Tim Wright, 90s electronic music and general boundary pushing producer and composer has been one of the key players of underground electronic music from the past 20years. Been described as “one of the most influential, under-recognized forces of innovation” [Sean Cooper, all music guide]. He has now turned his talent to electro-pop-Indie two-piece Viewer. Joined by Andy Johnson, the witty kitchen-sink commentator delivering a style described as ‘reminiscent of Lou Reed’s junkie punk drawl’ [Here Magazine] which both compliments and contrasts Tim’s bass-heavy backdrop, creating a unique and irresistible dance floor sound.
Tim has had previous releases on some of the dominant labels in the field, with 12″ and album releases on Mute, Tresor, Soul Jazz and PIAS. It’s now Stopstart’s turn to step up to the mark, signing the Viewer outfit purely on the strength of this release.
White Noise is the first offering from the duo and sees Andy slurring his way across the highly addictive and edgy bass lines and beats of Tim’s production skills. These two know the score when it comes to creating a track that will have you looping the hook over and over for days after the first listen. On the flip is the fantastic dub influenced YesKing remix which grabs the track and drops it with a heavy dose of up beat organ stabs and brass to keep the summer vibes flowing through the year.
RELEASE: 9th NOVEMBER 2009
