If you know what “OFWGKTA” stands for, you either know an avid texter, or you live for the thrill of soul-pumping beats. The lengthy acronym belongs to the eclectic, alternative Hip Hop group called, “Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All” from Los Angeles. Their sound joins the ranks of groups defining the music of a generation.
Lead by Tyler: The Creator, the group took off in 2007, but it’s not just one band. Odd Future is compiled of different subgroups like “The Jet Age of Tomorrow,” and “MellowHype.” Odd Future shows off the talents of ten eclectic artists from Los Angeles, including Syd the Kyd, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Left Brain, Jasper Loc, Mike G, and Matt Martian. The group’s success grew exponentially over the last five years with their internet fan base spilling over into crowded venues like London’s “The Drop,” Southern California’s “The House of Blues,” and the annual master-bands weekend, Coachella.
Loyal Studios and their production crews shot the pilot episode of Loiters Squad in the pre-lit HD greenscreen studio in Burbank California, combining SONY HD camera systems with the 1000 watt playback system that is built into the studio.
True to feeding the voracious viewers with slightly weird, unique, and unconventional animated or live action entertainment, Adult Swim will add Odd Future to the mix with “Loiter’s Squad.” The show will feature sketch comedies, pranks, and skits all calling Shenanigans that fans of Adult Swim have come to love.
