Otiuh - 500 Flights

Otiuh - 500 Flights
Otiuh​, a spin on the Latin phrase for leisure time, is the Perth rap outfit made of ​Cesare Papa​ and ​Jahmeil Baker​. The two childhood friends deliver fierce flows over vibrant instrumentation that offers “a surreal slice of funk & soul” (Pilerats), and one of the more unique voices in the Australian hip hop landscape.

The two released a string of singles in 2018 that earned themselves national radio play on Home & Hosed, as well as the Hip Hop Show on Triple J. ​Papa​ and ​Baker​ also formed a tight three-piece band during this time and have become renowned for their high energy live shows at venues across their hometown.

This year has brought new horizons for the duo, having just released their debut EP, Cold Recreation. With tracks resulting from sessions with local musicians as well as featuring self-produced songs, ​Cold Recreation is a diverse and unpredictable body of work with beats being being likened to that of ​El-P​ or ​Brockhampton​.

To celebrate the release of Cold Recreation, Otiuh have also recently announced a debut national tour in May which will see them bring a full live band to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

About this track...

500 Flights is a braggadocios anthem that sees Otiuh flexing their lyricism whilst reminiscing on past friendships and experiences. The track features a blistering flamenco guitar line and Latin percussion, as well as a tasty bossanova beat switch at the end of the song.
