DownbeatStudio, lead by Daniel Howard (arrangements) and Chris Field (keyboards and trumpet). Over a four year period from 2000 - 2004, with numerous collaborators, they recorded at least an album's worth of material, but only released one 5 track EP called Cool Drop. 500 copies were distributed to friends. Collaborators included Pennoire (aka Penni Bousfield; vocals), Paul Tregilgas (drums), Mason "Herbie" Riseborough (piano) and Bevan Galbraith (bass). Two of the tracks on the EP were included in H-town compilations Year Zero and Zero Point One.
