He was always and still is inspired by great bands such as Sublime, Nirvana, Bob Marley and many more! While studying music in Holland with Sharen Singh (Bass), they immediately started sharing their love for reggae music. Jamming together whenever they got the chance. Finally Vincent got introduced to Guido Van de Wijdeven (Drums) and together they formed “OFFSHORE” Now existing for almost 3 years they have grown from three members to six. Daniel with his crazy keyboard skills joined the crew, so did Vince's long time friend Aymar on guitar.
And to add a bit more flavor to their sound Simon who is good friend of guido also joined in with his Saxophone making their trademark mixes even fatter! 2. Multi-talented Ewan Robertson, a.k.a. Offshore, makes deeply emotional electronic music. The celebrated graphic designer's first release came on the legendary Scottish label Stuff, leading him to be tied into the scene of Scottish beatmakers spearheaded by Rustie and Hudson Mohawke.
Robertson's work, though, perhaps owes as much to the moors, mountains and even folk tunes of his home country as it does to hip hop and inner city London, where he now lives. Offshore is signed to Big Dada; his début album due for release in May 2011. Bass-heavy, packed with detail and an ear for melody, this is the next wave of Cale(donian)-funk: "all the minimalist might of prime Neptunes productions with the flattened crunk of fellow Scot Rustie" (FACT).
