"As a man that is doing what I do as a passion and as a creative blessing I want to leave something that matters to me and not just do something that is expected." Osunlade
As an all-round artist who truly lives and breathes for the various works he creates, Osunlade is almost without equal. Under various guises as a producer he has crafted some of the most enduring and evocative records ever made and as a conceptual artist and photographer, he has brought his unique vision to life.
Osunlade In The House is the culmination of a life spent in and around music. In it, he draws on a lifelong obsession with melody, song and groove, creating a deeply personal two-disc mix that touches on the many influences that have made him the revered DJ he is today.
From the deep, soulful sounds with which he made his name to tougher, groove-led house, Osunlade In The House is a truly engaging listen from start to finish, with tracks and remixes from Christian Prommer, Rafael Moraes, Orisa, Donnie, Tucillo and of course Osunlade himself laying the foundations.
There's also a stunning record from Afefe Iku to be found in 'The Blues', which is exclusive to this compilation.
Osunlade In The House is representative of Defected's commitment to presenting quality house music in all its various forms. With a tracklist and tone dedicated to the underground, this mix will suit lifelong fans and newcomers to Osunlade's inimitable craft alike.
