KOWTON READIES DEBUT ALBUM - LISTEN TO 'SHOTS FIRED'



Written by Don't Panic

Kowton - Don't Panic's favourite Bristolian badman - has announced plans for a debut longplayer, set to drop on his own Livity Sound imprint on 15th April.

'Utility' will be the debut LP for both producer and label, and is billed to showcase Kowton's trademark blend of 'hypnotic rhythms, dramatic transitions and chest-rattling bass'. 

Speaking ahead of the album's release, the producer explains:

"The name ‘Utility’ came from a series of conversations I had in the build up to finishing the record; what feels most prescient to me right now is writing concise music with purpose and direction - visceral music that’s uncluttered both sonically and theoretically. I wanted to create an LP that works on the floor but is nuanced enough to justify repeat listens and self-aware enough to sit properly as a complete album.”

In the meantime, stream album track 'Shots Fired' below:
