As soon as I peeped the title of J57’s latest submission in my inbox, I was immediately reminded of the highly-underrated 1985 film Return to Oz, which, until this day, I still revere as the greatest film adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s Oz novels: The Marvelous Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz. It’s a lot darker than The Wizard of Oz and plays more into the tune of the original novel’s brooding tones.
Digressing. FiveSe7en Music’s founder shares “The Wizard of O.D.D.”, a loosie instrumental he created from scratch sometime in 2007, which ultimately was left on the cutting room floor. Until now. J has decided to share this untouched beat, set to appear on his next, upcoming instrumental project due out next year.
