Born and raised in Washington D.C. during one of the city’s most infamous blizzards, soso tharpa has been quick to make an impact with his experimental approach. Fusing an eclectic mix of influences, inspired by his Nigerian immigrant parents, American Top 40 radio, UK bass, and garage, the producer/DJ intuitively weaves disparate musical narratives into unpredictable and highly personal creations. Marked by a masterful blend of bold percussion, off-kilter rhythms, and evocative vocals, his music reflects a strong desire to challenge the familiar, with a sound and style seemingly in constant flux. A true artist at heart, soso tharpa explores the diverse languages of various mediums, translating his unique experiences into vibrant forms of musical expression.
