Oddisee - Rock Creek Park (Green Vinyl LP)
Now with a limited green vinyl repress!
"Rock creek park is & has always been one of my favorite places in
Washington, DC. It has a way of aging with you & adapting to where
you are in life. When I was younger, it was a place for skipping rocks,
bike rides & imaginary adventures in the woods. As a teen it was a
place where I played basket ball, had cook outs with friends &
walked through with dates. As an adult it's my short cut through the
city, my quickest way from Silver Spring to George Town. One thing it
still is and always well be is my retreat.
Listening to the Black Byrd's "Rock Creek Park" inspired me to create an entire album around the park & my relationship with it. If the park were to have a soundtrack, what would it be? What does walking along the trails of the park sound like? What does driving on the narrow tree lined roads sound like? This album is my interpretation of Rock Creek Park through break beats, samples & live instrumentation."
