“The name, to me, represents the magic that comes from happy accidents, the music that I could never intentionally create.” That’s how Peter Ferguson, aka Wuh Oh, describes his moniker, and it’s a remark no doubt backed by those who have been lucky enough to catch the young Bathgate-born beatmaker practice his sample-rich wizardry over the past couple of years.
By painting nu jazz and electronic broad strokes on a hip hop canvass, the classically trained multi-instrumentalist plies together the seemingly incongruous for a sound both unique and otherworldly which Franz Ferdinand's Paul Thomson has likened to 'J Dilla on Irn Bru'!
Releases may be thin on the ground, but the hype surrounding Wuh Oh is completely justified. Having acquired an almost cult following through his explosive live shows (he recently headlined King Tuts and also supported DJ Shadow last year), his brand of joyous, sample-sexy beats have got the crowd going wild. He can also count tastemakers like LuckyMe’s Eclair Fifi and Ryan Hemsworth as fans – the latter inviting Wuh Oh to release the ridiculously popular ‘Wolverines’ on his Secret Songs platform.
While Wuh Oh readies his second single for Secret Songs and carefully considers his next several releases, the only way to experience the producer's wealth of unreleased material is to catch him in the flesh. His upcoming support slots with Happy Meals (24/02) and Onra (22/03) are a great opportunity to do so.
Kid Trench is a singer, songwriter and producer from Newry, Northern Ireland. He has played extensively around the UK and Ireland for the past year and has just performed his second BBC Introducing session fresh from supporting Sophie Ellis-Bextor in Glasgow. He has received significant blog attention including glowing reviews from 'Crack on the Road' and 'Going Solo'. Kid Trench is currently in the studio recording new music and will release his debut E.P. at the beginning of 2017.
