The next edition of Three Cuts poses an interesting question: as an electronic music artist, what do you do when the phone stops ringing? It's something Laurie Osborne has been thinking about a lot of late. The success he enjoyed by running two highly respected labels—Skull Disco and Apple Pips—and producing music allowed him to DJ all over the world, enjoying the comforts (and trappings) that the lifestyle affords. But things have been more quiet recently. Osborne only released one 12-inch in the last couple of years and, all of a sudden, his bookings dropped off. It was time to reassess. As he looked forward to getting back in the studio and "starting again," Osborne charted this journey with his Three Cuts selection when we paid him a visit at his studio in Bristol.
