Available now! ubik mcdxcii 'Echoes of a Dead Planet'

Available now in an edition of 35, ubik's debut is available now via bandcamp and email

London-based ubik mcdxcii debuts an ineffable collection of other-worldly tracks. Rumbling hip-hop beats underpin a constant, psychedelic flow of heavily processed vocals that rattle and tumble across both sides. Undone rhythms that frequently disintegrate somehow guide you to something new.

CLR12 ubik mcdxcii 'Echoes of a Dead Planet'

We're excited to announce the debut of London's ubik mcdxcii.

A drum machine and a plethora of vocal loops get caught in a tunnel, rattling together through a space/time compression. Ubik narrates us through a selection of alien atmospheres using deconstructed rhythms, groaning voices and other strange devices.

Available November 14th, ltd edition cassette.

Storch Interior Extracts 'Remote Assistance Failure' CLR11

Storch Interior Extracts 'Remote Assistance Failure' (CLR11) is available now

The filtered, unintelligible sounds of a voice somewhere across the atlantic, travelling through a cable to your display. All clarity is lost along the way, but in this post-language vacuum something far more soothing emerges in place of words.

Available Now! CLR07 & CLR08 - Straytone & AxJxB

We're happy to announce our next two releases, available now on C40 Cassette or Digital Download.

Straytone 'Brute-Force Melody Cracking'

Tokyo-dwelling modular artist brings auto-generated melodies that weave and evolve - each new line effacing the last as it moves onwards with graceful speed. Complimented by a cooler, cinematic drone that makes this a dynamic yet complete debut release. 
Edition of 20

AJB 'Relics of YX'

Multicoloured modular groans, rising like a beast from beneath the city, scattering harmonies across beds of grumbling noise. Harshness never prevails, but the tonal flourishes disturb as much as they embrace you. This album was recorded across a 3 month journey in different locations in Japan. 
Edition of 20

Purchase them now via bandcamp, available cheaper when bought together.
Email us for a direct order to help save on bandcamp fees.
