Dublin-based producer Odd Numbers links up with Burner Records’ Sick Nanley and Local Boy for this alternative classic. Having spent the majority of 2020 cooped up in his bedroom studio in North County Dublin, emerging producer Odd Numbers now shares the first of his lockdown projects.
Best known for his work with Off-Key Collective label-mates, Sea High and Citizen Black, the beat-maker has branched off into new territory, collaborating with one of Ireland’s most prominent music groups, Burner Records. The result is an effortless and laid-back display of swagger. Very rarely would such a satirical track make you perk up and pay attention.
Burner Records’ co-founders Sick Nanley and Local Boy do so with an ultra-smooth delivery and unwavering confidence, reminiscent of OutKast's ‘So Fresh, So Clean’. The production fuses classical music with the grittier elements of boom-bap and lo-fi beats. Elegant harp plucks, dusty drums, and a thick synthesized bassline serves as the backbone of this off-kilter Hip-Hop track, laden with tongue-in-cheek braggadocio from two of Ireland’s slickest wordsmiths. They may be slobs, but they are ultimately flyer than you. ‘World’s Flyest Slobs’ is the first single from Odd Numbers’ upcoming debut album.
