A thread for Modern Love-rs
So I thought I'd start a thread for Modern Love, and their weird brand of noise/experimental/deep techno. In the last 12 - 18 months they have been on fire, with Demdike Stare's Elemental releases, as well as Andy Stott's amazing Passed Me By/We Stand Together double album.

These guys are also responsible for Claro Intelecto's Warehouse Sessions from 2006, as well as a string of releases from Deepchord (as DeepChord presents Echospace), so they have some great dub techno chops as well.

Anyone else been feeling their output?


Upcoming Works:
5 Apr - Tessela + Kowton, Lounge
13-14 Apr - Pleasure Planet 24hr 1st Bday, Lounge
9 May - Capacity 300: Inigo Kennedy

Permanent clearance by: #1-01

Yeah, great label.

Basically anything by Intelecto and/or Stott is gold. That Deep Chord, Pendel Coven and Demdike Stare make regular appearances makes for a pretty special label.

Intelecto's Warehouse sessions was massive as far as I am concerned (may have even have been the precursor to Scott latest ridiculousness). It is like two have been in an on going battle.

Was primarily a Dub Techno label for some time (a quality one at that) but the transformation in the last couple of years has been quite interesting. They really have developed a warped, industrial sound.

Make sure you check out those older MLZ releases, bombs, all of them.

Andy Stott is amazing, one of my top 3 producers ever, and often number 1 after I've let his tunes destroy my monitors through a listening session. Has he ever been down to Oz?

But despite my love for Stott, and the dub sounds of modern love (MLZ!), my fav would have to be Move D - Drone, lovely head down lose yourself shit, late late night stuff . Lucky enough to have it on vinyl.

Awesome label.

As far as I know Andy has not been to Australia on a tour or else I would've known about it, unless it was when I was living in Tokyo.

It would be fantastic to see him for a 2hr live set. It'd be a game venue to offer up its system for that. Hopefully summer brings us some Stott, Wadsworth, Surgeon and a Underground Quality party ft the entire crew (spesh Fred P).

I've had he pleasure of listening to this at about 5am on the way home on a cold grey morning.

I've reconsidered my position, and this it not a drunk post but, Modern Love is a hipster douche bag label.

Dammmmmmn son! One of the reasons I wanted to head to Unsound Adelaide was for Demdike but seeing as I'm out of the country for a while I'm really gutted. A Melbourne show will be superb!

(I picked the right year to leave the country didn't I? )

Very excited to be helping put this show together. In the similar situation of "couldn't go to Adelaide to see them", so was happy to book them a date in Melbourne.

It will be a different unique set to the Adelaide Festival performance FYI, and the full A/V setup will be present. Not seen them before, cannot wait.
