Sentient Beats

Devras Plexi is one of the most, if not the most, unique artists we've had the pleasuring of working with since our inception. Earlier this month he self released his latest album "Sentient Beats". A collection of skewered and trippy electronic gems. The perfect introduction to his sound for anybody who is unaware of the the production skills at the Austin natives finger tips.

"Sentient Beats" is a great overall release from a truly diverse artist with the ability to effortlessly create chaotic beauty from his magical sound palettes. We highly recommend a listen and purchase.

*We'll be releasing an EP from the man himself this spring. Keep your ear to the ground and your eyes on our pages for more info coming soon.*

futurendeavours "Yautja Blood" (bc032)

We welcome ’futurendeavours’ back to the label for our first release of 2018. The Glasgow duos forte is churning out expansive, hypnotic, electronic sagas and that’s exactly what we’ve got on our hands with “Yautja Blood”. It’s a vast terrain of sounds propelled forward by complex interlinking rhythms and dark toned, sci-fi influenced, pad work. Eerie and ominous without being too overbearing on the senses. A  deep industrial warmth adds depth to the almost electricity like basslines that portrude through the futuristic sound design and broken beat structures as ’futurendeavours’ take you on a trip through their brooding and cinematic creation.

You can stream and support the artists and label either below or at our bandcamp.

Bricolage Podcast #29 : Loui Cleghorn (NYE Live Set)

We rumble on into 2018 with a bang as we bring you our first podcast of the year and it's no ordinary podcast either. We're proud to be able to bring you Loui Cleghorns live set from the secret NYE party thrown by Glasgow powerhouse label, Tribal Pulse. Loui decided to break from the norm of a straightforward DJ set and took the opportunity to showcase a chunk of his own material in different ways through hardware, loops and his own stems. It's a bold and brave move that pays major dividends.

As always you can stream the mix below or over at our mixcloud.

Here's what Loui had to say about the ideas behind his live set

"The reason I do these sets is to do stuff I’ve never done before. In this case I wanted to start a set by taking elements of 4 or 5 of my own tunes and creating something new that I could play around with and use to dictate where the set went. There are a few tunes in here i haven’t come up with names for and that would be one of them. Besides that it’s a nice way for people to hear your new ideas without having to release them, or at least before you do.

The only hardware used in this set is a Livid Cntrl:R used to trigger stems, control effects and automate a few extra instruments on Ableton if I fancy jamming something out. I also use a Roland JDXi which can be synced to your main stems and loops on your DAW. I tend not to bother though as latency can be a bitch. Plus I feel it just sounds more authentic (and also way more fun) just to play the thing raw!

I performed this on new years eve over the bells at a party for Tribal Pulse whom I’d like to thank along with Bricolage for the opportunity to do this. You guys are awesome!"
