artist, composer and experimental producer Wuh
Oh aka Peter Ferguson has released his highly anticipated new single ‘How
Do You Do It?’.
by an innovative video, the clip focuses on Wuh Oh portraying an array of
different characters into a fisheye lens, showing off his forward-thinking
style. Describing the concept of the video Wuh Oh says: ‘The idea behind the video was to channel the style of 90’s/00’s
fish-eye lens visuals made by the likes of Hype Williams and then crank up the
ridiculousness to the max. For example, in one clip we took the futuristic
metallic interiors typical of that era and made our own cheese grater version,
complete with cheddar falling around me. It’s just good fun, and that’s how it
single follows on from his recent tracks ‘Pretty Boy’ (which was remixed by no
other than Hudson Mohawke) and ‘Ziggy’ both of which were heavily supported by
BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong. Creatively
and sonically Wuh Oh takes inspiration from the likes of Chemical Brothers,
BJÖRK, Kanye West, Jai Paul, Daft Punk, and Dennis Sulta for his own inimitable
style which separates him from other artists and producers.
Oh has garnered widespread acclaim throughout his career so far. Aged just 15,
his music was played along with an interview on Radio 1’s Annie Mac show and he went on to release material on esteemed
producer Ryan Hemsworth’s
taste-making Canadian imprint ‘Secret Songs’.
previously performed on Vic Galloway’s BBC
Introducing Sessions, TRNSMT and Electric
Fields, Wuh Oh has recently completed a series of support shows with some
significant peers – including electronica giants Orbital, New York slo-mo funk pioneer Com Truise and legendary turntablist and experimental hip-hop
producer DJ Shadow.
Oh’s run of support appearances have allowed him to develop his own live show.
He’s gained recognition for his hyper-energetic live sets which see him merge
DJing, dexterous keyboard playing, self-styled interpretive dance and his
sugar-rush pop sound into something rewarding and unique. On stage he also
appears in flamboyant custom-made outfits which he creates with Glasgow School
recently been announced that Wuh Oh will be performing a special set at Live At
Leeds in May with many other exciting headline tour dates to be announced.
Oh’s eclectic new single ‘How Do You Do
It?’ is out now.
