WDS#1

Today we decided to set up a Mixcloud page for Warehouse Decay, where we will host our own mix series compiled with the help of label artists and friends. Each mix will feature at least one Warehouse Decay track and they may include as-yet unreleased material from our label. Kicking off proceedings, Magnofon presents an hour of Minimal Techno, Deep and Jackin’ House. To check out the mix, click the image above, or HERE

Magnofon is responsible for the Connection and Lost Property EPs on WDR. Normally a vinyl only DJ, Harry Towell (Magnofon) delivers a rare digital-only mix that spans the full spectrum of his taste in House and Techno. It includes a lot of fresh material, some of which made its way into his recent set at Opus Dai, Stamford.

It begins on a minimal note with Klapper Voight’s ‘Blanket Girl’ from the recent WDR sampler CD and ‘Iris’ from the forthcoming EP by Dokun. It transitions smoothly through a couple of Deep House selections before Magnofon’s unsigned ‘Dustmood’ comes in.
The shuffling garage-influenced beats pave the way for some dancefloor-friendly Jackin’ House before the deep-hitting Dachshund remix of Lee Guthrie’s No Doubt comes in. Nyra’s ‘Like This’ follows to re-introduce the minimal Techno sound, followed by Fau’s Disorder from his new ‘Keta EP’ on WDR. The hard jackin’ beats of Kindimmer follow before ‘Tinder’ from Louper’s eponymous EP on WDR draws this hour-long session to a close.

WDR006 Fau – Keta EP

June 26, 2013

As from today, our catalog now stands at six releases and the latest inclusion is dark Techno from Polish artist Fau. The three track Keta EP is out now on Juno, DJ Download and Bandcamp.
*Click on the blue hyperlink to visit the relevant sites

Warsaw producer Fau, well-known in some music circles for his DJ collective Mustnotsleep and producer duet Fau&Deam, was until now mainly associated with future-bass DJ sets and productions. His first solo EP is therefore quite surprising – the material included is 100% Techno, bringing to mind the type of aesthetics you’d associate with the likes of Sandwell District, Frozen Border or Horizontal Ground.

The EP opens with the strict, severe and dark ‘Keta’. Its climate (basement filled up with smoke, 5 am…) may be comparable either to the classic System 01 ‘Drugs Work’ or Dario Zenker’s productions on previously mentioned Frozen Border.

The next track ‘Disorder’ basically sounds just as if it were created by Function or Sleeparchive – however, what is really significant is that nothing further can be said concerning the copying of someone else’s ideas. What will strike your attention is how graceful and tactful the reference to their works is.

The last one, almost 10 minutes in length is ‘Flying Mannequin’ undoubtedly possessing the biggest club potential, which will perfectly match the so-called peak-time.

What is more, all 3 tracks are based on a very high level of vocal sample usage. The best example of this effect is shown in “Disorder”, where the shredded voice of Hvrst stays in the head for a long time after listening to this tune.

Music Of The Future volume 1

We’ve just been alerted to an excellent Polish artists only release on Ponton Music, which is available today through the likes of Juno, Beatport and Boomkat. The collection spans a broad range of contemporary electronic dance music, in association with the Music Of The Future gigs in and around Warsaw.

It comes highly recommended with excellent contributions throughout. We’re particularly impressed by pieces by Marcin Krupa, Enn, Weld and Sovinsky. You can listen to previews of the compilation and purchase by clicking here: BUY / LISTEN

One artist in the line-up that may seem familiar to regular visitors of our website is Fau, with his track ‘Consume Commute’. The compilation lands two days before his debut solo EP ‘Keta’ is to be released here on Warehouse Decay. You can check out a preview of the EP on our Souncloud account, embedded below

 

New Louper sounds

June 14, 2013

Louper

Hot on the heels of the recent self-titled debut EP from Louper here on WDR, we have been informed that there will be a follow up EP coming out soon. Louper has uploaded a new track to the Handstitched Soundcloud account, where you can also hear more of his work across all genres and pseudonyms:

This track is deep, slow Techno with a refreshing ambient wash; reminiscent of ‘Suber’ from Louper’s EP for Warehouse Decay. If you missed this release, please take the time to check it out here: JUNO / BANDCAMP

Bio:
Fau is a Warsaw based producer and DJ, member of the Mustnotsleep DJ collective and promoter at Music of the Future (intelligent electronic party cycle). His natural environment is deep bass, all kinds of clicks and other unidentifiable sounds. His roots belong to abstract rap and trip hop music however, he now finds himself at home combining genres such as Techno,  Bass and Ambient. Apart from his solo productions, he also takes part in a collaboration project with another Warsaw producer called Deam (as Fau&Deam). Their joint album entitled “Life Act” has been released by American label Dubporn Records (currently Loveless Records). Until now, Fau’s tracks have been released by labels such as: Subtopia Records, Apparition Recordings and Dubporn Records. The forthcoming Keta EP on Warehouse Decay is the result of his latest random sound combinations.

WDR Sampler

June 1, 2013

wdr sampler

We have been working with our artists towards compiling a label sampler album, showcasing  current and as yet unreleased material from Warehouse Decay. The sampler is intended as an introduction to both the work of the artists included and the wide ranging styles of House and Techno we release on the label.

We had always intended for this compilation album to be given away for free via our Bandcamp account. The sampler was also made into a small run of 50 copies, given away by Magnofon at his recent gig in Stamford, UK. There were 10 copies left so we have decided to make these available for a small price. Click on the link below to stream/download or order the limited edition CD:

Many thanks go out to Mike, Tony, Andrew, Colm, Devin, James, Tim, Darren, Mateusz, Stuart and Bartosz for their contributions to this project
