Nova Noma "Atlas" (bc016)

"Atlas" is the debut album from Glaswegian producer Nova Noma and what better way to showcase your musicianship than an array of sounds as pristine as this collection. It's a release that swirls and glides it way through chill out territory. Layers of rippling synths, fractured beats, glistening melodies and expertly placed electronic string arrangements. Throw in a selection of deftly used dialogue samples and guest vocals from Vena and you have all the ingredients for a simply majestic debut. "Atlas" is an album that demands your full attention from start to finish, from the prelude of the title track to the postlude closer of "Omega". The production skills and melodic know how on show from Nova Noma are practically flawless. Everything flows, everything fits. The tracklisting order has been set out to perfection and takes the listener on a dream like, upbeat journey. It's positive, thought provoking and uplifting chill out music. Tailor made for a warm summer evenings with your headphones.

The album can be streamed and DL below or at the Bricolage bandcamp page.

The download comes with a PDF booklet of beautiful individual artwork for each track.

Fragile X "Arboreal" (bc015)

Our latest release is the ambient, tribal soundsccapes of "Arboreal" from Fragile X. It's a body of work that's been two years in the making. A real labour of love that finally gets to bear its fruits through Bricolage. The music itself is an escapism into the trees. It could be a meridian forest, it could be an African jungle, your overgrown back garden or even your local park. Choose your own adventure. Found sounds, field recordings and tribal drum patterns weave into intricate organic and ambient structures and atmospheres. Elements of the worlds natural environment coming together with carefully constructed pads and melodies to provide the listener with a journey to get lost in.

It starts off with the sow burning Geoglyph before moving onto ethnic drones, rhythms and instrumentation with the duo of Lepidoptera and Gecko. Dawn Chorus is next and is the most upbeat track on show. A calming intro gives way to tribal drums and a melodic arpeggio hook that's inspired by bird song. Closing track, Sleeping In The Trees, rounds off the EP with a soothing ambient outro.

You can stream and download the full album below or at our bandcamp.

Night Time Bassline : Paradise (Music Video)

Last month, Night Time Bassline released the "No Work, Just Play" EP through Bricolage. It was full of modern electronica, fused with house, disco and funk styles. "Paradise" is the opening track from the EP and best encapsulates the feel of the release and the good time, summer vibes. Digi Aye have cut together a montage of positive and uplifting summer based scenics to go along as a visual stimulant with the track. 

You can download "Paradise" and the full Night Time Bassline EP for free or "pay what you want" at our bandcamp or below.

In The Loop : Episode 14

July is shaping up to be a big month for the label. It's a jam packed month with every Monday of the month providing you with releases and mixes. There's also a few new audio/visuals coming your way plus the announcement of two new members to our constantly expanding roster and last but not least a remix competition.

We started the month off with our monthly podcast this past Monday. It's a cerebrum challenging journey from Gregor Garnutsi that's full of jazz, ambient, techno and much much more. Have a listen and submerse yourself below or on mixcloud if you haven't already.


On the 11th of July, label head, Fragile X releases his ambient, tribal EP "Arboreal". It's been over 2 years in the works and is finally good to go. Stay tuned to his soundcloud account for previews coming this week ahead of the release. In the meantime you can preview the artwork below.


On the 25th of July, we release the full length debut album from Nova Noma. It's guaranteed to be full of his trademark sounds and epic electronic masterpieces. Blissed out, chilled out electronica is to be expected but you can wager on a few more energetic numbers on the release too. Preview "Atlas" below.


This Friday night (8th July) we unveil our latest audio/visual. It's a summer themed, beach based effort from our visual team "Digi Aye" for the track "Paradise" from our most recent release on Bricolage, the "No Work, Just Play" by Night Time Bassline. Check out the track in question below and be sure to grab yourself a free download/pay what you want copy from our bandcamp.


Our new arrivals in July come in the form of the recently birthed Glasgow electronic project "futurendeavours" and "Loui Cleghorn". The former consists of two enigmatic and secretive local producers with some huge sounds in the pipeline that they plan to release through our label very soon. Genre defying, 10 minute plus tunes are their speciality. The latter name is a big coup for Bricolage. Loui has released on some excellent and well known labels including German underground titans Traum and Resopal. He brings a wealth of talent and experience to the table both in terms of production and mixing skills. You can expect his first Bricolage EP to drop in August but before that he will be curating Volume 5 of our Headroom mix series to be released this month. You can expect some more info and full introduction posts and bios to our latest label additions next week.


As for the remix competition, it's based around one of Loui's tracks from his upcoming EP in August. The competition and its details will be aired towards the end of the month and full stems will be made available. The competition is open to all Bricolage and non Bricolage artists. With the two winning remixes joining the EP release. The judges will be Loui and Fragile X.

Stay tuned for more info soon and be sure to keep in touch with all our July happenings via our Facebook page. It's gonna be a huge month :)

Bricolage Podcast #11 : Gregor Garnutsi

Our July podcast is possibly our most eclectic and varied session yet. It comes from the imagination of Gregor Garnutsi. Interchangeable beats and tones, ambient gems, portions of jazz, solo sections, blobs of techno, an acid shower, old school breaks, excerpts of the custom music scale known as the Colundi Sequence and even a bit of Queen. You'd be forgiven for thinking that these sounds wouldn't mesh well and that things could go awry but you'd also be wrong. It's chaos but it's organised chaos at it's finest. Everything is fused together at the perfect junctions, making this podcast a mind bending but insanely enjoyable journey. A musical transcript full of dips, dives, tranquility and bedlam. Garnutsi himself describes it as "summer chill for a lucid dreamers thrill".

As usual you can stream the mix below or at our mixcloud page.

Sunday, 3 July 2016


Our July podcast lands next week and comes from the unique Gregor Garnutsi. He released the track "TL33" on our latest compilation, Volume 3, back in April.

Episode 7 is a fantastic listen, full of expertly crafted music and a chat with Daniel Love, the man behind "The Lucid Dreamer's Guide To The Cosmos" book.

You can find a link to the Kickstarter page for the upcoming book here.
