SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Waajeed and Dirt Teck Rech Official Label Release Party, Chesters Music Inn, 11pm
Detroit native Robert O’Bryant has made a name for himself as a music producer, and is noted for his work with the late J Dilla and Radiohead, among others.
Performing under the nameWaajeed, which means “finder” or “seeker” in Arabic, O’Bryant is part of the hip-hop group, Platinum Pied Pipers.
But there’s more to him than meets the eye, as evidenced by his newest project, Dirt Teck Rech Label. The label features work from Jeedeci, Tiny Hearts, Electric Street Orchestra, and Jeedo, which is certainly enough to keep him busy.
Catch O’Bryant on a Berlin stopover of his European tour, with a DJ set at Chesters, preceded by a free in-store gig at OYE Records. Natalye Childress
