Kowton And Julio Bashmore Collaborate On “Mirror Song”
Besides London, Bristol might be the most musically innovative city in Britain. Known for expansive grayscales and unrepentant low end, the Bristol sound isn’t singular by any means, but it’s far more close-knit and interconnected than anything London (or even Glasgow or Manchester) has to offer. Recently, Julio Bashmore and Kowton (who come from opposite sides of the Bristol spectrum) got together in the studio and came up with the razor sharp “Mirror Song”, a track that splits the difference between Kowton’s refreshingly grating riddims and Bashmore’s increasingly pop-oriented house anthems. Debuted by (everyone’s favorite) Jackmaster on his BBC 1 show, “Mirror Song” will see a release on Bashmore’s Broadwalk Records in the near future.
