OFFAIR Records confirms the release of acclaimed Hip Hop producer and beat-maker Oh No's new album OFFAIR: Dr No's Lost Beach out May 6 with a pair of singles "Crabs N' Mudskippers" and "Morning Shores" dropping today.
Oh No is the brother of Madlib and the second half of their duo 'The Professionals.' OFFAIR: Dr No's Lost Beach is his 5th solo release following his last solo masterpiece Dr No's Ethiopium. Pitchfork praised Oh No as the kind of producer who can "make beats out of anything" and on OFFAIR: Dr No's Lost Beach he does just that merging his Lo-Fi jazz inflected beats with samples from the cult-fav Sonor Music
Editions library of Italian music from the 1970s-'80s. Through the samples, Oh No translates the cinematic scores into a daydreamy, beat-driven beach vibe.
