Who are DJ Odilon & 72 Soul?
With their weekly Re:Fresh! show on BRUZZ Radio, the duo connects the dots between old school hip hop and newer sounds, ranging from future beats to bass-heavy electronics. Odilon has been mixing and scratching over hip hop beats and soulful trap since the early 2000s, winning the IDA World DJ Championship in 2010. 'Timeless, soulful and lazy', as he loves to describe himself, 72 Soul has been active in the underground soul hop scene for over 15 years, under his current moniker, as well as Lazy Rebel or Pierre Citron – as a DJ, performer, producer and writer.
