Greg Gow has been steadily building a formidable reputation as one of Canada’s greatest musical exports in recent years.
From his base in Toronto, Gow skillfully intertwines the unmistakable sound of Detroit with the flavours of his hometown, creating heady, intoxicating results.Here with Base Jumping on Poker Flat Recordings, Gow provides a strong reminder of why he’s held in such high regard.
Base Jumping (Free Fall Mix) is a slick deep cut, drawing on elements of dub and minimal techno for its inspiration.
Lost Chords is a more upfront reckoning, firmly planting its flag in the ravey, tech house camp. A thick analog bassline makes it way through the track, adding a groovy swing to proceedings.
Finally Minister of Music rounds things off – a bumping house track with a sick sub bass and thick, Detroitesque chords and strings that add to the delicious tension.
