Opiuo - Syzygy 01 Tour at Mezzanine SF

Subdocta, Devin Kroes

Fri, April 27, 2018

9:00 pm


There's nothing quite like OPIUO. The Kiwi-born, Aussie living globetrotter uses every modern production technique in the book to make the most funky oldschool getdowns imaginable. James Brown inbvented the funk and George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic refined and perfected it directly around the ONE. Opiu's music is the logical next step, combining P-Funk's cartoonish adherence to the ONE with the most outrageous beats and bass. On Saturday, April 27, he will push Mezzanine's Funktion 1 system to its limits joined by Reno wobblist SUBDOCTA and Bay Area basshead DEVIN KROES. Tickets for this earthshaking getdown are available now at http://bit.ly/opiuo18hush


Opiuo is Oscar Davey-Wraight. Born in the festival paddocks of rural New Zealand, he packed his bags and headed to Australia at the youthful age of 20 to find meaner, greener party pastures. Landing in the grimey, colourful streets of Melbourne, he built a emphatic fan base amongst club and festival goers across the great red land of Australia. Using his positivity as a catalyst for mighty musical enjoyment, he captivated audiences with his extremely unique funkadelic bass heavy creations.

His 2010 debut album Slurp & Giggle spread like wildfire across the global underground music scene, earning him nominations for best album at the Australian Independent Music Awards. His follow up albums, Meraki in 2014 and Omniversal in 2016, were winners and finalists for the New Zealand Music Awards in the “Electronic Album Of The Year” category respectively, and continued by gaining millions of plays and downloads across all the major musical platforms.

Since then Oscar has gone on to be specifically selected to support the most respected names in electronic music, including Bassnectar, Griz, Pretty Lights and more. He’s headlined the greatest venues in the world, including Colorado’s famous Red Rocks Amphitheater with his 5 piece live band juggernaut The Opiuo Band. He has also played every major North American, Australasian and European festival to rave reviews.

His highly sought after remix works span artists far and wide, from Gwen Stefani to Kimbra, Griz to Pretty Lights, Koan Sound to Infected Mushroom, earning him respect as a truly versatile artist, with no specific genre box to restrict his musical endeavours.

2018 will see the release of a ton of new music, as well as playing some of the biggest headline shows of his career. This is down to the beautiful support of his die hard fans throughout the planet, who share in his vision of a positive, fun filled world of love, family, and supporting your friends. It’s not what we got, it’s what we give.
