A talented young guitar player, Baba-X (Luis Cran-Lawrence) bought an MPC2000XL from the Music Swop Shop in late 2009 shortly after he started making beats using a Dr. Sample 202 and a broken record player. Since then his musical stylings have varied from hip hop to slow house to avant jazz remixes, all shown to great effect on this selection of soulful beats.

THIS-THING-001

Here it is, our debut release! Lanky synth nerd MikeKay and obsessive crate digger Wooshie come together to drop some heat for the label’s maiden release, building on their devastating live shows and unreleased beats that have been turning up in all the right places.

  • Track 1
  • Track 2
  • Track 3
  • Track 4
  • Track 5
  • MikeKay (Mike Katz) creates hyperactive sounds for pulsing dancefloors. Expect anything from clunky, sample-driven slow jams to cosmic rave experiments, centered around bubbling jazz chords and future funk rhythms.

    Wooshie (Dylan Michel) is an obsessive crate digger and youtube-meme sample junkie. Perth-born, he has made his mark on the Melbourne scene with his live sets and cerebral, futuristic productions. Traversing into deeper textural territory, Wooshie pushes the mid-range EQ’s to their limits.
