Bio

After years of honing his craft, Wollongong based songwriter, producer and composer, Obseen AKA James Guido is no rookie to the music world. Having taken his music internationally in 2016 and being featured by major artists, Obseen released a string of collaborative singles in 2017 which took a share of charting success on triple J’s unearthed and received unmissable media attention from outlets such as Earmilk, Pilerats, Semplesize and Acid Stag propelling Obseen into 2018.

As a reaction to the over production and popularity of Future Bass music, Obseen changed tact and introduced the sounds of his roots releasing “I Don’t Care”, the lead single from his Debut EP “Envy Me” which was released in 2018. This EP was the first of Obseen’s releases to contain both his Vocal and Guitar virtuosity. I Don’t Care went on to break the Viral 50 charts climbing to #36 whilst being added to several editorial playlists. These successes continued for Obseen, the Debut EP notching 250k streams on Spotify alone whilst paving the way for a short east coast tour. His “velvety falsetto sure to be the driving force that launches him into the stratosphere” [Dancing Astronaut 2018].

In early 2019 Obseen was asked to play at Farmer & The Owl Festival supporting Hockey Dad and Beach House. Debuting his new live set and addition of live band and has been described his "Huge sound" as a “A tough act to follow”. After completing his Bachelor of Music in Composition and Music Production and several appearances in 2019, we can expect to see another game changing release on the horizon for this young producer.

Equal parts catchy and sad, but this groove got me moooovin. Nice one from this Bowral boi, can see him playing an intimate gig or a huge amphitheater.

You gotta buckle up for that moment that Obseen propels to the chorus - it's heavy on the 'bumps.
