On June 20th, DJ Optimus will release his debut album ‘Double Helix DNA’ on Fremdtunes. Hip Hop beats rich with Jazz and Funk influences, Turntablism, Electronica and a whole squadron of guests, including Rasco, Prince Po, iET, MC Rise, Maylay Sparks, Mo & Grazz and El Da Sensei, are the main ingredients of this debut. Optimus (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) created a complex produced masterpiece, working with a whole variety of (vintage) equipment & instruments and chopping up half the world. So, there you have it: jazzy, funky, energetic, dreamy, straight forward and with the boombap right at its core.
The album can be pre-ordered now at http://www.rushhour.nl/store_detailed.php?item=59974!
