Body in the Thames and Dave Smith Instruments OB-6
In this Spotlight interview, Dave Smith Instruments interviews Body in the Thames and highlights his use of the Dave Smith Instruments OB-6.
Born in Manchester, lived 8 years in London, 2 years in Paris and now 13 years in Stockholm, Body in the Thames is quite the journeyman. From composing jingles for Microsoft CD-ROMs, to soundtracking Haute-Couture catwalk shows to playing in stoner rock garage bands with (then) future stars, to being a multi-instrumentalist on tour with well-established international stars, he is an artist who has been around the block enough times that he doesn’t need to namedrop any more.
Now a little older and more of a studiohead, he has spent the last few years in an actual former cold-war nuclear bunker under the Stockholm streets, crafting and releasing electronic explorations that cover a fairly broad range of genres and sub-genres which are mainly instrumental and “aimed at the dancefloor between your ears.”
In May of this year, he acquired an OB-6. We chatted with him about how he’s using it.
