Toronto native Greg Gow has been steadily building a formidable reputation as one of Canada’s greatest musical exports in recent years. Consistently pushing the boundaries of his art, Greg’s unique sound is a skillful hybrid of soulful Detroit techno, marinated in the flavours of his Toronto roots. Hugely influenced by Detroit as a result of a deep appreciation for the sound and people of the area, Greg’s track “The Bridge” played a vital part in re-launching Derrick May’s legendary Transmat label, and releases on Kevin Sanderson’s KMS took the techno world by storm. Further releases have spread his sound to other labels, such as Marc Romboy’s Systematic Recordings & Christian Smith’s Tronic, alongside Adam Beyer’s Truesoul, and Dubfire’s SCI+TEC.
His debut album Lost Days was released on Art Department’s Social Experiment Records a few years ago, and takes the listener on a journey across the full range of his production styles; touching on everything from classic dub techno, to deep rolling house, and even late night ambient vibes. In 2019, Carl Craig’s legendary Planet E imprint released his Paradigm Shift EP, and from it “Lantana” became one of the tracks of Ibiza that season.
Since 2001, Greg’s own imprint Restructured Recordings has been pushing deep, funky, driving melodic techno from artists such as Mateo Murphy, Samuel L Session, Ian O’Donovan, and of course, Greg himself. He’s also recently launched a monthly podcast series entitled This Is Modulations, which features both recordings of live sets as well as studio mixes.
