Avant pop producer, composer and artist Wuh Oh has unveiled his latest hyperpop infused offering ‘Daddio’. The single follows Wuh Oh’s recent collaboration with The Magician on ‘Life’.
The infectious track embodies Wuh Oh’s signature experimentalist style, and laces disco synth sounds with glitch hop edits, creating a hyper modern clash of jubilant energy and off-kilter melodies. Today, also marks the release of the psychedelic official video directed by long-term collaborator Joe Crogan AKAZONES Productions.
Wuh Oh says: ‘Daddio was a creative breakthrough for me. Coming from the electronic underground scene in Glasgow, It was the most Pop I had ever gone with a Wuh Oh track. Creating my own idealised version of universal pop music has since become a major artistic pursuit of mine. So many hooks smash together to create one hyperactive whole, from the old school piano riff to the blaring synth line to the vocal, which I intended to land somewhere between The Beegees and Macy Gray but ended up sounding unavoidably me. This track just wants to help you feel better.
The music video was made by just myself and creative partner Joe, an extraordinary visual artist who operates as Zones Productions. With only fifty quid, in the upstairs room of a Glasgow pub, we shot the video. For the next few weeks we would chat nonsense for hours each day, throwing around ideas to make each other laugh. Joe then took the best of this inspiration and went to work creating the magical world and characters you see around me. Special shout out to Andrew Sutherland, an extremely talented Glasgow artist who kindly lent us wonderful masks he’d designed based off of childrens’ drawings.
