Music: Oliver the 2nd – R+ vol. 1

California-based rapper and producer Oliver the 2nd has come through with a new tape titled R+ vol. 1. He’s been one of my favourite musicians over the last decade or so, but I haven’t listened to a project from him in a while, so listening to this new project reminds me why he’s so dope.

Jazzy, woozy and soulful soundscapes is what he brings to the tape. From the Nas “No Ideas Original” sample on “noideashi” to the Busta Rhymes sampling “champredlght,” the entire tape is full of gorgeous, synth and key-heavy compositions that sound soulful and incredibly funky. “wishuwud” samples Ludacris and T.I’s “Wish You Would” to great effect as well. Overall, Oliver the 2nd comes through with a short but sweet new remix project and I can’t wait to listen to more new music from the talented artist.

Listen to R+ vol. 1 below via Bandcamp below and don’t forget to support!

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks 🙏
