In October 2011, OD Hunte signed a publishing deal with Levels/EMI music publishing. and many other unsigned artists.
Trinidadian-born producer/songwriter OD Hunte owes his start in music production in part to the famed producer Teddy Riley. Hunte had already been writing songs for several years when he moved to the United Kingdom, but it wasn’t until a friend handed him a DAT of outtakes of the Bobby Brown “Two Can Play That Game” master that he began to really become interested in the art of production.
After graduating with a Physics and Modern Acoustics Degree from the University of Surrey in Guildford, Hunte became one of the first producers in the UK to start selling sample CDs internationally and the resulting Freekee Jack Swing and 96th Street were calling cards for his introduction to LA-based Extreme Music, one of the largest publishers in TV and film, including commercials. OD went on to produce an album and several tracks for the company.
