Giving old skool UK Garage a new lease of life, Producer/artist OBSIDIAN CANE’s latest three-track EP, ‘Reset’ came along by complete chance…
The tracks on the EP were originally separate projects for three artists – Bryonii, I Am Born and Stacey Pierre. The plan to release the summer bangers came to a halt when the Covid-19 pandemic struck the UK back in March.
Obsidian explains: “My plan was to complete each project then go back to performing at live events. Then the world went into lockdown and everything changed. Music events were cancelled, clubs closed, and social distancing gave me some tough decisions to make. I had a serious discussion about quitting the music industry for good, but my music promoter convinced me the Covid-19 lockdown was the best time to release new music as a new artist. Since everything felt reset and new, I used that energy and produced the three songs and title the EP.”
‘Reset’ EP may be the first solo release from Obsidian Cane, a seemingly unknown artist, who received over 13,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, but he’s certainly no novice to the UK underground dance scene. The Londoner scored success with club hit (I Need A Rhythm) as Garage duo KP with UK Garage producer Paul Benjamin and has performed live at 51st State music festival as KP.
Away from his partner-in-crime Paul Benjamin, Obsidian has other projects up his sleeve: he has produced music for artist in development Warner, EMI and Parlophone, as well as producing music for popular TV shows, including Get Up Stand Up and EastEnders.
Looking at his impressive track record in the industry, it’s very safe to assume that you’ll be in good company with Obsidian’s ‘Reset’ EP.
Reset EP is now available on various download/streaming platforms.
