Available now from Warehouse Decay, our fifth release sees the return of Magnofon – who contributed the first EP on WDR. His latest offering is titled ‘Lost Property’ and features five tracks spanning several sub genres of House and Techno. 

You can buy it from both Juno and Bandcamp

WDR005 sees the return of Magnofon, with a conceptual EP that sits perfectly in line with the theme that underpins the label.
Lost Property marks a progression from the sound which featured in his previous ‘Connection’; this time the sound goes deeper, reflecting the artist’s fascination with abandoned buildings and urban decay. The theme carries through via the track titles all the while reinforced by the striking cover artwork, taken by Simon James at the abandoned RAF Upwood site.
With the concept and a generous five tracks clocking in at over 34 minutes, you could even classify this latest Magnofon record as a mini album.

Magnofon is British producer Harry Towell who has over a decade of music-making experience. He also records ambient music as Spheruleus and as well as Warehouse Decay, he runs the Audio Gourmet and Tessellate labels. He got into House music whilst in his teens, building a collection of vinyl and eventually playing out in bars and clubs. His time spent as a DJ peaked around 2007 when he played alongside the likes of Fred Everything, Nathan Coles, Inland Knights, JT Donaldson, The Littlemen, Da Sunlounge and DIY. Shortly after, a change in circumstances meant that DJing had to be sidelined and that is when he began to create ambient music.
In 2012 he started recording House music again after being reunited with his record collection which had previously been kept in storage. Later in the year, his debut ‘Connection EP’ became the inaugral release on Warehouse Decay Recordings.

Last night Magnofon was DJing in Stamford as part of the all-day Awakening event at Opus Dai, ahead of his second release on Warehouse Decay – which comes out tomorrow.
We had intended to record the full set but unfortunately that never materialised! We did have our camera man in-place who was able to take this brief video:

On Saturday 25th of May, Magnofon will be DJing in Stamford, UK from 4:30pm. We see it as a launch party for Magnofon’s forthcoming ‘Lost Property’ EP which comes out on Warehouse Decay Recordings on the following Monday. It’s at an all day event called Awakening, Opus Dai where he’ll be dishing out 50 free specially made Warehouse Decay samplers. The discs will contain current and unreleased material from the label and are only available at the gig. If you’re in the area, arrive early to make sure you receive a copy – they won’t hang around for long!

LOUPER

The fourth release on Warehouse Decay is out today, in the shape of a self-titled EP by Louper.

You can buy it from both Juno and Bandcamp

(Click on the hyperlink to visit the release page)

Louper is Tim Diagram, who has made waves in the electro-ambient music scene since 2001, this new project is an upward shift from his usual output as Maps and Diagrams and his many other guises. Tim has released over 15 albums, both as solo work and collaborations.

Under the Louper moniker, Tim’s first is the self-titled ‘Louper’ EP out on Warehouse Decay Recordings. It focuses on a straight 4X4 structure with a musical nod to the classic sound of Acid House and Detroit Techno scene in which he was absorbed in during the early 90′s. Tim adds a twisted perspective to the EP with stuttered percussion on the two tracks “Idem” and “Tinder” which are nicely balanced with the layered, more dense sounds of “Loma” and “Suber”.

Louper

We have another new artist on-board, in the form of Tim Diagram’s new Louper moniker. Tim will be familiar to the electro/acoustic ambient music scene, recording as Maps and Diagrams and under various other names. His debut as Louper looks back on the Acid House and Detroit Techno scene.

The eponymous Louper EP will be released on Warehouse Decay Recordings on Monday 13th of May through Juno and Bandcamp. A preview of the EP has been uploaded to our Soundcloud account for your perusal:
