Oddisee- yU Traveling (NYC Remix) f. yU

by Eric C. on February 8, 2010

The Song:

Life on a road is rite of passage for every artist, and each stop on the journey leaves an indelible mark on those who pass through. Emcee and producer extraordinaire Oddisee, one third of one of 2009′s celebrated group Diamond District, is certainly no stranger to the travel game, having visited the shores of Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa and South America in the name of boom-bap. Be it the sleepy ambiance of a wayside town, or the frenetic energy of a major city, the experiences of Oddisee’s worldly adventures are channeled into his new 24-track instrumental album Traveling Man, out now digitally and available as a limited edition vinyl pressing on February 23rd. In an effort to re-imagine a trip into Gotham City, Oddisee has recruited fellow Diamond District rhyme-slinger yU as passenger for a remix to “NYC.” The Big Apple has never sounded so good, as yU laces an electric 16 bar verse over a vibrant track that captures a slice of the timeless spirit of the city. Infectious drums and soaring strings serve as a sonic travel guide through the boroughs as yU echoes the resilience of NYC, rapping that there’s “a lot more to do, but off to a good start.” Safe travels, everyone.
Oddisee’s Traveling Man is available digitally via Mello Music Group.
