Bristol based beat maker and DJ Troy Gunner has been causing a stir for some time now. With a sound that ventures through deep and dark bass music, with elements of techno running through, Gunner often collaborates with fellow Bristolian badboy Woz, and has released on the likes of Mindset, Black Butter. His latest sounds come on Jakwob's Boom Ting and Monki's Zoo Music.

Slack In The Noose / Bottle Bang on Boom Ting Recordings saw Troy come with steely, ice cold bass flavours, soon to be followed up with his forthcoming WxT offering on Zoo Music. Showing off a touch of their versatility, Woz and Troy's DWN / Want It combines their rich analogue sounds with intricate drum sequencing, bridging 2-step garage and techno sounds.

Now, we welcome Troy into the mix for i-D. With a technically intricate, heavyweight sound, press play on a selection of both chilling and chilled out tunes.

"Diving in with broken, arty, introvert sketches and blended in to pacey, modern day electronic tracks which I'd typically showcase in a club, this is an even mixture of my favourite type of music at the moment. All packed into an hour, these tracks (in the correct context) make me feel really cold…"
