Momentum: Oscar #Worldpeace
Oscar’s honesty and introspective rhymes, which convey vulnerability in one breath and shameless flexing in the next are a winning formula that has seen him build a rapidly growing fan-base and gain recognition for his unique craft.
Growing up in North London’s Tottenham where artists like Wretch 32, Skepta and JME were beginning to thrive, Oscar felt as if something was in the water. It wasn’t until he started spending time with his cousin, who had a studio at home and would hold grime sets in his kitchen, that he was first inspired to create his own music.
His first release came in the shape of ‘Mook’, which caught the attention of The Streets’ Mike Skinner, who has since become his mentor and worked closely with him.
Both his releases ‘Recluse’ & ‘IC3’ project earlier this year gained critical acclaim from the likes of i-D, Vice, Dummy, Earmilk, Complex, Pigeons and Planes, Clash, GRM Daily and RWD. He also performed at a Noisey rooftop party and gained radio action including spins from Zane Lowe, Mistajam, Twin B, Gilles Peterson, Annie Mac and Toddla T.
