Owsey

Owsey makes amazing post-dubstep music and gives it away for free

Owen Ferguson aka Owsey is responsible for some of the most forward thinking, evocative music we’ve ever heard. He’s a young Irish chap who makes what we guess you could call future garage or ambient dubstep or post-dubstep or something similarly silly. But why bother really? He makes electronic music that transcends boundaries and genres. It goes beyond dubstep and into something far more dreamy.

There’s a power within the music that evokes strikingly vivid images. You can really get lost in this music and it’s a blessing that there’s so much of it out there, including collabs with all our favs, like CoMa and Sorrow and Stumbleine.

Here’s a quote from an interview with Owsey about where he gets his inspiration from:

“There are a lot of answers to this question – anywhere & everywhere. I’ll jot down a few examples, such as: I might find a quote I like in a book, make a note of it & elaborate on it further down the line. I enjoy photography as I said, so I spend a fair amount of time looking through various photo sites. People, places, fiction & non-fiction.”

He’s also working on a new band project, according to his Soundcloud:

“A lot of sound being made behind the scenes: electric, acoustic, 12 string, lap steel guitars; vocal & harmonies, banjo, live drums, piano, traditional instruments, mics, amps & cabs, pedals, electronic sounds, new music rooms, new people, water & frequent surfs in the ocean.”

Can’t wait to hear the new record.
