Camryn Marquez Here is an album that bridges musicality with introspection. This is R&B and soul in the spirit of D'Angelo and Marvin Gaye, some Andre 3000 and Lauryn Hill as well. It presents itself as music that has deeply introspective concerns about how to attain happiness and how to cope with failing to attain that happiness. The chord most strongly struck is in tune with Lauryn Hill; in all instances the work resonates with the listener as distinctly warm and probing because love and tragedy say something, and we desperately want to hear what it is that they speak of. Favorite track: Bubble.

about

Otis Junior & Dr. Dundiff have a special bond. They met one year ago at a local R&B contest in Louisville. Dr. Dundiff was the DJ of the night and Otis Junior happened to be the only contestant he had never heard of. He took the stage just playing piano and singing and Dr. Dundiff was so blown away that they ended up in the studio together shortly after.

They released their debut EP "1moment2another" on Jakarta Records only very few months after they had first met in early 2016. It was widely appreciated with heavy daytime rotation on French gatekeeper radio station Nova, many appreciating it on blogs as well as a feature on Radio Nova's "le grand Mix 2016" compilation. Despite the fact they have not been working together for a long time they managed to create their very own and unique take on hip-hop production influenced soul music.

While Otis comes from a classic soul background, Dundiff's previous release were classic underground leftfield hip-hop records that even had him handle mic duties. Otis Junior summarizes their approach of bringing their two worlds together musically with, "Consider each of us as one hemisphere the world we create together is new, different, and unexpected. " Dundiff's organic yet hard hitting productions compliment Otis Junior soulful timbre perfectly while they were able to perfect their style even further comparing their debut EP to their debut album "Hemispheres". Dundiff sums this development up: "Otis and I have this mutual agreement that we want to continue pushing our music in different directions. Hemispheres is a perfect embodiment of that approach.
