Review: Regular Hyperdubber Ossie comes back with this delectable single of neo-soul goodness on "Ignore", providing the perfect backdrop for Tilz's smooth delivery. In between the bluesy key stabs and whip-cracking drums, there's a perfect mixture of club dynamics and pop sensibilities, seemingly typifying the current tone that Hyperdub seems geared towards. "Find It" lets Ossie off the chain into a purely instrumental cut that gives him full scope to zoom in on those razor-sharp drums and bolster them with further layers, while the musical elements veer between chunky Moog basslines and plucked mandolins, and a whole lot more besides.

Review: Prodigious UK house producer Ossie follows up his excellent debut for Lightworks with a three track EP for Hyperdub. While the title track from the Lightworks release - "Tarantula" - had a gorgeous ravey sheen, "Set The Tone" pairs vocodered vocals and insouciant child-like cries of "ahhhh" - both of which float above a tough, percussive arrangement. Up next, "Power Of Love" takes on a more garage-esque hue, while the excellent "Moves" rounds off the release with a heady combination of neon-tinged HudMo style synths and panpot percussion. Big release from a big talent.

Review: It's been over a year since Ossie's last solo record, and he returns here in fine form on 2020 Vision. The first two tracks see him bring his group Black Orange Juice for two vocal cuts, "Supercali" which riffs on Mary Poppins (it's actually quite good, trust us) wrapping up UKF and African pop into one tidy package, and "Lovecrazy", which combines Andres style string sampling with a deep percussive workout. Up next, "Housedabass" combines layers of neon stabs over deep pads, taking the standard club template and riffing over it with joyful abandon. Not much has changed in a year, but that's just how we like it - highly recommended.
