An alluring sound and dreamy combinations, reaching a skilful mix of vibrating rhythms with a deep groove. That is a fair description of the musical production of Mark Howls, an artist whose purpose is to explore bewitching worlds, letting himself be swathed by the magic of sounds.
Mark Howls’s passion for music has intensified over the years, starting when he studied piano as a young child, and in later years switching to electronic composition. He founded the band Jive Me and the label Distor Records; he is also known under the artist name Toutant.
