You know this’ll be good… Kowton and Parris collaborating on a chunky slice of low-slung pulse and wobble. It's even called Deep Concentration, capturing a sense of how these masters must be at work. It's a collaborative track, but you get it in two versions, one mixed by each producer. 12” on Rubadub.
Kowton / Marshallito & Billebob
A beautiful thing here: the first flowering of a collaborative relationship between Bristol’s Happy Skull label and Berceuse Heroique. Representing the South-West, the erstwhile Kowton, with a very weighty roller. On the flip-side, Billiebob meets Marshallito for some funky dramatic action. Please note that this is a strictly limited vinyl edition, so only one copy per customer!
Livity Sound co-bossman Kowton returns to the 12” game after some time away (his last release was the full-length Utility album). The inventive techno don dips into a bit of rave on Pea Soup and heads to Detroit for Iodine, all filtered through his particular bouncy UK sensibility of course. 12” on Livity Sound Recordings.
Kowtown drops the very first full-length album of his long and prestigious career: this also marks the first full-length for the Livity Sound label he co-runs. Utility is perfectly named, with each track being precision-tuned for maximum dancefloor efficiency, though without losing the nuances and subtle details that make it deeply compelling as home-listening. Great work from a master of his own sound.
Bristol's Livity Sound drops bass resonator Kowton's latest slab of penetrating off-kilter techno, a duo of tunes that are simultaneously crushing and fresh. It seems that the London-based producer is steadily rising amongst the techno ranks, following recent remixes of his material by the likes of Surgeon and Karenn, this release paving the way between Somerset and Berghain.
Getting rather sweaty with Pev & Asuzu / Pev & Kowton. Surge (MMM remix) / Vapours (Pangaea remix) are two reworks for the Bristol based label. MMM open this one up and bring the peak time madness with an increasing level of intensity from the hench percussion, hectic bass line and ever-ascending synths. Pangaea stripes it back and straightens it out with some deep sea techno punishment. Out on 12" from Livity Sound Recordings.
