In some ways it’s a testament to the quality of music encapsulated on the short lived Stuff Records label, that Offshore caught our ear last year with his somewhat understated eponymous 12". His music fits with the jitterbug boom bap of Rustie whilst harnessing that electronic lilt that aligns him with so many of the current low end conscious dubstep crop.
Pouring elements of grime into his productions in the same manner as someone like say, Joker, he's on the edge of something really special; sparring of his cheap drum machine percussion and curating a sound that is utterly infused with his own personality – sampling his own voice or those of friends to give his work a humanized humour that mirrors the ridiculousness found in some of his melodic pitches.
We caught up with him after a stock pile of emails revealed he was down with what we do and would be kind enough to drop us an exclusive mix – which turned out to be one of the most low down and swaggered out installments we have had to date.
