Osbourne & Anderson is the musical bro-mance of Louis Osbourne & Jamie Anderson, two of underground dance music’s longest servants. Between them they have over 38 years DJing experience, have played thousands of gigs and have rocked the floor in almost every country with a dance music scene. Individually both these guys have been floor slaying DJ’s in their own right, now they have merged to form Osbourne & Anderson as a new ground breaking production team with a live DJ performance taken to another level!
Jamie Anderson is a world-class producer in his own right, having started the highly influential “Artform” label in the early 90’s and being credited as being one of the founding figures of Tech-House. Derrick May said Jamie has “elevated the sound of what Detroit was all about. He’s taken it to another level…” Jamie’s production repertoire spans a remarkable selection of imprints that reads like a who’s who of underground dance labels such as Cocoon, Rekids, Front Room, Dessous, 100% Pure, Harthouse, NRK, International DJ Gigolos and Rotation. Jamie also works under various pseudonyms including Idiotproof and Payme, further showing his range and dexterity. Remixes for Riva Starr, Armand Van Helden, X-Press 2, Dave Angel, The Hacker, Francois Dubois and Audio Bullys have expanded his appeal as an in-demand producer. So Jamie is the brains of this dynamic duo, now what about the brawn?
Louis Osbourne’s career has spanned almost two decades on the underground music scene. His ability to attract success as a DJ, label owner, producer and broadcaster has well and truly sealed his name an industry stalwart, but don’t let us simply persuade you with clichés - just listen to the facts. He’s held residencies at House of God (Birmingham), Café Mambo (Ibiza), Amnesia (Ibiza), and U60311 (Frankfurt). In 2008 he started his own imprint Mija Recordings, attracting a mixture of well-established artists and fresh new talent, the label has fast become an underground powerhouse. Capping it all off is a monthly radio show on Proton Radio; called ‘Mija presents…’, where Osbourne takes you on a two-hour journey through electronic music. Osbourne isn’t a man who needs to talk up his achievements; he doesn’t need to either… suppose he’s a bit like his infamous Father, Ozzy, in that respect.
Osbourne & Anderson met when Louis signed some of Jamie’s tracks for Mija in 2009. The guys then arranged a studio session and their first releases was quickly crafted and signed up by Jesse Rose for Front Room. Their “Rare Grooves EP” was released in spring 2010 and so ‘O & A’ had set off on their journey. Striking an immediate rapport in the studio remixes quickly followed for Jon Gurd on Mija and Tube & Berger’s “Fog Head” on Neurotraxx Deluxe, with the latter staying in Beatport’s Tech House top 10 for a month at the start of 2011. Their latest track “NoHo” has been quickly snapped up for Made To Play, and will drop in the fall of 2011. With more original productions and remixes in the can, you’ll be hearing more from Osbourne & Anderson on a system near you.
With a sound that incorporates Chicago, Techy and Deep House Osbourne & Anderson deliver the kind of slamming DJ sets that you’d expect from two Jackers with such history and credentials. On 4 decks, with a crate of exclusive O & A edits and mixes, their own productions and years of experience, quite simply… Osbourne & Anderson smash it!
