In session this week on Mantis Radio – Killawatt.
His is a sound of heavy pressure – a continuance from his early dubstep productions – melded into the techno hybrids he releases today. Did you know that Killawatt’s Matt Watt has published works on the psychological & physiological effects of high intensity low frequencies on the human body?
In addition to his low-end theorem explorations he’s just signed to audio visual agency Derelicht.
Watt’s rise was quick in the dubstep scene – finding support for his dubstep/tech crossover approach from scene leaders Youngsta, Kryptic Minds, Icicle and V.I.V.E.K. – he’s played the scene’s iconic events – FWD and Subdub as well as appearing at London’s flagship venues – Fabric, Cable (RIP) and Corsica. Internationally he’s played Outlook Festival, Le Zoo (Geneva) and a run of dates in the USA (Detroit, Washington, New York).
His music has gained recognition for it’s raw, sub-heavy sound, alongside the use of unconventional structures and abstract samples, gaining an ever increasing roster of support from the likes of Ben Sims, Modeselektor, Tommy Four Seven & Laurent Garnier.
His recent shift to a slower, more textural and in places abstract techno aesthetic has seen his material signed to Osiris Music UK, RunOutRun and Derelicht (new EPs are coming on all 3).
His music is buy on sight for me and many others. And rightfully so.
His session tonight is amongst the best we’ve had on the show. Don’t just take my word for it. Lock in.
In tonight’s first hour I present new music from Perc & Truss, Sully, Ben Frost, Scrase, Secluded, Oris remixing 14anger, T15DM and Hound Scales. And Savagen.
Our 4th Darkfloor Sound EP has, finally, been released. We might mention it once or twice on the show.
