DJ OF THE WEEK 2.22.10: OSUNLADE

You hear it said often, “House Music is a Spiritual thing,” and I am willing to bet no one feels that more than Osunlade. Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where the Spirits all but walk along the streets side by side with the living, it’s kind of apropos that one of its sons, a priest of the traditional Yoruba Spiritual way of life called Ifá, is known as one of House music’s most spiritual figures.

Aside from his Spiritual side, Osunlade also has the power of music inside him. A superb DJ, he has cast his DJ spell in clubs all over the world, moving crowds with hard 4 to the floor beats laced with that Tribal sound he is known for and all the Deep and Soulful House Music you can stand. Osunlade is also a producer, having started off doing the deed for others, he finally broke off on his own and eventually put out his own albums, Aquarian Moon (2007), Elements Beyond (2009), Rebirth (2009).

Though he’s a much sought after producer and remixer, Osunlade prefers to choose his projects carefully having long ago given up doing it for the money or notoriety and more so because it calls him spiritually. He has even moved to Greece where he lives a more quiet and peaceful life away from the hustle of the city and nitelife cultures. One thing is for sure, whether it is one of his productions or simply him casting spells from behind the turntables, he calls us spiritually as well with his works. Let’s hope he doesn’t take that away from us, God knows we could all use the Spiritual stimulation.
