Definitely a banger: Brisbane producer Odd Mob inks North American deal with APA
Local Brisbane producer and DJ Odd Mob – known to his mother as Harry Hope – has just announced a deal with North American touring giant APA, launching the young Aussie into the US market.
He’ll be joining the expansive APA roster (also known as the Agency for the Performing Arts) one of the broadest and most diverse talent agencies in LA, responsible for the likes of 50 Cent, Blondie, LIL XAN, EDX and more. They have HQs in Beverly Hills, New York, Nashville and London.
Hope enthused “I’m incredibly excited to take my music to an international level. Playing in the States has always been a dream of mine and it’s awesome that it’s coming true!”
Cory Riskin from APA said “Odd Mob is an incredible DJ/producer who continues to push boundaries with every release and live show.
“Beyond excited to bring him to North America in 2019. Big announcements coming soon.”
Breaking onto the scene in 2014 with smash hit Is It A Banger? which rose to #70 on that year’s triple j Hottest 100, Odd Mob – formerly a duo with fellow producer Robbie Jacobs – is a man about town when it comes to collaborations.
He’s worked on remixes for the likes of Lorde, A-trak and Motez.
He also produced the global hit Call On Me with fellow Aussie Starley, with two also working together on Into You which received acclaim from Annie Mac in a world premiere on Radio 1, enjoying UK airplay. The song dominated the ARIA Club Chart as the highest performing track of 2016, sitting in the top position for seven straight weeks.
He’ll be road testing a bunch of new live material for his debut album, which is slated for a Q1 2019 release, in his first hard ticket run of shows in October.
