Shades of Grey are a collective made up of Owen Howells, Duct, Fybe:one and Trinomic. Starting life as a Brixton based party that eventually grew into a label that concerned itself with exploring the ‘grey areas’ between dub, house, techno and beyond. Now 3 releases in – most recently with Artemis – they’re steadily forging a name for themselves in dance music circles across the board, whilst still pursuing their own burgeoning solo careers.
With their core element remaining as bass, each of the members of the SoG gang bring a different element of music, adding texture, depth and curveballs to this exquisite mix they have turned in for Data Transmission, ducking, diving, twisting and turning through a range of exclusive tracks and tried and tested floor fillers. We’re pleased as punch to have this shadowy and creative collective on board as they explore the different shades of multi-stranded electronica currently keeping the capital locked down. Take it away boys…
