Music by IB Odd (also previously referred to as IB Odd Vegger) is warm, tropical, danceable and fun with tons of style and zero pretense. He mixes and performs music in the soca, funk, coupe decale, zoblazo, and funana genres, most of which come from sunny, tropical locales such as the Caribbean, Cape Verde and the Ivory Coast of Africa.
IB Odd, who hails from Stockholm, Sweden, cites as main artistic influences DJ Arafat, Kaysha, Bunji Garlin, Prince, Morris Day and the Time, Meiway, Soum Bill, Machel Montano, and the Bar-Kays. His music takes many of the best traits of these and boils them down into a sound that is largely island-inspired in tone and feel, but with a European gloss that makes a finished product all his own.
One of few bios available in English from IB Odd reads: “I’m currently a student at Songwriters Academy (musikmakarna)
A quick glance through photos and videos online of IB Odd's live performances showcase him as a charismatic and crowd-friendly front man who interacts with music fans and loves his sound.
“Coconut Rum” by IB Odd is available online worldwide beginning 20 March 2014.
