Introducing: Miss OG.
Miss OG is a female DJ and Radio host specialising in Grime, Hip Hop, RnB and that underground flavour. Born and bred is Manchester, Miss OG is something of a prodigy. Since discovering her passion for music and submerging herself in the underground scene for as long as she can remember, she has recently been in the studio sprinkling her magic touch creating mixes that bring floor-filling kineticism to any club scene.
After working in Manchester’s music scene since her teenage years, Miss OG has recently been the presenter of a popular weekly Drive Time show at Manchester’s Unity radio, interviewing the freshest starts such as Afrobeats artists Diamond Platnumz. She has also recently worked with Global’s Capital Xtra’s Music Potential Project, where she supported artists including, Raye, Lisa Maffia & Fuse at KOKO’s, Camden.
She is now finally back to doing what she knows best, creating tracks which mix bass aesthetics with gritty melodies. Her tracks capture the very essence of sliced samples, classic melodic afrobeat, hip hop and r’n’b tracks all entwined together and repurposed into a new manchester sound.
Miss OG is definitely a strong contender in the field, and is 100% not afraid to stand up for what she is passionate about. Her transparency and authenticity will be the driving force for her progression within the urban scene. She continually, and probably always will, refuse to associate herself with producers, record labels, and industry professionals who still condone airbrushing within any artist content. After a long overdue catchup, I recently met up with Miss OG and this is what she had to say regarding the massively conversational matter:
“Music was always blasting in the O’Grady household, so eclectic, from the sounds of Aaliyah to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, music had no limits and this remains true to Miss Og’s heart to date. She still falls in love with the purest sounds in every genre.”
Miss OG on inspiration: “My God, music has been my life” – said in her trusty Manc accent. “But my music has kept me dreaming big. Growing up on an estate I’d literally stay in playing and pausing songs just so I could learn the lyrics as quickly as possibly, instead of getting in trouble on the streets. And then once high school hit, and all the troubles that came with that, music was my only outlet that gave me a way out of the stress”.
Still working closely with both Capital Xtra and Beat Bazzar, Miss OG’s raw mixes are available on Mixcloud. With a bunch of opportunities in front of her, Miss OG is definitely one to watch out for in 2018, as a strong, independent woman, it seems only fitting that this artist has something in the pipeline so stay tuned:
