Take electronica, mash it up with trip hop via jazz, funk and pop and you might find yourself in the electronic la-la land that is osh10 (aka Aimee Chapman). Starting with chameleon vocals, funked out bass, beats, synth and effects to create layers of sound that as quickly as they take a fragile and haunting path, will divert to the alternative dancefloor with grooves that borrow from dubstep, trip hop, 70s funk and beyond. With her album ‘One Hundred to the Ground’ released in July 2011, things have gotten busy for Miss Chapman. Osh10 closed out 2011 with tours of Japan, Denmark and France, osh10, the release of her remix album 'Heart:Disambiguated' in December– which featured remixes by the likes of DJ Soup (Editor, Miso) and Denmark’s Anders Bach (Birk Storm, Icecream Cathedral) before heading off on an end of year artist residency to develop new songs.
The past year has seen osh10 ramping it up even more, with a showcase at Adelaide’s Fuse Festival, a tour of the Western Australia, a second tour of Japan and a knuckling down to put the final touches on her second album due for release later in 2013.
‘You just cannot help but adore osh10, and the crowd made her known of that with cheers, laughter, applause and murmurs and nods of approval. Her talent, her sharp sense of rhythm, her vocal and her passionate outlook towards life inspired the crowd to go anywhere with her.’
-T-Squat.com ‘My Fave: My favorite this month is the unusual osh 10, that combines creative bass with the amazing vocals of Aimee Chapman. Using loops and effects, osh10 creates a full band sound. Her delivery is very much her own, but it is reminiscent of Bjork or Canada’s Ember Swift, and her lyrics are pure poetry, dealing with relationships and inner awareness rather than Swift’s social-consciousness. This is definitely a group to watch. She has toured Canada, and there is hope that osh10 will find her way to the States soon’- Skope Magazine
