As Offshore, Robertson released music on Big Dada, including two EPs and this year’s mini-album Bake Haus. Robertson was also heavily involved in the visual art component of the label, establishing his own design studio called Oscar & Ewan in partnership with Oscar Bauer. He designed the covers for Wiley’s Playtime Is Over, Roots Manuva’s Slime & Reason, and Bonobo’s Black Sands.
An announcement on the Big Dada website reads:
An incredibly subtle man, part of his talent was to make difficult things look easy. His recent record, Bake Haus, was one such example, apparently thrown off without breaking a sweat, but actually the result of considerable thought and skill – the minimalism a deliberate choice, beautifully delivered on. He was also, in addition to his many talents, one of the finest individuals we have had the honour of working with – straightforward, positive, funny and understated, he was a proper gent.
