Anderson .Paak - O.B.E. Vol.1 (LP)
O.B.E. Vol. 1 is Breezy Lovejoy's (which was the name Anderson.Paak was using back then) debut release. Originally released in 2012 it was one of our favorite releases that year. Since then we have been following Paak's releases closely and ended up becoming die hard fans. His ability to effortlessly tie together Soul, Hip Hop, R&B and a whole lotta other influences sets him apart from a lot of artists out there. He sings, he raps, he produces, he plays drums, his live shows are incredible.
We knew at some point this needed to see a vinyl release and after meeting Anderson in Berlin last weekend during his 70 city world tour with Watsky, whose album he produced, we knew this time had come. A classic in the making. Hopefully we'll also release some other releases from his catalogue on vinyl sometime soon.
Make sure to check for Anderson Paak's upcoming releases. He currently working on new music with Ta-ku, Iamnobodi, Knx and many more, and had a number of guest appearances on Dr. Dre's just-released Compton.
