Kowton and Tom Dicicco present a split EP on Project Squared. Tom Dicicco’s original is driven by a low-mid range thick stab and pounding kick drum, littered with intricate but not overbearing hi hat and snare work and some very atmospheric mid range. Kowton’s is subtle and sparse, low fidelity and plodding, with rattling percusion carrying the tune along. On the other side of the record, Kowton’s remix of Tom’s original is driven by an enormous bassline, with an off kilter dubby feel to the slow tempo and genre defying tune. Tom’s remix of Kowton rounds off the EP with a return to stab driven Techno, pulsating, dynamic and trance inducing.
The first release on Ominira, a new German label, featuring three raw edged deeper house tracks with a softer soul and a solid straight on drive. Tracks bt Karrem Moser aka Kassem Mosse, Juniper and Kowton.
Taking the low end tradition of Bristol music and marrying it to a murky, swung 4/4 aesthetic, Kowton returns to Idle Hands with a 2 tracks EP. “She Don’t Jack” creeps into life with industrial textures before crisp, rigid claps and shuffled hits skip energetically around a bassline malevolent in its simplicity. “Drunk On Sunday” works drum machine grooves from the off, heading down a stripped-bare corridor of pitch-black house.
