Opiuo Announces New Single ‘Sneakers’ & Australian Tour
Funkadelic bass music extraordinaire OPIUO is about to hit the road for a nationwide Australian tour, stopping in at more cities and tour stops than ever before. On this tour he’ll be promoting his new single ‘Sneakers’, from the forthcoming album Omniversal.
‘Sneakers’ is party starter, combining heavy bass with lashings of house, disco and a seriously addictive vocal hook. It’s playful, it’s cheeky, it’s funky, and it’s in your face.
OPIUO came to life in 2010 when his hit single ‘Robo Booty’ rocked the airwaves and festivals throughout the entire globe and debut LP, Slurp and Giggle was nominated for Best Independent Dance Album at the Jaegermeister Independent Music Awards.
Follow up release, 2014 LP Meraki was awarded Best Electronic Album at the New Zealand Music Awards and OPIUO’s funky, playful bass driven music continued to captivate dancefloors and airwaves.
OPIUO’s unique take on electronic music has captured the attention of music lovers around the entire globe and has seen him take on some of the biggest festivals, with sets at Coachella (USA), Glastonbury (UK) and Shambhala (Canada). As well as playing shows across India, Israel, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, OPIUO has shared the stage with the likes of Moby, Pete Tong, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, and Bonobo, to name just a few.
Opiuo’s first single of 2016 ‘Sneakers’ is his most focused, forward thinking material yet.
