Swedish producer Opolopo’s music has graced a lot of labels over the past 2 decades, including Local Talk, JVC Japan, Z Records, Toolroom, Warner Brothers, Tru Thoughts, Sony/BMG, and Defected, among others. Whether it’s House, Boogie, Broken Beat, Funk or Soul, his compositions and productions are always uncompromising with a steady gaze on the horizon and a quick glance in the rear-view mirror. His collaborations and remixes include Grammy nominated vocalist Gregory Porter, Omar, Steve Arrington, Lisa Stansfield, Shaun Escoffery, The Sunburst Band, Mario Biondi, Angela Johnson, and Dexter Wansel, to name a few. As his new remix of Mannix feat. Lisa Shaw – So Much Time drops on Dafia Records, DMCWorld goes Trainspotting with the mighty Opolopo.
1 Mannix feat. Lisa Shaw – So Much Time (OPOLOPO Remix) Dafia Records
My latest remix featuring the iconic voice of Lisa Shaw. A bit of boogie with slight touches of, dare I say it, Jazz Funk.
2 Dave & Omar – Starlight (Extended Album Mix) – Z Records
Distinguished Disco and Boogie torchbearer, Dave Lee, has teamed up with the always flawless Omar for a timeless Boogie number.

3 Floyd D – Sunshine feat. Noluthando Meje (BrokenSoul Mix) – Chymamusiq Records
South Africa has so much talent when it comes to the laid back but still deep and soulful flavours. Lovely keys and chords with refreshingly non auto tuned vocals.

4 Langa Music – Lifetime (Original Vocal Mix) – Broadcite Music
Brazilian feelgood summer vibes from South Africa. The right latin spices, a lovingly slapped bass and a massive tempo change to finish it off – what’s not to love.
5 Wipe the Needle ft. Sacha Williamson – On Time (Original Version) – Z Records
Soulful broken beat from Wipe The Needle featuring the amazing Sacha Williams, who I’ve also been fortunate to work with on a few occasions. Sacha always delivers the goods!
