Very happy to welcome BLACK ORANGE JUICE to the True Panther fam with the September 24th release of their “3 Started Alone” EP. Black Orange Juice are Ossie, Paul Black and Tilz – 3 childhood best friends, 1 producer, 2 (sometimes three) awesome singers that find a sweet spot between some of Ossie’s raw UK Funky/Bass compositions for Hyperdub, the melodic ebullience of classic Chicago House. When we heard this stuff at first we were floored – totally celebratory, unafraid and dope music.
The sound of BOJ is rooted in a lifetime of music together, the sound of three childhood comrades that have grown up as a creative unit. From classic shy first steps harmonizing in the halls of their Roman Catholic comprehensive in East Ham, to after-school sessions fawning over their dad’s Marvin, Luther and Chic vinyls, to maiden clubbing voyages together at house nights with DJing older cousins, the boys began to flex their musical muscles as one. “We were those three kids that were just into music at school, it’s literally all we cared about. So that’s what we did every day,” remembers Ossie.
