Imagine a precisely blended concoction of tight irresistible grooves, chunk fueled bouncy beats, luscious brooding soundscapes, dollops of stomach morphing bass, and a bowl of scrumptious glitch. Welcome to the musical world of Opiuo.
A self confessed music addict with a light hearted approach to life and art. Originally starting his musical life as a drummer, Opiuo now finds himself at his best hiding from the world, creating fun fueled music. Influences coming from everything, from life changing experiences, to mere cups of tasty tea. Incorporating sounds as varied as jazz, reggae, funk, rock, psychedelia, and down right chunky goodness.
Originally from a small town in the deep New Zealand countryside, Opiuo now resides in Melbourne Australia, where he has built an international reputation for his extremely original, party fueling creations, and has played live to sold out crowds all across America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
The highly sought after Opiuo sound is being included in DJ sets from some of the biggest names in the business, and featuring on high profile radio stations, including the infamous BBC Radio One (UK). Quite literally rocking dance floors in every corner of the globe. He has also featured on numerous download charts, including #1 on breatport.com for Breaks, Electronica, Dubstep, and even Chillout.
His latest full length release "Slurp And Giggle" was nominated for Best Dance / Electronic Release at the Australian Independent Music Awards, reached number 10 on iTunes, and was the most downloaded album for 2010 on addictech.com
