Our next long-overdue Warehouse Decay Session comes courtesy of label bosses Harry Towell and Fraser McGowan as their new recording alias Quiet Birds. The duo both come from an Ambient music background with Harry releasing as Spheruleus and Fraser working under his Caught In The Wake Forever. They formed Quiet Birds through a mutual love of experimental Techno and are slowly working on their début release.

In the meantime, they have sat down and compiled a list of some of their favourite records past and present which will loosely reflect their collaborative output as Quiet Birds. Things start off subtle and abstract with Ezekiel Honig and Mind Over MIDI, passing through the jazz influences of DoubtingThomas and Thomas Hildebrand before moving towards a tougher Tech House sound with tracks from Mihai Popoviciu and Junior Gee. The mix leans more and more towards Techno as things progress with Shifted and our own Tom Mosler and Hoxiun making an appearance.

‘Patterns’ is a three track EP for Warehouse Decay from Tom Mosler which is rooted in minimal, dancefloor focussed Techno.
Tom Mosler is a Polish electronic producer and sound designer currently residing in the United Kingdom. He has been interested in electronic music since the 1990’s and has been recording himself under various guises for over a decade.

Tom’s DJing has seen him play in many Polish cities including Warsaw, Wroclaw, Lublin, Szczecin and he also put on his own nights in Koszalin. In 2006 Tom began to focus on his own productions and live performances and the following year he started his own label Kicksomatic as a platform to release both his own music and material from his friends.

These early works were under his own name Tom Mosler and he has since progressed to release with labels such as Hype Muzik, Equaliteq and Off Side. He is also known for his work as Tronikform and the Kicksomatic recordings label.

WDR promo mix

 

 

Regular readers and follows of our label will have noticed continued support from Mark Ryan‘s Amazing Beats show on Amazing Radio ever since we began back in 2013. Mark has regularly selected tracks from our releases since day one and included them in his shows, with a particular fondness for the work of Fau, Dokun and Magnofon.

Last week we knocked up a 30 minute promo mix and sent it over to him and straight away he put it on Friday’s show! It was banging out across the net and on DAB in London and Dublin less than 48 hours after we sent it – so fast that we didn’t get much chance to spread the word.

The good news is that the show has been archived and is available to listen to again by click HERE and at the time of writing it will be the most recent show. If you’re visiting and a Friday has passed since, then you should be able to catching it by hitting ‘More Shows’ and selecting Friday 1st of August. It will be archived for the next few weeks.

Alternatively, you can check the promo mix out aside from the radio environment by clicking the image above or HERE. We have uploaded the mix to Amazing Tunes where it can either be streamed or download for free…

The mix includes some material from our back catalog from artists such as USRNM, Magnofon, TwelveTen and Louper as well as some unreleased works. One such is a track from the forthcoming Recall EP from Tom Mosler which will drop this Wednesday 6th of August. We’ve also thrown forward a piece from an EP we’re working on behind the scenes – this is by German artist Christian Hoche who also records as Ajott. As you’ll hear for yourself this promises to be something very special indeed!

New to the WDR team

June 2, 2014

Frasermcg

We’ve been talking behind the scenes to a good friend who has joined the WDR ‘backroom’ team… Fraser McGowan will be lending a hand with a host of different tasks including listening to demos, curating releases, production, some mastering expertise, posting quality Deep House and Techno to our Facebook page and other general shenanigans. Fraser records lo-fi electro-acoustic music as Caught In The Wake Forever and contrary to his melancholy, rustic style his own musical taste enlists a strong interest in Techno.

Whilst not in keeping with the material you can usually find on these pages, you can check out Fraser’s brilliant latest self-released album My Family Goes On Without Me by hitting play below

At the weekend the Irregular Crates blog posted up about our latest release, by Dustcraft. IC will be covering all of our releases going forward and their website is a hub for discovering experimental electronic music and beyond.

Kind words indeed from Irregular Crates…

Today we return for 2014 with a new release courtesy of Mike Cottone, a resident of suburban Detroit. This one’s our most chilled record to date and we’re delighted to present Mike’s debut Deep House release as Dustcraft.

You can stream the EP in full and download now from Bandcamp, or grab from Junodownload and soon Amazon, iTunes, eMusic

Dustcraft is Detroit native Michael Cottone who also records Ambient music as The Green Kingdom. His work as The Green Kingdom has always been something of a retreat from the hectic nature and pressures of daily life. This new project was created as an outlet for Mike to experiment with beats-based Deep House material and it adopts a little something of Detroit city lifestyle. We are proud to present EP1, his debut release under this banner. 

This three track digital release begins with Applez, a deep vibe track perfect for the warmer months ahead. Next is Sewer Stream, a track some will recognise from our limited edition WDR sampler album. More warmth is in abundance, in the form of rhodes, bass, strings and percussion. 
The EP closes with Lioness which introduces guitar loops to the mix as the sun-drenched vibes dance to a lazy beat.

Magnofon GS

 
Magnofon has laid his taste for Deep House and Techno completely bare today as Grounding Sounds post a two part vinyl-only mix he did of his favourite ever records within the genres. It rakes over the last 25 years as Harry casts a nostalgic glance to his early DJing days. It features tracks by Moodymann, Miguel Migs, Joey Youngman, Omar S and Larry Heard to name but a few…

PART 1
PART 2

We want your sounds!

May 10, 2014


We work very closely with the Irregular Crates blog who will post updates on all our forthcoming releases. The blog also operates as a digital label and their most recent album ‘Always Not There’ by anonymous producer Omnimous came out last April, in which the label gathered sample contributions from various artists. These were passed on to the producer who produced a stunning, deep and murky record with a theme that suits us right down to the ground – decay and utter ruin – with photography from Ian Hazeldine. Through discussions, we are fortunate to be in a position to work with Omnimous towards a digial EP release on Warehouse Decay…

WE WANT YOUR SOUNDS! So we’re now actively collecting sounds, samples – anything audible from artists or the general public which we’ll pass to Omnimous to create an EP. You can send us your samples and recordings here: warehousedecay@gmail.com and will get a credit on the release

To check out Always Not There to see what this producer’s sound is like, click play below…
