Bowski

Today i am listening to Bowski, it would look a whole lot better to say Bowski comes from the depths of the Bristol underground, but unfortunately he doesn’t. He’s from Romsey, a small place in the south surrounded by trees and tractors. Despite growing up in this rural market town where its inhabitants complain to the local paper about the internet and charity shops, Bowski somehow managed to find a nice slice of electronic music. You see this type of music is a rarity in Romsey. The majority of the residents prefer to sing along to the ‘Sound Of Music’ soundtrack whilst drinking bucks fizz on a tartan rug. You won’t see many people enjoying house or techno, which is probably why Bowski got the odd complaint from the neighbours when he first bought a set of decks.

After learning how to mix one song into another he ventured off to Bristol. He thought it would be easy to get a few gigs, with the city being so rich in musical culture. But it actually turned out half the population of Bristol DJ’d in some form or another, so it wasn’t as simple as making a mix full of bangers and handing it to a couple of promoters. It seemed the only way to get a decent set was by making a half decent tune that bigger DJs might want to play.

After finally deciding on his name, which came from a popular film involving a lazy man with a beard, Bowski made his first proper track. This turned out to be ‘Hooves’; a relatively simple track featuring a couple of his mates making ‘bom’ sounds. It was only meant to be a learning curve for producing, but it got picked up by Fake Blood and Boy 8 Bit, and it gave Bowski the chance to play his favourite tracks across the UK and in Ibiza, the complete polar opposite to little old Romsey.

Now that Bowski has moved along from mixing dodgy mash ups in his bedroom you’ll hear a variety of different jingles. Sometimes you’ll hear rolling basslines with toe tapping beats and other times you’ll hear stripped back bleeps alongside playful melodies. Who knows, maybe you’ll catch him playing these in the near future. You may even find yourself nodding your head to them a little bit…

Jim Lambie


Recently i have become quite interested in pattern making in my illustration, this was originaly brought on in my King O' Parrots design with playing card theme.

I was reccomended an artist called Jim Lambie, whos work is also inspred by music and general manic and panic in the world around him. He uses interesting colours and creates his patterns out of tape! I will be taking some inspiration from his work and using it in my own.
