Piltdown Sound is the techno project of Joel Cox and Alex Falk, both Appalachian natives who cut their teeth DJing amidst the ruins of the first wave of rave in the southern US. They were introduced through and inspired by their longtime friend Igor Bogatov, an obsessive techno DJ and notorious instigator of events in the southeast. With Igor’s enthusiasm and support, the pair entered the studio, released their first several EPs and began performing together in 2009.
Alex and Joel’s initial experiments quickly solidified into a hypnotic, loop-driven sound that put them in demand for remixes and original releases on both domestic and international labels. Their recent digital and 12″ releases (on labels including Woods N Bass, Proper Trax, SubSensory Recordings, bleepsequence, Herbst Und Musik, Landed Productions and Release Musiq) are being charted and supported by names such as Dustin Zahn, DJ Deep, Cassegrain, Jeroen Search, Norman Nodge, Samuli Kemppi, Markus Suckut, Raíz, MaVisit Sitettias Fridell, Truncate and many more.
