Belgium’s ZBS Studio reached out to Mello Music Group about permission to do a video for Oddisee’s “The Blooming”. MMG of course was honored to have them interpret the song and apply their vision to the track. The resulting marriage of visual storytelling & instrumental perfection is a narrative work that tells the story of time’s passage in the life of a boy. The video was directed, shot, & edited by Tomasz Cibulla and Wojciech Drożdż of ZBS Studios in Belgium.
Filled with rich landscapes from Belgium’s countryside, smokey ambers, old typewriters, watches, clocks, and a father and son, The Blooming portrays life’s unfolding through the metaphor of time. Oddisee’s original track was last springs soundtrack to the rains and blooming growth of nature. Rich strings, bold piano, wood block, synth, flute, and snares that rest easy in the backdrop drive this instrumental track from Odd Seasons.
Check out my peeps Prose aka Steady & Efeks in their new double a-side video ‘For the love/What’s Love’ taken from the future classic album ‘Force of Habit‘ – There’s also a couple of tracks on there featuring myself on the cuts, check out ‘More Than Before’ below featuring Philadelphia’s Killer Rellik & Side Effect, I’m pretty happy with how my all-scratched chorus turned out!

On October the 25th 2010, Gregory Isaacs passed away at the young age of 59 in his South London home after a long battle with lung cancer. The man was a reggae legend, made music with all of Jamaica’s top producers & released albums through a period of 30 years. Below is one of my favourite Isaacs’ tracks. Gregory Isaacs R.I.P.
