Original Swimming Party (OSP) are an audio-visual group from Cape Town, South Africa. They draw influence from an African tradition of rhythm and harmony merged with elements of left-field electronica.

The lineup is Jeremy de Tolly (vocals, synths) & Tom Glendinning (Ableton Live, Live Visuals). They produce, mix and master their own work and between them provide extra instrumentation such as guitar, piano, synthesizer, live drums & percussion as well as field recordings and custom coding of their own audio & visual devices.

Their live show includes projected visuals that tightly integrate with the music via MIDI & audio sync. They work behind the scenes to create their own visual material through design, code & film as well as sourcing beautiful content from world-class collaborators.
