends his deeply rooted musical upbringing with his own creative individuality. His atmospheric take on bass music production enables him to achieve his creative goal of transporting listeners beyond the music itself to different mental spaces, facilitating a form of meditation on music. With current releases on Banana Stand Sound, Crucial Recordings, Deep Dark & Dangerous, and more, Oxóssi is infecting the underground with his unique songwriting personality.
