About the OPUS
Oak Park, IL
Comprised of Mr. Echoes a.k.a. Fanum, and The Isle of Weight, two instrumentalists that combine their haunting styles with penetrating sounds and irrefutably synchronized collaboration. After working individually for some time, the two producers decided to enhance their talents by collaborating their styles of production. Shortly after, Mr. Echoes and The Isle of Weight ventured into prospective projects with several lyricists to compliment their instrumentals. In a search to find lyricists to match the eerie yet mesmerizing sounds of The Opus, Mr. Echoes and The Isle of Weight discovered the talents of Meta Mo and Lumba, together known as the group, Rubberoom. Together with The Opus heart- wrenching beats combined with Rubberoom's double-edged swords for tongues, the collaboration evolved into a wild success. This collaboration marked the pioneering of stage performances so explosive, the atmosphere could be compared to nothing less than an insane asylum. The collaborations include four twelve-inch singles, a CD five, an EP, and an album. The EP, Gothic Architecture, was the beginning of a saga that continued with the group's subsequent album, Architechnology. Segments of Architechnology were displayed on MTV's Road Rules and also used in the X Games. Architechnology received national recognition, and ultimately became the product of a global record deal. The Opus has also been involved with a number of other artists such as Earatik Statik, Pigeon John, I Self Devine (From the Micronots), Aesop Rock, Murs, Slug (from the group Atmosphere). In working alongside various artists that convey ingenuity and innovation throughout their work, The Opus ultimate goal is to retain the originality that listeners have raved about since their first exposure to the production team's intricate and innovative style.
