Hailing from Bristol, UK electronic musician Troy Gunner is adding yet more depth to a city with a famously rich sonic heritage.

Plaudits and support has been forthcoming from some of the most influential voices of the moment, with plays coming from the legendary Laurent Garnier, Mary-anne Hobbs, Tom Ravenscroft and Gilles Peterson, who released Troy’s remix of Gang Colours’ ‘To Repel Ghosts’ on his Brownswood imprint. While wary of comparisons, Radio 1′s Gill Mills’ summary of Troy’s sound as having the “warmth of James Blake and the ominous brooding quality of, say, Burial” certainly comes close to the mark.

With releases on labels such as Blackbutter Records, as well as a new EP on Akkord’s EMF imprint (off the back of featuring on Akkord’s debut album for Fabric sub-label, Houndstooth), Troy is cementing his reputation as a unique force in an already healthy scene.
