cowboy rhythmbox: music to... pet horses to.
Cowboy Rhythmbox's Nathan Gregory Wilkins has soundtracked the likes of Marc By Marc Jacobs, Giles and Sibling and now, with the release of their We Got The Box EP, he delivers an exclusive influences mix for i-D. Get to know.
Nathan Gregory Wilkins and Richard X aka Cowboy Rhythmbox have created their own lane within house and techno. The latest signing to Phantasy Sound (who have released music from the likes of Erol Alkan, Daniel Avery and Conan Mockasin to name a few) make deep, arpeggiated, trance inducing beats that we cant get enough of. They really caught our attention with their single Shake and with the release of their latest We Got The Box EP, Nathan (who also produces show music for Marc By Marc Jacobs, Giles and Sibling amongst others) has mixed a selection of music that has inspired the singular Cowboy Rhythmbox sound. A sound they describe as drawing on a collective love of outsider house, bargain bin cut-outs, hard drive debris, rudimentary jack trax, obscure TV themes, Euro disco, EBM, Detroit Techno, the Smith & Wesson Model 3 and horses.
