Kowton Bringing Unreleased Heat. One third of Bristol-London techno collective Livity Sound, alongside Peverelist and Asusu, Kowton explains his FACT mix – “music for dancefloors that stands up to repeat listening; rhythmic and repetitive tracks that are heavy but don’t shy away from detail. It’s mostly unreleased and I’ve tried as best possible to piece all these angular sounds together in a way that flows but also gives variation.” Listen above, and download here.
Slackk’s Climate Control Vol 1. The boss of Boxed and “scouser down south” Slackk celebrates Boxed teaming up with Local Action at Corsica Studios with an hour of the kind of cutting-edge UK sounds you’d be likely to hear at the night. Stream and download above, full track listing here.
