Label: POLYTECHNIC YOU

Release date: 30/03/2017

Barcode: 2090504451079

Catalog no.: PY0000037

Item ID: 445107

Killer debut full length from Berlin based Brit, Mark Vorderhaus (previously the main guy behind earlier label faves Detox Twins). Across the 10 tracks here, you're instantly drawn to that classic early Mute and Some Bizarre sound; Fad Gadget, Vince Clarke, early Soft Cell perhaps, but continued plays reveal not only the darker edge that Mark alludes to above, but a thoroughly modern, of its time, set of gorgeously crafted melodies and a classy songwriting guile, not to mention being stacked top to bottom with potential dancefloor fillers. An absolute must for all minimal synth and electropop heads; it really is a wonderful record and will no doubt disappear dead quick as other PY releases show. Limited to 500 copies.

PYE CORNER AUDIO & FATEN KANAAN - THE DARKEST WAVE/MIRROR LAKE

Repress! The A-side 'The Darkest Wave' features pulsing icy synth drones over which the cool NY narrative owes nods to some '70s Carpenter-eque VHS chillwave soundtrack (not unlike some of Umberto's work of the last decade or so). It's a beautifully evolving, slow burner ... read more »

HOME CURRENT - THAT SUMMER/GELB

HOME CURRENT - THAT SUMMER/GELB

'That Summer' is a beautifully punchy, percussive slice of electronica. This real slow burner, which is best whacked out with the volume hiked up, complements the more stripped down, yet equally melodic flip 'Gelb', that sort of reminds of Yellow Magic Orchestra. Limited to ... read more »
