Lowtec (Fri 01/11)

Good Company & Ninth Circle presents Lowtec

Jens Kuhn’s (aka Lowtec) approach to music can be described as agreeably Miesian: less is nearly always more. His discography stretches back over 15 years, yet his output is pleasingly sporadic. His choice of labels throughout those years – David Moufgang’s Source Recordings, Playhouse, Out To Lunch – reflects his recorded output too: he’s studied the classics, but filters them through his left-of-centre lens.

In late 2006 he began the Workshop label. Like-minded artists like Even Tuell, Kassem Mosse and Move D found a home there, and it quickly became a go-to destination for anyone looking for something a bit different. The label’s minimal aesthetic – hand-stamped logos on white labels – has been done before, but it certainly pre-empted the recent vogue for faux-anonymity.

In early 2013, Kuhn released Port Carbon, a double 10” on Brainmath. Here, his approach to creating dancefloor music remains the same. Minimal textures forming together to slowly build deep grooves that are both emotive and floor ready.

Lowtec creates and releases on his Workshop imprint left-field house and techno that is familiar yet unique in its maturity poise- An evening not to be missed.

Lowtec plays Geisha on 1st Novemeber with local support from, Basic Mind, Untitled Collective, Andrew Sinclair and Emerald Cabal & Reece Walker.
