RVLVR & Ben O’Neill – Stiff Upper Lip
Released December 1st 2017
We’re really excited to preview the first music from the forthcoming RVLVR & Ben O’Neill project, out December 1st.
You all should be familiar with RVLVR from his releases on this label, as well as Seclusiais and other imprints. However, Ben O’Neill may be a name you don’t recognize. Ben met James (aka RVLVR) when as undergrads at Philadelphia’s University of the Arts; so this project has been a long time in the making. For the past few years, O’Neill has been flexing his guitar skills on the road with the likes of John Legend, Jill Scott and Kanye West (amongst others).

The video of RVLVR’s live set for Philadelphia-based Podcast, Paper Box Sessions, is now available to view on YouTube (see below). RVLVR was joined by Starkey for the session which included music from the ‘Astral EP’ as well as some new material (including his remix for Oh! Pears forthcoming on ‘ONLYEMIXES Vol. 1’.
The duo also recorded an interview podcast which can be streamed/downloaded here. They discuss the Philly music scene, meeting back in the day, NOREMIXES and other topics.
