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

Living in St. Louis since 2014, I created UBA in Houston, Texas, in 2007 as a way for me to write about the music, books, movies, art and photography I love. In that time, I've interviewed singers, songwriters, DJs and musicians. I've traveled a lot and written for a variety of publications, too. I also adopted a dog, Nickolas Nelson, named for one of my favorite musicians, Prince Rogers Nelson. So poke around and learn some things!
