The set from Bristol’s Pev & Kowton is an eagerly anticipated one this weekend. The duo is perhaps best known for their Raw Code b/w Junked 12″ on the Hessle Audio label from 2013 – two forward-looking slices of audio, aimed squarely at the dance floor.
However, they are also responsible for a slew of fine releases via their own Livity Sound imprint, their main focus over the last few years, where abstract rhythms coalesce with deep bass frequencies for a sound that’s authentically British and excitingly fresh.
Simply described, in their own words: ‘Record Label. UK Techno. Sound System Frequencies. Body Music.’ Livity Sound is uncompromising but not inaccessible, with real substance to the music – hidden depths for mind, body and soul.
Resident Advisor did a good interview a few years ago, which reveals something of the duo’s working methodology in the studio. See here. This twelve minute live jam recorded for RA in late 2013, with third Livity Sound wheel, Asusu is also fun.
But they’re actually playing a DJ set this Friday. No doubt the tremendous new Jinx / Scanners 12″ release on the label, from Forest Drive West, will get an outing. Scanners is no less of a gem on this 12 but isn’t up on YouTube yet. Check out its subliminal vibes in full on Bandcamp.
Either way, we can’t wait to hear what they’ve got in store for us!Blog, News
