Osiris Music uk's latest release comes from Killawatt, who steps up to deliver a jarring pair of tracks which further blur the boundaries of techno and bass music. Counting the likes of Amon Tobin, Eskmo, Marcell Dettman, Regis and Mika Vainio as his influences, Killawatt never allows his production concepts to stagnate the increasing techno-hybrid presence in his beats.
Kicking off with 'Press On', a 4x4 backbone propels the tune with assistance from a sonically punishing kick and bass stabs. It's a largely percussive affair which should please fans of techno as well as bass music heads. Don't let the intro of the flip 'Tantra' fool you – the dreamy, floating intro soon makes way for an intense bassline and tribal percussion.
Killawatt’s music has been supported by the likes of Skream and Benga on BBC Radio 1, J:Kenzo on 1xtra, Hatcha on Kiss FM as well as Mala, Joe Nice, Youngsta, Distance and N-Type on their legendary Rinse FM segments. He's also a busy DJ, gracing the decks of events and clubs all around the UK including FWD, Cable, Corsica Studios and Vagabondz as well as international bookings cropping up as far afield as the USA, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Croatia, Slovenia and Holland.
