## OSB (formerly 1-Speed Bike)
1-Speed Bike is the DJ and mobile sound system alter-ego of Aidan Girt, drummer for Montreal-based bands Exhaust and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Making his first appearance remixing tracks on an ancient 12-bit AKAI sampler for Exhaust’s debut record, 1-Speed Bike went on to build a large sample bank sourced from his own live drumming and made a full-length album (Droopy Butt Begone!, with full 16-bit resolution) for Constellation Records in 2000. He has also moshed things up at numerous street actions and benefits over the years, and went on to release a series of records on Brooklyn Beats. Aidan was a member of the Montreal Bookstore collective and lived in Amsterdam for a while before settling into a cabin in the woods outside Montreal, where he continues to speed things up and slow things down at his home studio.
