THUNDER ZONE is proud to present the first ever 7 inch record by Los Angeles-via-Baltimore duo ODWALLA88, featuring a B-Side remix from the rapper, producer and longtime Thunder Zone collaborator LIL UGLY MANE. Cover art comes from MAX EISENBERG, also known as DJ DOG DICK.
Simply put, Odwalla88 are a singular entity with a fully formed aesthetic and sonic position. This 7 inch is an important part of their still-developing story. Using spoken word, sampled collage and electronic drums, Odwalla88's sound is tethered to generations of underground music while still pointing towards the future.
This is all to say that Odwalla88's brand of art punk is extremely difficult to categorize. In our minds, that is a sure sign of value. Here is FACT magazine writer Miles Bowie on their album Lilly 23:
Listening to Lilly 23 for the first time gave me a rush I’ve rarely felt, the same feeling I got when I heard Hype Williams for the first time, and Macintosh Plus and This Heat and Wolf Eyes and Brainiac. It’s the sound of someone using familiar materials to make something unlike anything else, something that still feels excitingly undefined.
The 7 inch also includes a rare remix of the Odwalla88 song "Giggle" by underground rap legend Lil Ugly Mane. Noise scene luminary Max Eisenberg, also known as DJ Dog Dick, handles cover art duties. For sure, it is a rare meeting of the minds and the sort of cultural connection insanity that could really only happen on Thunder Zone. Limited to 250 hand numbered copies with sticker insert.
