Having swapped his native urban Belgrade identity for aLondon one in the early 90s, Oggie B (Ognjen Bogdanovic) -a contemporary classical composer, keyboardist, sessionmusician, producer and DJ - has been a quiet presence onthe London underground house scene since his debutrelease on Strictly Rhythm in 1996 (Physique -Superman/Such A Joy). A string of productions and releasesunder various monickers have followed, includingcollaborations with Kinky Roland, Antoine 909, Cool HandsLuke, Princess Julia, Jeep Grrlz and others. A skillful,accomplished DJ known for his storming, energetic sets, heprefers to play, as once famously defined by Jon Marsh -"records he loves for people who want to dance", typically inthe smaller, more intimate venues of London and Belgrade,where his own vision of the true spirit and personality ofunderground house can really come to life.After a self-imposed hiatus, during which he devoted himselfmostly to modern classical music, he has now sprung intohouse action once again, having been exclusively signed toRoland Faber's new label, London-based Fetch Records, forwhich he has already provided a number of remixes and afour-track EP, "Red Gate Secrets", to be followed by moreoriginal and remixed material. His personal blend of funkytechy-tribally floor-friendly house music is occasionallydisco-tinged, but always decidedly housey, groovy anduplifting - with an ever-present dash of soulfulness, eitherthanks to a jazzy chord stab here or a well chosen vocalsnippet there. Expect to hear and enjoy a lot more in theseasons to come.
