After a remarkable 2023 marked by a meteoric rise in the music industry, including a Grammy recognition for his contribution to Davido’s chart-topping hit “Unavailable” featuring Musa Keys, Logos Olori is poised to make an even more enduring impact with his highly anticipated EP, Olori. The 7-track progressive and experimental medley showcases Logos’ DIY spirit, with him serving as the sole writer and performer.
Listeners are lured further into his sonic universe with each track, an entrancing experience filled with a mixture of lucid and dreamy synths alongside the afropop nuances that catapulted this breakthrough artist to recognition. His addictive melodies flow effortlessly, crafting a sincere narrative that mirrors the peaks and valleys of Logos’ recent years—a period marked by his departure from the familiar streets of Ajegunle, Lagos, to his sojourn in Dubai, only to return to Lagos and secure a pivotal signing under Davido’s DMW imprint. Notably, he was later featured on Davido’s Timeless album, marking a significant milestone in his musical journey.
Speaking on his debut EP, Logos says, “Like water life flows, ever changing while taking different shapes and circumstances on a journey. We are Free and the aim is to always be free. Join me on this Journey as we travel deep within ourselves while experiencing the bliss of the vibrations of every tone. From the drums of APAPA to the sweet Chords of Olori. Every song is an experience in itself. This is Logos Olori, The free.”
On Olori, each track unfolds like a page torn from Logos’ personal diary, weaving a tapestry of diverse tales and showcasing profound personal growth. This attests to Logos’ remarkable ability to craft a sonic universe uniquely his own. The EP commences with the title track, “Olori,” where Logos bares his soul, the emotive strings intensifying the overwhelming desire for a significant other. “Easy On Me,” featuring Davido, sets the stage for a captivating nocturnal club atmosphere, seamlessly blending Logos’ distinctive sound with Davido’s style. Following this is the amapiano-infused “Push It,” poised to be an instant fan favourite, and “My Darling,” where Logos delves into his expressive depths. “Apapa” and “Hmm Hmm,” featuring Musa Keys, introduce a new dimension to the project, offering fresh and vibrant joints. The EP culminates with “Murder,” bringing listeners full circle in this musical journey, encapsulating a range of feelings and experiences.
