For those that keep an eye on our Soundcloud and Facebook pages, you may have already been aware that we’ve an EP imminent for release by German artist Ajott. After the recent deepness of Magnofon’s Smallroom Breaks album, our next release sees us return to a more electronic sound; Ajott’s Homeward EP is a set of well-programmed deeply minimal Techno cuts. It will be released on Tuesday 10th of November. Check out a preview by hitting play below:

Press release:
Hot on the heels of our last release is a new digital EP forthcoming on Warehouse Decay, courtesy of Ajott. The Homeward EP was written by Christian Hoche from Erfurt, Germany and took shape a few months back following the artist’s travels.

We first discovered Ajott last year and have been working with him towards his debut EP release, which comes after the best part of a decade spent honing his craft. Armed with influences of nature and Jazz, the Ajott studio sound starts life in Ableton Live and much of his work is designed or based around live performances. His style is characterised around minimalism and not only does it nod back to the post-millenium Minimal Techno revolution but it is also rooted to the Deep House movement, with deep synths and plenty of Dub.

Homeward is comprised of three tracks and opens with ‘Wooden’, a deep and brooding piece of slow Techno. This is followed by title track ‘Homeward’ which continues the mood of the opening track, with a little more jack and swing in the minimal rhythms as the synths soar. The EP draws to a close with ‘Early Bird’ in which the minimalist percussion is particularly effective alongside the swirling dub stabs.

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The good news is that the show has been archived and is available to listen to again by click HERE and at the time of writing it will be the most recent show.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!
