Osunlade is an artist who personifies art. His music as well as his being creates unified melodies manifested with balance, life and wisdom. Hailing from St. Louis Missouri, a place known for pioneering jazz, blues as well, innovative artists like Miles Davis. At age seven Osunlade discovered the piano and the vision of his lifeâ€™s destiny was born. By the age twelve he found an interest in creating songs of his own. He later formed local bands, taught himself several instruments and studied further the development of his craft.
His professional journey began in 1988, at age seventeen during a visit to Hollywood. He quickly caught the ear of choreographer/performer Toni â€œMickeyâ€ Basil. Offering him a role in the development of musical pieces for several projects including the childrenâ€™s television series Sesame Street. With her encouragement he quickly moved to Los Angeles and began what would become a long history of music production. A few years later he would produce the very first album for the then independent Interscope Records. The artist was Gerardo, a long time friend and aspiring actor/dancer. â€œRico Suaveâ€ one of the very first Latin pop songs and novelty catch phrases to date was born. Now with a multi-platinum album and four gold singles to his name, it wasnâ€™t long before he was afforded many opportunities to master his craft.
Within the next ten years and over twenty albums credited, Osunlade felt the pressures and practices of the music business overshadowed his passion of music. He deciding to no longer work under the influences of corporate ideals and demands. Chosing to find spiritual solace and honor his soul, he was led to Ifa, an ancestral based culture/religion based on nature, deriving from the Yoruba tribes of Africa and practiced by the slaves during the Diaspora to America.
In 1999, Osunlade would embark on what is now his dream come true. The founding of Yoruba Records. Recognized as one of the most important dance music labels worldwide, Yoruba Records is purely a source of music created to elevate the soul.
As the success of the label grew, so did the demand for Osunlade to expand. In 2001 he released his debut album on the respected Soul Jazz Records label. â€œParadigmâ€ quickly became on of the biggest house albums that year and dubbed him the messiah of ancestral house music. With the support of djâ€™s worldwide and his music now introduced to a wider spectrum of listeners, this veteran musician/composer/producer becoming the artist finally achieved balance within.
Now known for his legendary dj sets and remixes and fourteen albums including several mix cdâ€™s, Osunlade has placed himself on solid ground., his passion is in Yoruba Records maintaining its reputation of its unparallel quality in music.
