Laurie 'Appleblim' Osbourne may have revved up his journey along the musical motorway with stints in early '90s NME favourites The Monsoon Bassoon. But it was a creative technology course at Uni that sparked this phase of his life into existence and saw the birth of Skull Disco, the legendary label he ran with Shackleton between 2005 and 2008. At early FWD>> and DMZ sessions Laurie and his crew would be first in last out, and it was links he forged at these night that got him a job working at Tempa Records. Since then he's released deep and deadly tunes on Skull Disco, Aus Music, and Ostgut Gut, launched his own Apple Pips label, and has been widely held responsible for propelling a techno-fuelled dubstep sound to the forefront of public consciousness: from his hometown and west country bass HQ, Bristol, all the way to Berlin and beyond. Zoop and again, zoop.
