Texas Recordings Underground
Bill Converse 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.
