Featuring soulful electronic sounds, with songs like Vessel and Human Beings, this new album bridges a new spectrum in the musical palette. Osunlade’s 7th studio album begins with the The Realm Of Difference, an ambient soundscape of air meeting the heartbeat of thought and distance. Sour The Plan, featuring newcomer Supreme, dives into political and social opinions on the world we live today, its clear demise and lack of organic vibration. Eclipse allows a jazz influx where syncopated rhythms dance around time signatures effortlessly. The signature funk in Luna Moth and Camera Shy pay homage to the Minneapolis sound without a copy in sight. Human Beings is a vocoder dream ballad floating on water, while Goddess provides a piano, flute dance. Overall, this album is an evolution and conscious realisation that individualistic music means more than what is being offered.
A Clear focus in production and approach, A Man With No Past Originating The Future is meant to soothe the soul and heal the heart. If you’re looking for what you think you know of the music of Osunlade, you will stand corrected. A Man With No Past Originating The Future is an endeavour of passion. A Love of Self and a call for more than hope in the world. It asks you to see things for what they are and not for what they seem. It’s simply good music.
