Immediately following the original release, OddKidOut decided to put an electronic spin on his newly reclaimed neo-soul single, "Wonderfull”. I must say, the title of his track really speaks for itself.
This guy has a seriously impressive background which is clearly reflected in his composition and production skills. Check out his bio below:
OddKidOut (Butch Serianni) is a 21 year old West Philadelphia-based drummer and producer. He has been drumming since the age of 6, gaining a reputation in the Philadelphia music scene for his prodigious talents. The young virtuoso has also become a famous figure in the international digital media space for his drumming, production, and MPC skills.
At the age of 11, OddKidOut joined Philadelphia’s acclaimed School of Rock (five years ahead of the typical age for admission). Two years later, still only 13, he began touring locally as a drummer for rockers John Eddie and Jeffrey Gaines, further establishing OddKidOut’s placement in the Philly music scene. Throughout his ensuing teenage years, he worked with Grammy Award-winning producer David Ivory, soul singer Jaguar Wright, and members of Digable Planets, among others.
2016 was a big year for OddKidOut. Simultaneously while pursuing his education at Drexel University, the talented young OddKidOut released his autobiographical EP Within on his own label OddKidOut Records, LLC — a triumphant debut that featured past, present, and future Philadelphia legends as vocal guests. Further, he witnessed major coverage from Instagram’s official music account & blog (@Music), and closed deals with Adidas Asia, Chevy, HypeBeast, K-Swiss and an Artist Partnership with Native Instruments. To cap off 2016, OddKidOut released a remix of Columbia Records’ “Frenship – Capsize,” as well as signed to AWAL/Kobalt for distribution of his OddKidOut Records.
OddKidOut is starting 2017 off on a new path with his upcoming EP "Full Circle," with UK's neo-soul artist 1403 after becoming fed up hearing the neo-soul sound that Philly created, being played, distributed and celebrated in almost every corner of the world except its birthplace and his hometown, Philadelphia. Expressing this anger to his longtime friend, mentor, collaborator and executive producer of the Full Circle EP, Mitch Beer, Mitch suggested that OddKidOut do something about it and reclaim the neo-soul sound for his city.
East London based singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer '1403' has been something of an enigma over the past few years. Popping up in various guises writing and collaborating with artists such as Sasha, Disturbing London's G-FrSH and Cypress Hill to name a few, he has also contributed to various film scores and advertising campaigns across a wide range of genres and styles. Deciding it was time to emerge from the shadows, 2017 sees his introduction as an artist with a series of releases planned throughout the year.
