Osborne is Todd Osborn, and this is his debut full-length release for the Spectral Sound label. Osborne is a celebration of all that is good in American house and techno music: past, present and future. This Lego-sculpting, electron microscope-owning, Japanese speaking über-producer puts the 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. Like a personal sketchbook of Todd's musical history, the album evokes the sensation of an electronic yesteryear, where dance music production was treated with a wide-eyed sense of discovery. The tracks "Ruling," "Outta Sight" and "Afrika" are strutting dance epics, but the album also shows a side of Todd that is geared more for the homefront too. Todd has been championed across the board from Gilles Peterson to Aphex Twin (he records as Soundmurderer for his Rephlex label), from UR's Mad Mike to Warp's Flying Lotus. This album, written on his own music software on a hand-built computer, is testament to a life of walking the walk.
