I first saw Grouch in a mega 4 hour set at Cosmogenesis in The Orange Free State. What a wonderful blast!
Grouch encompasses the audible tales of producer Oscar Allison. born and raised in the breathtaking surrounds of Aotearoa New Zealand, the incredible backdrop infused and ignited a passion for dub and ethnic percussion which would later form the basis for his electronic journeys.
Experimenting with electronic music since the late 90’s, testing the waters of Dub, Hip Hop and Drum and Bass before discovering a talent for more Dance orientated productions. Grouch’s more recent years led him to spend extended periods travelling all around the Globe, travelling for 4 years non stop which led him to some of his career highlights performing to crowds in Brazil at festivals such as Universo Paralello, Boom festival in Portugal, Ozora in Hungary, Doof Festival in Israel and countless other shows all across 5 continents of the globe.
This endless expanse of life experience’s are all dropped into the melting pot of inspiration where grouch now experiments with various genre’s and structures, all of them encompassing an original and unmistakable essence which has seen an amazing reaction from people all around the world, leading him to be one of the most in demand producers on the alternative electronic music scene today.
Currently working on a full length album of his signature dub and bass music styles, his second project ‘Grouch in Dub’ is due to launch officially in 2017
