Born in Lagos to a Nigerian father and Kenyan mother, OLUGBENGA now resides in London’s East End after a childhood split between Nigeria and the Netherlands. His first taste of international attention came as one of the vocalists in dubstep/folk outfit Various Production whose 2006 album for XL Recordings (then home to Dizzee Rascal and Basement Jaxx) was one of the first dubstep releases to sell in five figures. He performed shows with Various Production all over the UK and Europe, often to crowds of thousands. A year ago OLUGBENGA was drafted into electronic pop/indie band Metronomy as a bassist/vocalist and was quickly asked to become a permanent member of the group.
