Scottish born, Edinburgh resident Stillhead produces deep, dub-influenced electronic music from ambient to experimental drum & bass.
His sound is influenced by Nordic electronica artists such as Lulu Rouge, Trentemøller, Hatti Vatti, Tonik Ensemble, Mike Sheridan etc.
After 6 years, 4 albums, more than 20 EPs and countless remixes and appearances under his DFRNT alias, Alex Cowles decided to switch things up and start fresh as Stillhead.
Taking a far more meticulous approach to crafting his deep sounds he swiftly released the Dwelling EP on sea-blue transparent vinyl on his own imprint Brightest Dark Place, following that with the expansive full-length album Iceberg with Here & Now Recordings. His latest release, the Spiders EP sees Alex back home on his own Brightest Dark Place imprint.
In addition to his original releases, Alex has completed remixes for a number of artists, written the score for a short film, appeared on various compilations and performed live as Stillhead in a number of places including Copenhagen, Tallinn, Riga and even Sisimiut (a Greenlandic town within the Arctic Circle).
His music has had support from Lulu Rouge, Maya Jane Coles, Nick Warren, Om Unit, The Black Dog, Machinedrum, Pablo Bolivar, Breach, Addison Groove, Laurent Garnier, Blackdown, DJ Mag, Kiss FM, Mixmag, BBC Radio and loads more.
