Oddisee & Good Compny
Oddisee & Good Compny
Born in Washington, D.C., to a Sudanese father and an African-American mother, Amir Mohamed grew up in Maryland, influenced by soul and rap as well as myriad musicians on both sides of his family. He was all set to attend the Art Institute of Philadelphia to pursue visual art when a friend of his introduced him to hip-hop production. He was so enamored of it that he changed his plans and concentrated on making beats, ending up with the track "Musik Lounge" on DJ Jazzy Jeff's 2002 record Magnificent. Part of the Low Budget crew, which included fellow D.C.-area MCs and producers Kenn Starr, Cy Young, and Kev Brown, Oddisee released his solo debut Foot in the Door, mixed by Jazzy Jeff, on Halftooth in 2006. His 2010 effort, Traveling Man, found him signing with the Mello Music Group, where he remained for 2012's album People Hear What They See. In 2015, he returned with The Good Fight, an effort driven by social commentary and retro soul, and 2016 saw the release The Odd Tape -- an all-instrumental mixtape that was issued around the same time as his free download EP Alwasta. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

A sleeper in the Midwest, DJ MetroGnome is carrying Indianapolis on his back. Representing the school of thought that quality music deserves being in heavy rotation, you can find him at any one of his weekly residencies dropping gems. Whether it be boom bap hip hop, dusty funk, undeniable reggae & dancehall, feel-good house, Bmore bangers, relaxing down-tempo and soul, future classics or random throwbacks from decades prior, you will find yourself moving to or inspired by the music.

Having established himself as Indy’s “go-to” DJ for many of the city’s best parties, special events, concerts, and countless clubs, both locally and nationally, he is always providing an outlet for the people to experience an alternative to the mundane, copy-cat ways found far too often in the nightlife and music scenes. Spinning records has also taken him across the country, playing in venues in many cities and states, as well as backing up Grammy-winning artist Ludacris in concert and opening for hip hop icons Rakim, Ghostface, Lupe Fiasco, Eric Roberson, and others. Additionally, as part of Old Soul Entertainment and Class of 93 Promotions & Marketing, MetroGnome has conceptualized and created countless special events and themed parties, learning the art of pulling in the people.

Likewise, DJ MetroGnome has forged a strong relationship with Red Bull as the primary DJ for Indiana as well as being selected to represent the dynamic Red Bull Music Academy. Additional clients include Adidas, LRG, Budweiser, Butler Toyota Scion, Formula 1, USA Track & Field, McDonalds, Indiana Black Expo convention, and many others.
