DJ/producer Opolopo and singer Amalia entered my iPod last year when I came across his 2010 release Voltage Controlled Feelings via Google Play. Now, his latest Mutants is rattling my eardrums (in that good way!). Alongside Dam-Funk and a handful of others, the Hungarian-born, Sweden-bred Opolopo is creating a mutant blend of soul, funk, hip-hop and house.

In the video –while visiting Jakarta, Indonesia for a performance, Opolopo and his partner and collaborator Amalia, talks about future-funk, their influences and more.

About ND McCray

Based in St. Louis, Missouri, since 2014, I created Unclouded By Ambition in my hometown of Houston, Texas, in 2007. It was a way for me to write about all the books, music, movies, art and photography I was consuming. I worked at a bookstore at the time, but over these last eight years as a writer, I've interviewed some of the most talented singers, songwriters, DJs, musicians and filmmakers. I've traveled a lot too and written for a variety of publications. I also adopted the sweetest dachshund mix; his name is Nickolas Nelson, named for one of my favorite musicians, Prince Rogers Nelson!
