Producer, Songwriter, and DJ

OPIYO on SoundBetter

Record producer, songwriter, and DJ specializing in world dance music and creative sound design.

I am a record producer, songwriter, vocalist, and DJ with Kenyan and Jamaican roots (currently based in United States).

Although I am comfortable working with all modern musical styles, my current focus is bringing my unique cultural background to world dance music such as afrobeats, dancehall, latin pop, baile funk, and more! 🌍🎶

I am also interested in introducing dance music from around the world to film, TV, and other visual mediums. 🎥

I have a background in vocal performance combined with hands-on studio experience as a recording engineer and producer. This has contributed to a growing catalog of musical works to include:

"Just Keep Goin" by tobi lou, used in 632.7k TikTok videos ⭐️

In addition to my published work as producer behind the desk, I have also published DJ mixes that include my favorite musical styles blended with some original tracks of mine. 🎧

It was the first time that I was involved in every stage of a record; from recording the voice memo on my phone, to producing the instrumental around my demo vocals, to mixing the song myself. I proved to myself and others that I am comfortable doing whatever it takes to bring a song to life!

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: I like being able to take an idea from its demo phase to the final mastered release.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
