First of two strictly limited LP's from this Incredible new project fusing elements of everything from fragmented dub to Turkish, Iranian and West Indian library records, through to Scandinavian drone and Chicago House, carefully brought to life by Berlin's Dubplates and Mastering and limited to 300 copies for the world...* Demdike Stare is a long-in-the-making hookup between two shady characters operating at the fringes of Manchester's fragmented music scene: Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Miles has been a longtime affiliate of Modern Love as one half of Pendle Coven and under his own MLZ alias, while Canty is one of the city's most recognisable vinyl collectors, carrying an obsession with everything from obscure Nordic Doom records to Anatolyan funk albums, fuelled by his involvement with the Finders Keepers label. [...]  The tracks draw on elements from Turkish, Indian, Iranian, African and West Indian film soundtracks alongside Finnish drone records, classic House templates, punctured dub, modified techno and the arctic noise perfected by Mika Vainio. Original sources and dense analogue experiments weave around eachother with little care for convention or stylistic expectation, instead throwing the pair's extensive musical knowledge into a set of tracks that, quite brilliantly, defy categorisation.
