San Francisco-based Ozgood has been championing a panoply of musical styles for years as a DJ/producer/remixer and co-founder of the Afrolicious party and collective. During his DJ sets he navigates his dance floor through an eclectic mix of disco, funk, Latin and more. With original productions and remixes to his credit on Six Degrees Records and Akwaaba Records, this summer Ozgood unveiled “No Water No Life,” an infectious Afro-house collaboration with Yacouba Diarra. The track has now been put in the talented hands of legendary underground NYC house music stalwart DJ Romain. The Metro Trax label boss takes the jam into an even deeper direction, effortlessly juxtaposing his signature sound with the acoustic strings of Diarra’s n’goni (African harp). Listen to the world premiere below and be sure to pick up the remix when it’s released on September 30 on Mixto Music. If you’re in NYC on October 1, stop by the Metafunk! party at Studio 151 featuring Ozgood, Aaron DRM (Bastard Jazz) and FSQ (Soul Clap Records) on the decks.
