Press & Feedback
Support from Deadbeat, Praveen (Braille, Sepalcure), James Zabelia, Nick Warren (Way Out West).
Every sound on the record is carefully rendered, lovingly placed and precisely mixed; Cowles evades the smokescreen of anonymity by making everything momentous and immense... Fading is like Autonomic techno: bathed in luxurious Detroit reverb but with a distinctly European ideal of precision and repetition.
Andrew Ryce - Resident Advisor
...Fading has utterly blown me away and made my life a whole lot better; exactly how an album should make you feel... It’s subtle, yet hugely engaging, and balances delicacy and power in an extraordinarily effective way.
Get Down Good
Coalescing the peripheries of dubstep, house, ambient and techno... Splendid musical atmospheres and his eye for detail.
...A dream soundtrack you’ll find yourself drifting through more than once in anticipation for that deep end ambiance we love and have come to expect from this man.
As Above, So Below
...a heavily chilled-out fusion of deep house and dub-techno seasoned with a sprinkle of garage and elevated by the inclusion of soulful vocals... Material of understated intensity and dynamism... The album shows Cowles to be a master craftsman first and foremost... A strong collection perfectly coiffed to appeal to devotees of dub-techno and deep house.
