“It’s amazing what 2-step sounds like at this tempo - tense, sweaty, claustrophobic - and that it works so well is just reward for Kowton’s dark, daring approach.” - Resident Advisor

Do you like to DANCE? How about to hollowed out, crushed drum machine mutations that take the blueprint of UK techno and draw all over it in a thick red marker? Well we g o t y o u, esteemed Livity Sound label boss Kowton has made a name for himself over the past few years releasing a steady stream of innovative and heavyweight dancefloor material that takes equal influence from techno, house and UK sound system culture. Aside from his work on Livity he’s released on Hemlock (the gang that discovered James Blake) Hotflush (home to Mount Kimbie and more) and R&S… well, R&S are one of the best electronic music labels of 'all time'. #tru

The last few years have seen Kowton releasing a triad of solo work, and collaborations with Julio Bashmore, and a consistently A+ output with his partner in crime Peverelist, crafting gutting, bruising baselines for the snaking groove merchants of Bristol. The massive 'Beneath Radar', more than anything else, paints Kowton as the cities fastest rising star over an ever growing amount of peers.

Boiler Rooms, Fact Mixes, and slots at every festival worth it's salt have defined the last few years of Kowtons existence, and somehow..on a remix tip, he's dropped official remixes for Scottish stadium darlings Chvrches, rubbed his distorted handclaps and shrieking string work over Maya Jane Cole & Surgeon, and constructed a groundbreaking remix for Surgeon, with tape distortion so thickly applied you can almost hear it, before dipping into delirious pockets of behemoth club-subs. #standard

‘..a narco-nautical groove where subbass blackens the waters like squid ink and snares cut the flesh like coral, and when that thunderous bass drops in over smears of tape-saturated echo, the intensity of the original is magnified several-fold, to stunning effect. ~ Boomkat on 'Beneath Radar'
