In The Loop: Episode 27

Our latest edition of In The Loop casts an eye (and ear) on the recent productions of another selection of producers from the roster.


Strange off kilter rhythms, odd sound design and laid back guitar....

A stark contrast in pace with rolling, scattered percussion, galloping bass and drips of acid.



"Verdant Sphinx" sees International Debris build a slow burning downtempo gem to lose yourself in....



Some tense and moody experimental and industrial tinged electronica that clicks, growls and pulses...



"Obsolete Waterway" and "Creaky Nowhere BGM" have that signature Mute Branches lo-fi aesthetic. Drifting ambient soundscapes and maybe even a NES sample...



Melody is always the main ingredient of Lo-Jackers creations and "Aquarius" is no different. Chimes, bleeps, warm bass and delightful drum work.



Epic summer ambient soaked in nostalgia.....

Bricolage Podcast #33 - Dark Fidelity Hi Fi (Live RSD 2018 set)

Our May podcast gives you the chance to immerse yourself in the captivating and hypnotic sounds of Dark Fidelity Hi Fi as we bring you an exclusive recording of his live set from this years Record Store Day festivities at Reel Around The Fountain Records in Manchester.

The full line up for the event involved DJ sets from Bricolage associate "Kinoko" and Bricolage label head "Fragile X" before the headline slot was filled by the machines and keyboards of DFHF.

Richard Jones, the main man behind DFHF, is clearly in his element when he performs in a live setting. It clearly gives him freedom and total control over every single noise that breaks through the system. This short but sweet half hour set sees him roam through his astonishing catalogue of sounds. It's littered with a range of shifting drum work, delicate keys, pad washes, mesmerising glitch patterns, soft and pulsing bass arrangements, attentive breakdowns and perfectly placed samples that are all sewn together with a craftmanship that is a joy to behold as he lets his 'no wave' style flourish. The set features new material from his latest album 'Gentle Static Flow' that was released on the 20th of April. Find a link for that release and the other relevant social media links below.
