Bobby Dowell revels in the obscure and the darkness. He delivers a sound devoid of form, while embracing the traditional canvas of the most notorious of time signatures. One could say, he delights in the “different drummer.” The sound is dark and decadent, while creating a living, breathing human element that one could only describe as a soul. [Source]

Indiana’s Kyle Geiger joins forces once again with fellow compatriot Bobby Dowell to deliver two new tracks for Sutter Cane’s Driving Forces label. Remixes from Jerome Sydenham and Marco Bailey with Tom Hades complete the ‘Memory To Control EP’. Kyle Geiger’s quick rise in the international dance scene is due to both his production prowess and his explosive decks and effects DJ sets. Originally inspired by the harder, percussive styling of late 90′s Swedish techno on labels like Drumcode and Code Red, Kyle has witnessed the evolution of the genre into a more accessible, groove based sound. Still loving the energy and power of the earlier phases while embracing the genre’s changes, Kyle has refined his productions, with highly regarded releases on the likes of Drumcode, MB Elektronics and Perc Trax. Bobby Dowell revels in the obscure and the darkness. He delivers a sound devoid of form, while embracing the traditional canvas of the most notorious of time signatures. One could say he delights in the “different drummer.” The sound is dark and decadent, while creating a living, breathing human element that one could only describe as soul. He rarely escapes his own studio, releasing on labels like Droid, Perc Trax, and SlapJaxx, as well as these occasional collaborations with Kyle Geiger. Their original versions of ‘Just a Memory’ and ‘CNTRL’ combine both their styles perfectly, creating two powerful, groove-fuelled workouts. [Source]
After a lengthy hiatus, The Librarian returns with another bittersweet love song entitled Slow. Beginning from a dark and desperate wasteland, Slow finds its soul through melancholic horn stabs and melodic guitars. The journey is undying, victorious love only found in the warming surrender of inhibitions. Embracing passion to the incessant tapping of a drum. Born from the storm, Ellie Herring plunges into the depths of the beat and concocts a maelstrom of passion. As the bass rumbles and pushes, the voices pulse, and the frenetic clicks swarm. A true anthem, as if she knows all too well the power of love. [Source]
