Kowton Announces New 12"; Preview It Now
- Words: Leo Maymind
UK producer Kowton (a.k.a Joe Cowton) has been on a tear this year, serving up a healthy smattering of highly ambitious remixes and collaborations with fellow Bristol beatmeakers Pev and Julio Bashmore. For his next record, Cowton has readied a 12" to drop via his own Pale Fire vinyl imprint. Both sides of "H-Street" b/w "Helsinki Sunrise" find the producer digging deeper into a minimal, gritty sound, making good use of overdriven kicks and spare arrangements that leave the rhythmic interactions in full view. Below, Kowton's forthcoming record can be previewed ahead of its November 11 release date.
