Multiversatile This album is so tight, the write up doesn’t do it justice. The miracle is these tapes were found—not that they’re old or amateur.

Amazing work, Favorite track: Xenopsin.

Richard Hunt This is an impressive piece of work for its time, and could easily have sat next to any of the Warp acts or on the Rephlex roster.

Favorite track: Panaflex Sunrise.

Scott Stalham Sublime banging lushness, easily my favourite Special Request material by a country mile.

So glad the tapes were found, super job on the mastering also, can we have more tunes like this please?


10/10 Favorite track: Double Rainbow.

Cone Part 2/4 of Paul Woolford sticking to his word: 90's archives dusted off. Reminiscent of Polygon Window at times with odd Detroit Techno leanings. Favorite track: Shoreline.

about

Bedroom Tapes is comprised solely of lost material from a recently discovered box of cassettes that emerged in the process of a house move. These tracks capture some of Paul Woolford’s most wide-eyed and naïve creative impulses at a tender age.

Seemingly lost forever, some were part of sessions that led to him being signed to now-defunct UK techno imprint Blue Basique. This is the first chapter in this archive and an intimate portrait of the artist at a key stage of his creative development.

The tracks have been carefully mastered with a loving hand by Matt Colton who has been meticulous to retain their idiosyncrasies.

Released on 2xLP vinyl - Cut and mastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis, manufactured at optimal media, Germany.
