Pumpehuset will host London-based producer Ross Tones AKA Throwing Snow for his debut album release tour on the 21st June.
The tour celebrates his new album Mosaic
, which has its full release on Houndstooth after a weekend preview stream on Dazed Digital. Houndstooth is a Fabric-offshoot label with previous releases from Call Super and House of Black Lanterns.
Sonically the album has recognisable elements of drum n bass, as well as uplifting and accessible electronica, but Throwing Snow’s music is clearly also shaped by his interest in an unusually wide range of genres outside of the electronic sphere. Tones cites everything from traditional folk, to hardcore, punk, and UK metal as some of his other influences.
"It's little pieces of the music I love combined to form a coherent whole. Elements of folk and real instruments combined with drum funk, electronica and samples. I don't feel I'm in any way using one influence in any of the tracks, more bringing disparate elements together as a collage. Each part is distinct but when bought together there is a bigger picture that the listener can find points of reference."

Their real crate-digging mentality and their ability to cross over into the weirder side of electronic music guarantees their closing set will be worth staying for.
