The American born-Greece based electronic dance music DJ/Producer has his music firmly rooted in the spiritual traditions of Ifa—a Yoruba religion from Africa—which is reflected in his irrepressible sound.
My favourite line to introduce myself is… this is Osunlade.
I’ve been based in Greece for years now because… I’m at peace there.
Ifa is… a nature based culture in which you individually balance your paths and choices in hopes of polarity.
House music is… soul music.
No one would ever believe that I… have never been to Nigeria.
My worst gig this year was… the ones that didn’t happen.
My best was… the ones that did.
My idea of a perfect set is… oneness of selection and the crowd.
If I wasn’t a DJ I would… do the other things I currently do now like photography, among other things.
I would give anything to… own a private jet.
2010 has been… wonderful.
2011 will be… fulfilling.
My experience of Singapore is… always fantastic.
On my upcoming gig at Zouk I will… have fun and join my Zouk family once again.
