Yorkshire electronics guru plays it safe
Rarely a month has passed over the last few years without a fresh release from bespectacled Leeds producer Carl Finlow. Under various pseudonyms reflecting his predilection for differing styles of electronic music, Finlow has quietly carved a niche for himself, and today ranks as one of British dance culture’s most respected young talents. As Random Factor, Finlow fondly imbues his beloved technology with melancholy emotion, his reedy singing voice introducing a welcome human dimension to his slick house-techno hybrid. Convergence is certainly an accomplished, polished affair. Whether it elevates Finlow to the next level he deserves remains to be seen.
