Tunde Olaniran on Michigan Movement

Member: Tunde Olaniran

Artist Tunde Olaniran spoke with Michigan Movement host Angelina earlier this week. Tunde Olaniran has toured Europe and still manages to be an active part in his community with projects like Raise it up! Youth Arts and Awareness.  His sound can be described as a soulful pop mixture but one great description  he shared was “hyper modern pop” so we will stick to that for now.

Tomorrow Tunde Olaniran will perform at the Trumbellplex for Zombietronix Halloween Party. Doors open at 8pm

Passalacqua

Group: Passalacqua

Members: Blaksmith and Mister

(Interview begins: 14:55)

Passalacqua came into the studio for a chat on their music, ice cream, and the meaning of “prop-hop”. Passalacqua has an underground sound that shows signs of Old School hip/hop with a bit of funk dashed in.  If you are in need of a live performance that will leave you wondering, “what is happening?”, “I need this music”, then this is your group. On stage members Blaksmith, and Mister don some pretty nifty masks and some other surprises but you will have to check them out for the details.

Passalacqua had their record release of their collaboration with Detroit’s Duende this weekend, and released their video for “Been A Minute” earlier in September.

Catz N Dogz Interview

Catz N Dogz

Members:  Grzegorz and Wojciech or Greg and Voitek

We spoke with Voitek over in Berlin from Catz N Dogz for their Detroit appearance. Catz n Dogz filled the upper level of  Sinbads on the Marina earlier in September. Thankfully the venue had a porch because the floor was packed with dancers. Catz n Dogz has that “housey” sound that Detroiters love.
