Osunlade is an artist who personifies art. His music as well as his being creates unified melodies manifested with balance, life and wisdom. Hailing from St. Louis Missouri, a place known for pioneering blues, ragtime and jazz as well. At age seven Osunlade discovered the piano and the vision of his life’s destiny was born. By the age twelve he found an interest in creating song. He later formed local bands, taught himself several instruments and studied further the development of his craft.
In 1999, Osunlade would embark on what is now his dream come true. The founding of Yoruba Records. Recognized as one of the most important dance music labels worldwide, Yoruba Records is purely a source of music created to elevate the soul.
As the success of the label grew, so did the demand for Osunlade to expand. In 2001 he released his debut album on the respected Soul Jazz Records label. “Paradigm” quickly became on of the biggest house albums that year and dubbed him the messiah of ancestral house music. With the support of dj’s worldwide and his music now introduced to a wider spectrum of listeners, this veteran musician/composer/producer becoming the artist finally achieved balance within.
Now known for his legendary dj sets, remixes and albums including several mix cd’s, Osunlade has placed himself on solid ground maintaining his reputation of unparalleled quality in music.
His interest in music began at the age of 16, when he started producing underground hip-hop music. This passion for music soon lead him to electronic music, where he quickly learned how to take over the decks and became a sought after DJ in Romania and later, playing at famous clubs and underground parties world wide for more than 10 years.
His creativity is now well known on the market, being a highly respected producer with key values. In 2015 he launched his first record label: Ruere Records pushing it to international bounds.
He played in major festivals throughout the world, specially for Sunwaves Festival, alongside major artists mentioning names like Sven Vath, Ricardo Villalobos, ZIP, Dewalta, Thomas Melchior, Audio Werner, Digitaline, Luciano, Richie Hawtine, Dubfire, Onur Ozer, Tobias Neumann, Raresh, Rhadoo and many more.
