Known by many for his collaborations with Teedra Moses and fellow HNRL member Trackademicks, to his remixes of Little Dragon and Penguin Prison, 1-O.A.K. has finally presented his debut offering. Thirteen songs, entirely self-produced, Special Request couples 1-O.A.K.’s years of extensive vocal experience with personal musical ambition. Rooted in Oakland soul and funk, 1-O.A.K. manages to present a project that represents civic pride as well as his ability to transcend those roots, fusing everything from Hip-Hop, Samba to UK Funky. As R&B and Soul music are increasingly influenced by other genre’s sensibilities, 1-O.A.K.’s sound will continue to nourish those with broad musical appetites.
