"Obscotch to release Miasma Eden
1st September 2011
Perth's own electronic sound surgeon Obscotch (Jake Moore) is once again breaking down genre boundaries and reinventing his sound with his new EP Miasma Eden. The complex combination of sound and suggestion carries all his usual hallmarks, while branching out into new fields. Taking cues from classic hip hop, intricate glitch and heavy dub, it’s bound to please old fans and delight new ones.
Last year saw the release of Samael Makaw, a dark EP of meticulously programmed rhythms and organic textures, which received airplay on Perth's RTRfm and Brisbane’s 4ZzZfm. In November he played a live set on RTRfm’s Ambient Zone and released Obscotch - Live at The Bakery, recorded as part of Warp Chamber II.
2011 has been a year of collaboration. In February, Obscotch worked with Melbourne arts group Cost of Horror, producing an ambient, deliciously moody soundtrack for the Dreams Never End exhibition, which he describes as a sort of ‘audible painting’.
He recently performed at the Velvet Lounge as part of an event hosted by Perth label Pineapple Lounge Records, giving audiences a taste of his weird interpretation of dubstep. His work will be featured on their upcoming compilation.
He has also teamed up with performance poetry renegade Belowsky, and together they’ve produced the anthemic track ‘The Contender’, with a music video in the works. Obscotch will be joining Belowsky during his one-man show at His Majesty’s Theatre across four nights in August.
Be sure to listen out for Miasma Eden on RTRfm, and keep an eye out for the Budka music video on Rage, which is also available online. For the video, Jake collaborated with filmmaker Timothy John Sharp and the Perth City BBoys to create an abstract representation of the track’s hybrid dub and hip-hop beats.
