ACCLAIMED RAPPER AND RECORD PRODUCER OH NO’S NEW ALBUM OFFAIR: DR. NO’S LOST BEACH OUT TODAY VIA OFFAIR RECORDS/UNIVERSAL MUSIC CANADA
NEW ALBUM COMBINES OH NO’S SIGNATURE PRODUCTION WITH SAMPLES CULLED FROM THE ARCHIVAL SONOR MUSIC EDITIONS CATALOG OF ITALIAN LIBRARY MUSIC
OFFAIR RECORDS’ MISSION IS TO CREATE DEEPER EXPERIENCES THROUGH MUSIC
6 May 2022 (Toronto, ON) - Today, OFFAIR Records drops the new album by acclaimed Hip Hop producer and beat-maker Oh No. OFFAIR: Dr. No’s Lost Beach out now is his 5th solo release following his last solo masterpiece Dr. No’s Ethiopium.
Oh No is the brother of Madlib and the second half of their duo ‘The Professionals.’ Pitchfork praised Oh No as the kind of producer who can “make beats out of anything” and on OFFAIR: Dr. No’s Lost Beach he does just that merging his Lo-Fi jazz inflected beats with samples from the cult-fave Sonor Music Editions library of Italian music from the 1970s-’80s. Through the samples, Oh No translates the cinematic scores into a daydreamy, beat-driven beach vibe.

Listening to the album, Oh No says “is meant to feel like going on a vacation across the sea to a remote beach island. This record is a journey, straight from the beach, falling down a waterfall and looking up. Each song is a chapter or a scene, it’s like a game where you follow the light air with the wind and you jump off the cliff into the water, enter digital oasis and adventure.”
