Toronto native Greg Gow signals his arrival on Truesoul with a versatile three-track work.
Greg Gow has been crafting soulful techno, imbued with influences from Detroit and Toronto for almost two decades. He’s 2009 classic ‘The Bridge’ played a pivotal role in relaunching Derrick May’s legendary Transmat imprint, while releases on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS, Dubfire’s SCI + TEC and tracks on his own Restructured Recordings have stamped him as a vital artist for tastemakers.
His debut traverses a triple of cuts, each embodying a timeless driving vibe fitting Gow’s functional dancefloor ethos, making them a perfect fit for Adam Beyer’s Truesoul. ‘Memory Flash’ is a bouncy ‘90s throwback full of spirit, as Gow begins by showing his housier side to punchy, euphoric effect. Title track ‘People Mover’ lifts the intensity of the work, as a synth groove builds the atmosphere throughout. ‘Hidden Pictures’ is a deep, thoughtful techno weapon, driven by minor key stabs and a spoken word sample from Robert Hood about minimalism that kicks with Motor City spirit.
