Opolopo is Yoruban for "plenty", a word that exemplifies the diversity of this production wizard’s musical voyage. Whether it's broken beat, funk, house, or future soul, his compositions and productions are always uncompromising with a steady gaze on the horizon and a quick glance in the rear-view mirror. Beyond Jipangu contains thirteen oustanding tracks, including three remixes of original tracks produced by Bennson, Chamade Beat and Sugar Beats. Featured artists are Karl Wagner, Amalia, Stephanie Renee, Anna Sise, Nadine Francois and Ed Blak. Most of Opolopo's stuff is danceable but never looses the jazz and soul element. As Opolopo says, ”It’s like Herbie Hancock once said in an interview: "As much as I kept trying to make it funk, it kept integrating with these jazz elements, so after a while I stopped fighting."
