Tunde Olaniran, native of Flint MI just outside of Detroit, is blowing up and not just on my own personal speakers. He’s been featured in the New York Times Sunday Edition as an upcoming artist to watch out for because of the way “his productions use a deluge of ideas,” and also on NPR’s All Things Considered. His style is fresh and his music is exceptional, dirty, everything we’ve been waiting for.
Above is his most recent video for his single Critical, where his voice swoons with impressive, expressive control over aggressive, industrial beats.
Even Pitchfork likes him, rating his debut EP a 7/10 and proclaiming the five songs a “pitch-perfect mashup.” Do yourself a favor and listen to Tunde Olaniran’s debut EP Yung Archetype below.
