Magnofon 5

For the fourth Warehouse Decay Session in as many months, we welcome back Magnofon who returns with a mammoth 2 hour mix to coincide with his new album ‘Fallowfall’.

The mix begins with an assortment of seriously deep cuts from artists such as Rick Wade, Alex Danilov and Moomin. On the hour things start to bump a bit more with Garage influence House cuts from the likes of James Johnston, Dog Days and Wandoe before the mix draws to a close through minimal and Techno sounds of Steven Tang, Lee Guthrie and Rene Breitbarth.
To conclude, Magnofon drops a downtempo cut by Dustmotes to chill things out and end the show on a relaxed note.

During the show, tracks from WDR releases new and forthcoming are included, such as TwelveTen’s ‘Haze’ and Tronikform’s forthcoming ‘Patterns’. Also, ‘Dustmood’ and ‘Downcast’ from Magnofon’s new album Fallowfall are included. You can check out his debut album here: http://warehousedecay.bandcamp.com/album/fallowfall

WDR010 Magnofon – Fallowfall

September 16, 2013

1 Cover

 

At long last, we are proud to unveil our very first album release which comes courtesy of Magnofon. ‘Fallowfall’ is a concept album inspired by decay, crumbling buildings and economic downturn with Magnofon exploring experimental sound art falling loosely within the Deep House, Minimal, Techno and Downtempo genres. Each track is accompanied by bonus artwork, most of which was kindly provided by photographer Simon James

You can stream the album in full on Bandcamp which is the only place that you’ll be able to get the bonus images. Or, if you prefer, there is Juno and Junodownload too

Magnofon began writing experimental Deep House and minimal dance music in 2012, with two EP releases on Warehouse Decay Recordings already under his belt. With an extremely diverse taste in music from Deep House through to Ambient, Fallowfall sees Harry Towell steer his Magnofon project in a direction which somehow draws from all of these.

Inspired by abandoned spaces, urban decay and economic downturn Fallowfall is a tapestry of detailed sound that falls loosely into a Deep House aesthetic. It incorporates elements of his wide musical influences from minimal and Detroit Techno, Downtempo and Jazz to Ambient and Musique Concrete. A sense of fragility permeates the record as themes of abandoned buildings and desolate landscapes creep into view.

Those familiar with Magnofon’s material will notice a slight change from the dancefloor-focused rhythms of his Connection and Lost Property EPs. Fallowfall incorporates a wider tempo range accompanied with tape delay effects, sampled vinyl, forgotten radio broadcasts, beats made from field recordings and sampled acoustic instruments. There is a vintage crumbling and disjointed feel throughout the pieces which are pitched more towards the listener than the DJ.

The cover artwork is provided by Simon James, a regular photographic collaborator with Warehouse Decay and the Bandcamp version comes with a bonus image for each of the individual tracks.

WDR on Irregular Crates

September 7, 2013

IC1

There’s a brand new blog that went up last week called Irregular Crates. We’ll be working closely with them sending advance promo copies of all our releases. The blog covers all styles of experimental music from Ambient, Folk and Jazz through to Trip Hop, Deep House and Techno – you can experience this extremely wide taste in just one podcast by clicking the picture above. 

In the very first episode, Irregular Crates have included ‘Gone’ from the forthcoming album ‘Fallowfall’ by Magnofon (out 16th of September) and also, ‘Haze’ by TwelveTen. There’s some seriously good House music that follows too so we recommend you leave it playing after you’ve heard the WDR inclusions…

TwelveTen in Andy Ward mix

Recently we announced that we’ve got the debut album from Magnofon lined up for release. With the album having been mastered we’re now in a position to present a preview of the album, as well as reveal that the release date will be 18th September!

WDR009 TwelveTen - Haze EP

Tomorrow sees the release of the ‘Haze EP’ by UK artist TwelveTen. Since we’re not around tomorrow, we’ve decided to post it up today!
The EP straddles the lines between Deep and Tech House and has already received support from Brett Gould, Chamboche, Michael McLardy and Kinetic London

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

Haze’ sees Muzik Magazine’s former Bedroom Bedlam runner-up Tom Hughes turn in his debut EP as TwelveTen. He began DJing during the nineties culminating in regular successful nights in and around Leeds, Chester and Liverpool, UK before problems with Tinnitus meant he had to take a sidestep from DJing. Tom has spent the last decade focusing on his career, whilst devoting any spare time to honing his production work as TwelveTen. Through years dedicated to dance music, Tom has seen his styles develop from heavier styles to the more progressive sounds (a la John Digweed). Whilst living in Leeds he became a regular at Basics, which got him into the Deep House scene and he has been hooked ever since.

The TwelveTen studio sound is rooted in Deep and Tech House, with the Haze EP serving as the perfect introduction. The title track is a dubby number with deep pads, vocal hooks and a looping percussive rhythm. ‘Physical Focus’ is a little more melodic with its warm arrangement of organ stabs, whilst further expanding the themes laid out in ‘Haze’.
