Texas Recordings Underground made its mark this Spring with the well-received techno/electro Cyber_Tex EP that featured electro wizard Cygnus and E.R.P. aka Gerard Hanson. Not to rest on his laurels, TX Connect’s Gavin Guthrie is following that up with the 2nd release on the label by Austin’s man-of-the-moment Bill Converse. Bill has been known to local Austinites for years as one of Texas’ bet DJs and recently released a mix for Resident Advisor highlighting those skills. But it’s now his productions that are really starting to show his talents. Iconic label Dark Entries has thought enough of his work to release the seminal double album Meditations/Industry as well as the follow-up 12” Warehouse Invocation. His debut on T.R.U. contains 2 deep excursions with 7 of 9 and Ahead, both tech house masterworks that mix elements of Chicago and Detroit with a Texas flair that keeps it definitively Bill Converse. Ahead in particular brings Ron Trent’s Altered States to mind as well as some of Boo Williams’ premier work with its synths swirling around the metallic 909 percussion.
