Part of the 47 takeover
Since arriving on the scene way back in 2010, Portsmouth-based producer Killawatt has seen his profile grow alongside a string of quality releases on some much revered labels; including Tempa, Osiris, Lion Charge and 47. His relatively recent transition into techno from his dubstep oriented roots have brought an increased level of sophistication and complexity to his productions, often providing much more than a standard four to the floor beat. His influences can be heard throughout his music, with dark, brooding bass colliding with intricate, painstakingly crafted top end. It’s clear that Killawatt produces music with an incredibly adept ear for the most minuscule of details, he manages to do much more than simply engage the listener, preferring rather to immerse them.
His four selections for Tracks Of The Day introduce us to some of the most interesting corners in the techno world. With contributions from the likes of Shackleton, Mønic, Room 506 and Terence Fixmer he guides us through four memories from previous 47 nights. There are some truly choice cuts in there; incredibly dark textures abound, each track is hugely evocative.
