Not long after this, the emerging producer found some record labels who were interested in his music. In 2011 he released his 4-track solo-debut, entitled “Protons EP” on Mindtech Recordings. Since then, his music has been released by numerous independent labels, including Full Force Recordings, Disturbed Recordings, Ammunition Recordings, Close 2 Death, Modulate Recordings and others.
2014 saw Bowsar make a big step forward with his first release on Jade’s notorious Eatbrain imprint alongside Maject. This release drew more attention to his music.
