Oscillate Live presents: Shed Some Light Live at The Commons

Oscillate Live brings local turntablist and music collector Bobby Skillz to our cafe to demonstrate the critical relationship between rare samples in hip-hop culture, highlighting the interplay between traditional influence, modern music, and street culture.

'Shed Some Light,' a CD series led by Bobby Skillz and produced by Komplikated, emerged from Colchester's vibrant community of record collectors, producers, graffiti artists, and breakers. This collective propelled experimentation in vinyl culture to the forefront of the local scene, fostering an environment for new talent across genres to thrive alongside the established and expand beyond the town.

With its deep roots in Colchester's underground music heritage, 'Shed Some Light' continues to influence the scene, inviting you to discover the secrets behind the beats that move them – live at The Commons!
