Vancouver Canada residents John Morgan and Kiki Stewardson have been producing electronic music together since 1999 with success on Bill’s Hamel’s Teknology and Sunkissed labels, and now with Release Records. John’s electronic music background goes far back to the days of acid house in the late 80’s, pioneering live PA and techno on Canada’s West Coast.
Kiki’s passion and knowledge of music has helped define a sound that Powerplant are starting to become known for – deep and solid progressive with a good techy edge. Past releases have seen Powerplant in the studio with Bill Hamel, Medway and Simon Noble, and they have been remixed by the likes of Blackwatch and their Vancouver friend Jay Tripwire. 3. Dutch band PowerPlant consists of 4 gits: Akim Moiseenkov on Hammond and vocals, Mathijs Tieken on the drums, Lucas Arnuff on bass, and 'Freek' von Emaus on guitars. PowerPlant is a modern band, that gets its inspiration from the glory days of the seventies.
By combining legendary bands like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, shroom experiences, lager and chronic sleep deprivation, PowerPlant creates a contemporary sound of melancholic happiness and cheap thrills. The songs address issues we can all relate to, be it with a humorous touch. Please check www.myspace.com/thepowerplantmyspace for music and more info! Read more on Last.fm.
