Olugbenga 'Silver Pixie' EP + MNRS Remix

Listen to Olugbenga 'Silver Pixie' EP, five tracks of future level production + the Metronomy bassist/producer's remix of MNRS' "Arms."


Back in August Olugbenga's warm & synthesized first bite off the Silver Pixie earned a spot as a mainstay of our soundsystem. Since then we've eagerly awaited what the UK-based/Nigerian-born producer has in store for the rest of his five track EP. Silver Pixie is a future level of production motivated by past thoughts. Opener "Life: The Movie" foretells a tale of contemplative workings to come from the rest of the release, which runs as a look at life through pensive synth. Silver Pixie is out now via Olugbenga's own imprint Replica Trophy. Listen to the full EP here and stream the just released rework of MNRS' "Arms" below. For more from Olugbenga grab a free download of AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #15 featuring a 1AM assortment of Nigerian influences and modern grime.
