Duncan Powell - 'Impossible Songs'
Release Date 11/07/11
Faada - Cat no 36DP001

The goal behind this project was to create some deep & experimental music loosely based around 2step garage for listening pleasure. Fadaa records approached me with a open ear to the sounds & direction I wished to create. The tracks are electronic instrumentals of deep grooves and raw drums made to be played loud. The album was created for the listener just as much if not more than the DJ.

The 8 track album is entitled "Impossible Songs" as the twisted title came to me whilst writing the tracks and sits nicely with the vibe of the tracks.

Tracklist:
1. Intensions
2. Open Your Ears
3. Unattainable
4. WOWterlude
5. Energy (interlude)
6. Square Waves
7. 3:26am
8. Meant To Be

released digitally from all the usual stores.

I personally recommend Juno clips of each track are available if you click this link <<.

NO LONGER AVALIABLE Duncan Powell - "Beats In The Name Of Progress"

No Longer avaliable!!!!



My latest release is a bit non conventional. Think of it as my sketch book. It is a collection of rough round the edge ideas that I often start, but never finish.

I've skimmed though literally hundreds of these ideas and picked out 50 of my favourites. There's a mixture of various styles of Garage, and a couple of other style/bpm ideas thrown in. There are some tracks which could be used as specials, radio beds or DJ intros.

Here is a preview of some of the tracks included in the release. The tracks are 320k mp3s and the total play time is: over 100 mins.

Coming Soon

When im making beats, as i imagine for many other producers, i end up with 5 or 6 ideas that i dont use for each track i make. Some of these little loops i quite like listening to, but i dont have the desire to finish off. After much thought ive decided to compile them into an album. As these tracks are only short so there is going to be approx 50 of them in the collection. Ranging between 2004-2011, most of these are unmastered & un mixed down, so you can hear the unpolished raw work in progress. The tracklisting is being finalised as we speak.

Here is a little teaser of what to expect in the album:

Remixes Part 2

Heres part 2 of the remix ep! Took a while coming due to the usual uk garage longness so appologies about that. Im still waiting for 2 more mixes to be submitted, but im not holding my breath. I will upload them should they get completed!

Heres 4 new mixes for you all of the track "Care 4 Me". We have solution providing his classic 44 style, Whistla representing the 2step/future garage scene and 2 relatively new names DJ Nav & Chris Beale. DJ Nav comes with a old skool feeling remix with warm pads and classic drums. Chris totally flips the script with one of the freshest sounding remixes ive heard in a long time. After a few listens its a real grower!!
