At long last, ELEFANT TRAKS is pleased to introduce the debut solo record from OZI BATLA – ‘Wild Colonial’!
The most personal record of OZI BATLA’s career sees him pick apart the pieces and put them back together over the course of 12 songs. Padded with humour and honesty, “Wild Colonial” reveals the passions of love, life and hip hop culture; as well as loneliness, contradictions and a sense of purpose. Rich in imagery and reflection, songs like “Distant Shore” where the “morning sun might save his life” achieve that rare feat in hip hop – to be truly moving.
SANDRO has a crate-digger’s aesthetic, previously having worked with the likes of GOOD BUDDHA and DEF WISH CAST. His beats are psychedelic and unexpected, providing the perfect setting for Ozi’s rhymes.
