Sean OD & Tom Blip radio show

Tom Blip Boiler Room Debut

*Tom Blip (Blip Discs)

North London's Blip Discs are just past their 6th release, BLIP006: Sentimental Strings/There Were No Signs by Tom Blip, high from Boiler Room Debuts, Giles Peterson edorsements and prime plays of O'Flynn, Glowing Palms, Spooky J & Tom Blip's previous releases.

Time, traveling and care goes into every release on Blip Discs and the results are outstanding. Their releases of HiQual/Lofi House, beautiful moments and African shakedowns easily pop a party off.

*Sean OD (Balamii)

Sean's last visit gave us a peek at exclusive unreleased Rhythm Section, Lobster Theronim & his Brazilian sourced records. Sean's work on radio shows his real passion and love for music. His sets travel from perfect Larry Levane edits to Brazilian bubblers without effort, depicting a real cog in current YOUTH music.

"Sean OD is a Brazilian-Irish DJ based in South-East London, specialising in Brazilian music, Afrobeat, Jazz and forward thinking electronic grooves." (Dimensions Festival 2017).
