Underdog Music’s Co-Founder Oliver “Big Papa” Harvey Talks Industry And His New Beat Tape “The Underdogs”

We were interested in talking to the man they call ‘Big Papa’, producer manager, co-founder of the platinum production and development company Underdog Music and now co-producer of the beat tape “The Underdogs.

Papa agreed to talk with us via zoom, showing up looking sharp in a shirt and blazer with his signature hat. Papa definitely looks the part of a manager and when we asked him about his signature look he told us that he was going for something of an oil baron style, we think he nailed it.

Eager to know more about “The Underdogs” beat tape, we dived straight in and asked Papa about it’s origins “Well we had all been working together for a while on various projects and thought that it would be fun to create something that is just ourselves. It was a real labour of love with everyone chipping in ideas, we wanted to create something that showcased each of our talents all while having fun with it and enjoying the process”. After listening to the tape ourselves it is definitely a well put together mix of sounds from sad guitars to bouncy synths and hard hitting 808’s.

Big Papa as he has come to be known by colleagues and people throughout the industry manages a number of producers, many of whom have cuts with major artists and platinum plaques to their names. We asked Papa how he came to make a beat tape, something that you would think to be reserved for the producers and not their manager. “Of course i’m in the studio with these guys pretty much everyday so throughout the process of managing projects you get to learn a thing or two about music production and writing. King Wizard is a big creative inspiration and wants everyone in the room to be involved as he believes that collaboration with others is the key to making quality music”

It was a pleasure speaking with Big Papa about his beat tape, if you want to check it out yourself you can find “The Underdogs” on most streaming platforms. We are excited to follow Big Papa’s journey along with King Wizard and the rest of the team at Underdog Music. You can follow Papa via his Instagram page @bigpapaharvey for more information on his producers and Underdog Music along with snippets of upcoming releases.
