DJ Odi
(Cymbalism Recordings/Digital Konfusion /Jungle Sky/Strategic sessions/
/ )
New York, NY

Dj Odi is one of New York City's finest jungle DJs. His performances date
back as far as 1989, when the 14 year old Harlem native began DJing for
various events in his neighborhood. His musical interests took a new turn in
1992, when he began promoting for the NASA parties of New York City. It was
at these now-legendary parties that he gained his first residency, and began
his career as one of America’s most sought after jungle DJs.

Odi’s talent and ability to please a crowd quickly gained him notoriety. He
began touring nationally in 1995; his immaculate sets packed dance floors
everywhere with a party vibe that became synonymous with the DJ Odi name.
His signature style was characterized by his unique blend of scratching and
sampling, both of which were more prominent elements of hip hop music. His
creative fusion of hip hop and early drum n bass rapidly gained popularity
among DJs and producers, and it was through this fusion that Odi has been
credited for the development of “hipstep” (a.k.a. “jump up”) jungle. His
accomplishments as an innovator of urban music were further recognized in
1998, when Odi became the first jungle DJ to ever be accepted into the
prestigious ZULU Nation, forever demolishing the barrier between hip hop and
drum n bass.

While DJ Odi is best known for his live performances, he is also an
established producer. His production history goes as far back as 1995, with
releases on both BML and the now defunct Jungle Sky label. He also pushed
his craft to larger levels with his successful foundation of the Digital
Konfusion crew. Recently, Odi has been working with the Digital Konfusion
crew to spearhead their record label and clothing line, as well as running
two successful radio shows on The Hijack airs on
Wednesdays, from 1pm to 6pm EST, and the Digital Konfusion Mixshow, airs on
Friday nights from 8pm to 11pm EST. Both shows are co-hosted with DJ Vandal,
along with rotating guest DJs.

Over the last decade, Odi has shared the stage with such legendary and
respected DJs as: DB, On-E, Jason Jinx, Mr. Kleen, Frankie Bones, Adam X,
Soulslinger, Heather Heart, Micro, Richie Hawtin, Craze, Dara, The Burner
Brothers, Blueline (of the Mathematics crew), Phantom 45, Danny the
Wildchild, Freaky Flow, J-Smooth, AK1200, Capital J, Hazeus, Trace, Ed Rush,
Andy C, Darren J, DJ SS, Keaton, Hive, DJ Rap, Stakka, Roni Size, Krust,
Bryan Gee, Sonic & Silver, and DJ Seoul. He can also be seen playing various
New York drum n bass events such as Direct Drive, Camouflage, Recess, and
the infamous Koncrete Jungle, where he headlines Strategic Sessions on the
last Monday of every month.
