Birmingham, United States
DJ and Drum and Bass producer Matthew McKinney (a.k.a. OSC1LL8R) combines the grit of his native Alabama with his advanced education in music to create tunes that are raw and defined. Heavily influenced by percussion, with an early stint as a standout in his high school's drum line, Matthew took his passion in another direction, honing his skills at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in music with a concentration in music technology. Not content to rest on those accomplishments, he took things further, earning a Master’s of Science in Music Technology from Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis. He is currently adjunct professor of Music Technology and head of recording and production in the department of music at the University of Montevallo.
