Bricolage Podcast #49 : Ty Lumnus



Our September podcast sees us edge ever nearer to our landmark 50th episode and to bring us that step closer we're offering up a weird and wonderful selection from Ty Lumnus. This podcast sees the Glaswegian mix and compile his first ever podcast but, on listening in, you'd never guess. This mix gives an insight into what kinda of sounds and mood drive the producer and his own creative tendencies. If the name looks familiar then you may notice that it's an anagram of "Ly Tumnus"....

Ly Tumnus just featured on our '0141' compilation last week with his track 'X' from 2016. Ly Tumnus is an old skin, shedded and grown anew into Ty Lumnus. You can expect to hear a lot more under that name in the coming weeks with his debut EP "Decompression" releasing on the label on the 28th of  this month. Previews and snippets coming soon. Until then, delve deep into this assemblage of consummate ambient tones and first rate electronica.

As always you can listen in below or at our mixcloud.

0141 (bc048)



Today we celebrated completing our fourth year as a label. It's been a fulfilling and creative 48 months. To mark this years anniversary we decided to bring things back closer to home and have our annual compilation exclusively feature Glasgow artists. We wanted the sounds of the city. The sounds of home.

The result is a diverse collection of electronic music from Glasgow's underbelly. We've called on some label stalwarts to provide us with sounds and also opened up our doors to some new faces. It's a fresh outlook at what's bubbling under the surface and away from the nightclubs and concrete jungle.

There's ambient/drone bliss, haunting pianos and soundscapes, experimental sound collages, challenging noise material, dreamy electronica, acid tinged techno, wonky house, cinematic synthwave. Something for everyone.

We're massively proud of this release and think it paints a beautifully distinct musical picture of the place we call home. It's our homage to our "Dear Green Place".

All revenue generated from the 0141 compilation will be donated to the ICU nursing staff at the Golden Jubilee Hospital as a token of gratitude for the quality of attention and support they provide patients and families in their care.

You can stream/download "0141" below or at our bandcamp.

Bricolage Podcast #48 : Kill Them With Noise



Our August podcast is from the mind of local DJ and producer, Kill Them With Noise. You'll be hearing more from him in the coming months but more on that later. For the time being strap yourself in for a trip through some obscure and mysterious electronics. Just over an hour of sputtered rhythms and abstract sound palettes. Chaotic broken beats and hard edged experimental techno are at odds with each other as KTWN manages to squeeze 24 tracks into 67 minutes. It's a warped and mind bending circuit. Plug yourself in and enjoy the ride.

Kill Them With Noise will be appearing on our upcoming '0141' compilation at the end of the month, having contributed a fantastic experimental soundscape for inclusion on the release. We've also managed to nail him down for a standalone release in early 2020 under his "NoiseBlas" alter ego. We're looking forward to sharing his sounds with the world. There may even be one on show in this very mix....

Devras Plexi and Justin Case "Lotus Eaters"(bc047)



"Lotus Eaters" is the convergence of two like minded but also contrasting producers. Both bring their own unique musical spice to the party and mix it together for one compatible release.

Austin native Devras Plexi ushers in his signature gloopy ambient melodies and glitchy textures. His colourful sound palette and sinewave experimentation is on full show and is complimented by some sweet ruptured rhythms.

Local boy Justin Case keeps the obtuse theme rolling but provides that late night energy with his hybrid take on techno and house that swarms and engulfs both those styles with elements of breaks and IDM. The track structures come loose and warped. Packed with bugged out beats and razor synths that are twisting and turning at every opportunity.

Each with their own vision. The combination of these on form producers creates an assemblage of polychromatic and effervescent sounds.
