Opolopo is the Yoruba word for "plenty", a word that best exemplifies the diversity of this production wizard and DJ's musical voyage. Whether it's house, boogie, broken beat, funk or soul, his compositions and productions are always uncompromising with a steady gaze on the horizon and a quick glance in the rear-view mirror.

Opolopo DJ:s from London to Tokyo. His sets span from funk, boogie and soul to various shades of house. From sweaty, stripped down and dirty, to uplifting and lush. All unified by his worship of The Groove.

Born in Hungary and raised in Sweden, he spent the early part of his creative development tagging along with a touring keyboardist father and listening to fusion and electronic records. Artists like Herbie Hancock, Jeff Lorber, Earth Wind & Fire, Quincy Jones, Jean-Michel Jarre, Isao Tomita, and Kraftwerk helped feed his ingenuity. The likes of George Clinton, Bootsy and General Caine infected him for life with the funk virus.

His music spans over two decades on labels such as Local Talk, JVC Japan, Z Records, Toolroom, Warner Brothers, Tru Thoughts, Sony/BMG, Defected and Especial Records. Collaborations/remixes include Grammy nominated vocalist Gregory Porter, Omar, Steve Arrington, Lisa Stansfield, Shaun Escoffery, Sandy Barber, The Sunburst Band, Mario Biondi, Azymuth, Jungle, Sylvester, Leroy Burgess, Roland Clark, Dexter Wansel and many more.

After spending eight months in Dubai as the first ever resident DJ and Music Director at a Four Seasons hotel, he's now back in Stockholm, touring the world and working on new material.

Opolopo made #4 on Traxsource's top 100 Soulful House Artists of 2015. 2019 saw him make #5 on Traxsource's top 100 Soul/Funk/Disco Artists and in 2021 he grabbed the #4 spot. He made #21 on the new "Traxsource Top 500 Artists of 2022" list and also scored 5 overall # 1s.

2023 project highlights so far:

A full length album with vocalist Angela Johnson for Reel People Music is planned for late 2024.

Remixes for Jungle, Kenny Thomas, Touch Of Class, High Fade, Sipho Gumede and The Celebrant.

A batch of remixes for Mother's Favorite child featuring vocalists like Robin S and Saeeda Wright are scheduled for later this year.
