OPOLOPO – OUR WORLD feat ERIK RICO (album preview)

‘Voltage Controlled Feelings’ is the sonic testimony of more than two decades of serious electro, funk and boogie studies from Swedish synth commander Opolopo! Blending epic Blade Runner soundscapes and Krautrock sequencer lines into cruising west coast beats and beyond, he proves that science fiction and funk are not only compatible, but have always belonged together. ‘Voltage Controlled Feelings’ is a newly discovered planet orbiting a distant star, that also pays homage to the synthesizers, drum machines and the artists who influenced Opolopo’s music. Echoes of Prince, Herbie Hancock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Isao Tomita can be heard throughout the album.

Fellow electronauts include L.A. vocalist Erik Rico, known for his work with Tupac Shakur and David LaChapelle, UK acid jazz hit singer Farah, Toronto-based jazz vocalist Sacha Williamson and Stockholm-based oral transmorpher of sounds and words Amalia ‘Miz Fuze’ Townsend, who will release her debut album produced by Opolopo via TDR soon. Don’t miss the Opolopo starcruiser!

The official release date for Opolopo’s critically acclaimed concept album ‘Voltage Controlled Feelings’ has now been set to December 3rd 2010, but pre-release downloads are now available for those who can’t wait! Check out a preview below feat Erik Rico and buy the full album HERE
