Mama Odé
Tales And Patterns Of The Maroons
Five Easy Pieces
Catalogue Number
Release Date
October 2, 2020


Peckham brothers Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Jeen Bassa release Tales And Patterns Of the Maroons under their combined Mama Odé moniker. The LP distils precisely what lies at the heart of hip-hop, as the duo meditate on lost roots and white-washed cultures across jazzy beats. East Coast hip-hop’s cerebral wordplay and production looms large across the likes of ‘Creole Brothers’, as bars unfurl in mixed UK English and Creole dialects, while ‘Typik Morisien’ call-out intersectional struggles without straying an unflinching eye from the optimism of a better tomorrow. This LP feels like a vital document of post-coloniality in the British Isles today.
