Hyp 291: Cadenza

Hyp 291: Cadenza

Oliver Rodigan AKA Cadenza has been building his buzz over the last few years with a steadily heightening profile and growing catalogue of music. Following his breakthrough 2013 release on Mad Decent, ‘Gyal Town’, he’s gone on to collaborate with A-list artists like Lily Allen and Sean Paul, as well as achieving greater notoriety with reggae release ‘Foundation’ featuring Stylo G and Busy Signal.

Merging the sounds and styles of the contemporary landscape, Cadenza is notorious for his rough and rugged instrumental releases, and the west Londoner’s latest offering comes in the form of serene rap track ‘Vibes’ in collaboration with Allan Kingdom, which is out now via So Cold Records.

Hyp 291 mix accurately reflects Cadenza’s style and heritage. Early on, his dancehall influences shine through in the rhythm and groove of tracks like ‘Tek Fem’ ft. Sukuward. As the mix progresses, the music evolves and broadens with numbers like Drake’s recent collaboration with Giggs, ‘KMT’, and Addison Groove’s ‘Changa’ – forming a collection of cutting edge sounds from a wide spectrum of club music.

Vibes is out now on So Cold Records, stream it or download it.
