Polytechnic Youth

Polytechnic Youth

Profil:
A part time, home based "micro" label, run from a Crouch End flat that began it's life in March 2014. Run by Dom (with the experience of 4 previous labels behind him) it's output is still perhaps best described by the label's facebook heading: "library sounds | electronic experiments in kosmische | primitive electronics as a soundtrack to physical education | a micro label for vinyl heads".

Its' (self distributed) releases range from full run 300/500 copy LPs (that -and to kill off a common myth- make all the regular shops) to tiny run lathe cuts, often released at a pre-arranged time (on facebook, sometimes played inside out, sometimes with glow in the dark spindle adaptors, across 5"/7"/8" 45s) and always lovingly packaged and (with lathe cuts) released at various odd times of the label's choosing; be it 3pm on a Christmas Day on one occasion, or whenever takes its' fancy....

The label actively seeks to run itself on something of a co-operative basis, whereby artists or fans of the label are encouraged to create sleeves, inserts, film clips or add a PY cat. no. to a release of their own. Recent forays include graphic designer Nick Taylor's PY screen print in a numbered ed. of 66 (PY42) Tomorrow Syndicate's creation of Polytechnic Youth Pale Ale (PY49), not to mention 'Trouble in Mind' head, Bill Roe's label logo design.

Both a key starting point as well as a working ethic of sorts, is that with the steady trickle of cutting lathes now finding their way into the homes of enthusiastic, yet untrained amateur cutting engineers, parameters are constantly changing within vinyl cutting. No longer are you forced to endure tedious waiting times for new releases- so instead, Polytechnic Youth are able to supply artwork and audio masters on a monday and have a new record finished and selling (out) on a friday night. This might just be a brexit busting way for the future....?

The label runs a mailorder list on: thegreatpopsupplement@hotmail.com -write to Dom at this address and he will add you to the list ensuring you won't miss a release OR simply tune in to the label's facebook page frequently where all ordering instructions for each record appear pre release.

The website (www.polytechnicyouth.com) acts mostly as a reference site to the label's discography, linking each release to it's listing here, images of each sleeve and occasionally an accompanying film clip. It isn't really a starting point for orders....
