here are lots of stories about DJ and producer Todd Osborn (no e, mind you). They are, unfortunately for your ego and ours, all true. Our Lego-sculpting, electron microscope-owning, Japanese-speaking uber-producer puts his joy of life and the art of making into his music. Todd fixes and flies planes, has fabricated a video game kiosk out of hospital equipment, and is finishing his hovercraft as we write this. We could call him house music’s Macgyver,
but that would be obvious. I guess we just did.
Todd has been championed across the board, by everyone from Gilles Peterson to Aphex Twin (he records as Soundmurderer for his Rephlex label), from UR’s Mad Mike to Warp’s Flying Lotus. But such accolades should be taken lightly; after all, Todd just wants to have a little fun and get some time in on the dance floor. Like Todd, we should all get (more) busy.
“Osborne” (real name: Todd Osborn) is revealed in our interview video.
