For the last little while I've been exchanging tunes, ideas and feelings with UK producer and founding member of Shades of Grey, Owen Howells. Oddly he contacted me via soundcloud about doing some work and despite having yet to even begin anything (I'm still waiting on a trademark backwards vocal creep), the momentum he's building between his parties, label and releases has me all giddy to link in the fall. Described by IDJ Mag as "genre agnostic and forward thinking", his productions ignore traditional definitions of techno, deep & tech-house. Owen's percussive drive has a touch of pure creep which results in a fun yet uniquely grinding sound....this deadly combo can be found on a growing number of labels including Wunderkammer, Sounds of Juan, Muchiq, Brikbat, Shades of Grey, Zipped and Nutation. His latest You EP, out Monday on Trendy Mullet, features a personal favorite, Back 2 You, along with And Then I which between the original and DJ Da's mix, will stun even the weirdest mother fucker. So check this twisty head's growing catalogue and see why creep is the new black.
