Courtesy of Mello Music Group.

Oddisee has debuted his newest album Rock Creek Park. To give everyone a taste, Oddisee & MMG are giving away the song Still Doing It featuring yU of Diamond District. The song opens with hand drums and piano before breaking into tambourine shakes and yU's brillant flow. The humble king takes us on a lyrical ride through the park. The perfect end of summer jam, Still Doing It lets you feel the breeze and trees without losing any of the musical edge you expect from an artist like Oddisee who is always pushing boundaries. So relive the last moments of summer with Oddisee & yU: "Pennslyvania Ave, we rolling around, this is summertime we got the windows down." Then slide into Autumn with Rock Creek Park.
Oddisee Says:

This has been one of my most productive summers & somehow I've managed to still enjoy the outdoors. I moved to Brooklyn, New York in October so this has been my first official summer in NYC. The inspiration I've received from my new environment has definitely had a positive impact on my music. Once the weather broke, I spent allot of time cycling around New York & through its parks. It reminded me how much I loved Rock Creek Park in my home town, Washington, DC. This album is dedicated to Rock Creek Park & the memories its given me.
How To Get The Album:

The new Oddisee instrumental album "Rock Creek Park" is already available electronically and drops everywhere on CD September 6th, and on vinyl September 27th.
Enjoy the remix & feel free to share!
