Ohbliv - MindGarden (cover art by Ashley Richardson)
The world-renowned Ohbliv is back with another full length beattape, MindGarden, and it’s guaranteed to put a sheen on your eardrums with its impressionable psychedelic chillwave loops. From the deep throat funk bass lines of “Involved Tones” to the 90s R&B flavor (“Step to Peace”), the sounds are cool as shit and all over the place. You are guaranteed to never get bored with his formulae. The mind boggles about this guy’s vinyl record collection and how many gems must be there, with his mostly under utilized or rarely-heard soul jam gems. (At least, mine did.) With the ultra vintage vibe, this is some of the most listenable electronic instrumental music from RVA today.
Catch Ohbliv live in Norfolk this Saturday, 7/5 @ Granby Theatre with DJ Harrison, Sound Genesis, Gabe Niles, Better Beat Bureau, BTYM, Hoodboi, Falcons, and MORE!
