White lies for ears and eyes

It began with a Casio CTK-750, the unquantised techno and electronica making the jump to a Playstation® running Music a few years later. With the PS1, I started sampling crap synths, acoustic guitar and posting tracks on-line. People thought I was a band, and with the PS1 corrupting all the songs, 'Implosion Quintet' seemed suitable. IQ morphed into the ADHD 'genre-slam' material that centred on breaking through all stylistic barriers.

In 2014 I started 'Oddhoody', a full-circle return to the hip hop, dub and electro I began with. OH takes iMaschine sketches (often written on the Oslo underground) and pulls them into a decayed aesthetic. Fat, urban electronics with a hefty nod to the giant dub sound-systems of yore.
