Audio Dependent is the musical alter-ego of London based audio-visual artist, Tim Cowie. He has released music on After Dinner, Clever Music, Night Drive Music, Alt-Recordings, Chien Kollektiv, but it is his two eps on Metroline Limited that have reached the highest critical acclaim. 2007′s ‘Disloacted ep’ recieved support from international djs such as The Italoboyz, Andrew Weatherall, Arnaud Le Texier and Shelly Parker; and the track ‘Toenail’ from 2008′s ‘Fruit and Veg ep’ features on the 2009 Time Warp festival compilation mixed by Marco Carola.
Over the last 9 months Audio Dependent has been very busy reworking his liveset from scratch, striping it back to its bare bones and integrating hardware synths to allow for a much more creative, and expressive performance. After its premier outing at south London’s Lightbox for DON’T TECHNO SH!T, and a performance at Berlin’ Dienstagwelt amongst others, this set is now fully refined and perfected for the dancefloor. These stripped back performances draw influences from techno, house, dub, garage and 2 step with many elements characteristic of underground UK dance music. Expect deep stabs and sweeping pads, rumbling sub bass and squelching synths all held together with a shuffled groove and thumping kick that will keep you dancing all night.
