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 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…

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
