A man of multiple activities and genres, multi-talented veteran producer Todd Osborn uses more aliases than Jennifer Garner: whether he’s testing those jacking electronic knee Rephlexes, scattering dub ‘n bass into Soundmurderer hemispheres, tearing down the house with some slow-burning Osborne grooves, or moving all the Starski & Clutch booties (holla) into third gear, expect nothing but the unexpected. When he lectured at the Red Bull Music Academy in 2004, Todd explained how he uses a hexadecimal tracker running a whole load of analogue gear to make his gritty, grainy beats. And it’s exactly this kind of unique and personal approach to music that also informs his DJing performances. So reset your mind and expect a journey from sometime before WJLB to an oblique fractured future.
