On The Floor
Todd Osborn at RBMA Weekender Barcelona
The shapeshifting Detroit producer and DJ delivers an acid-tinged set at Nitsa during the RBMA Weekender Barcelona 2016.
Todd Osborn makes producing raw beats look like child’s play, whether it’s booty bass with a ’70s cop show theme, or dark brooding jungle as the Soundmurderer you wouldn’t want to meet down a dark alley, or even his classic acid-inspired house and techno tunes as Osborne. With his we-don’t-need-no-equipment-made-after-1987 attitude to music making, he has been known to raid charity stores and second-hand pound stretchers for old computers, before reassembling them into beat-bearing powerhouses. In stark contrast, his Live-enabled DJ sets cram in more directions than a crowd of crossroads, on a wayfaring journey that could lead you back home before you even realized you’d left.
