Get To Know Producer oddCouple in ‘Music Is Hope’

blame it on Patrick Glynn September 16, 2016

oddCouple has frequented the DopeHouse with both his solo work (Chatterbox) and while behind the boards for the likes of Chance the Rapper, Kweku Collins, Jamila Woods, Joey Purp and others.

While you’ve probably heard a song he’s produced, you probably can’t attach a name to face of the Midwesterner — yet. A new short documentary with oddCouple will help with that.

In the three-and-a-half minute interview, oddCouple talks about how he got his producer name, his inspiration to make music (he said it was The College Dropout — after which he told a touching story of how it helped him get through his dad’s death), the expression of himself through DJ-ing and producing and more.

“I think oddCouple is the type of producer and person that aims to master their craft,” Alex Fruchter told Mass Appeal, who premiered the short film. “With that comes really studying yourself as well, listening to yourself and kind of working on your strengths. The work oddCouple has put in to that end is evidenced by the records he has been a part of thus far in 2016, and a backbone of his album, Liberation.”
