Underground Sounds: Grand Analog's Odario

Posted by Christine Vu, 8 months, 1 week ago

Odario Williams is a modern renaissance man. He's a radio personality + album reviewer on CBC's Q, one of our fav DJs (find him at Drake One Fifty on most Saturdays) and he's also the front man of Grand Analog. Before his show w/ Grand Analog in the Underground, we get to know Odario better and pick the brain of one of Toronto's hip hop mainstays about mumble rap, beefs + The Beatles.

To honour International Women's Day, we chat with Wendy White, a New York-based female artist whom we admire and is currently part of our annual Drake One Fifty exhibition. Wendy opens up about ways in which her work echoes current political affairs and contemporary societal issues.
