For those who have never heard of André Orefjard before here’s the 411. André grew up in a diverse cultural suburban area in Stockholm, Sweden. He grew up to the sounds of Manu Dibango and Marvin Gaye, but soon started listening to hiphop like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest.
André then moved to New York and in the year 2000 André released his debut EP, “Back on Track”. This EP caught the attention of – London based label – Nuphonic, where he was signed. The same year “Things Do Not Appear” was included on the compilation “Nuphonic 4”. Shortly after that André was also featured on the compilation “Bass-Ment Classics” on the swedish label Raw Fusion with a sick remix of “I’ll Do That”.
Now a year later the magnificent “Refreshment of Thoughts” album dropped and “Realize” is the most tremendous joint on there so peep it! I was stunned to see that an artists of this capacity is nowhere to be found on the Internet so we hope we can get some eyes on this guy. Go to iTunes to get some of his music and please use Google to find you some more.
