All Hail the return of Todd Osborn, affectionately known as Osborne to Spectral fans, or as Soundmurderer when he feels like it. Todd’s a man of many passions: aviation, refurbishing electron microscopes and bmx bikes, and not least of all, making shit tons of good music in every imaginable genre.
Outta Sight is pure magic, slinking percussion, string pads and a that piano melody that recalls everything from Aphexian rhapsodies to lost Paradise Garage classics. First appearing as a hidden track on Ghostly’s Idol Tryouts Two compilation, Outta Sight finally gets its proper due and just as the name says, its a new sound in its own right.
Not to be outdone, Osborne’s mate Luke Vibert (Rephlex, Warp) comes to the party in his Kerrier District clothes and ups the ante with a bubbling piece of disco cut-up like only he can do, creating an evocative mood with his stuttering vocal hooks and big beats. While the flip belongs to Todd and his producer partner-in-crime, James T. Cotton, together Voltron-ing it as TNT. L8 (pronounced “Late”) is summer jakbeat at its best.
