We welcome Vancouver based producer Iain Howie to Needwant.
Iain's original compositions are filled with lyricism and musicality, his use of live instruments and field recordings are just another indication of his creativity and skill. Having shared the stage with recognised acts such as Bob Moses, Jacques Greene and Jay Tripwire, it's clear that Iain's stock is on the rise.
'To Forget' is quite simply a stunning introduction into the young producers vision. The aforementioned live instruments and field recordings are intertwined with layers of pads, drums, hazy chords and vocals, coupled with psychedelic sounds that draw you in and take you on an atmospheric filled journey.
The hotly tipped Whitesquare (Freerange) delivers a melodic rework of the original. A full EP from Iain Howie will follow.
Over the past ten years the Needwant mantra has been to push the very best in new talent, having provided the platform for the likes of Kiwi, The Mekanism, Maxxi Soundsystem, The Revenge and many more.
