Polytechnic Youth

Polytechnic Youth

Profile:
A relatively new, home based micro / boutique label -call it what you will. Set up in March 2014.

Musically, the facebook page heading still perhaps sums it up best: "library sounds | electronic experiments in kosmische | primitive electronics as a soundtrack to physical education | a micro label for vinyl heads".

Its releases range from tiny run lathe cuts (released at an agreed time on facebook, sometimes played inside out, sometimes with glow in the dark spindle adaptors, across 5"/7"/8" 45s) to larger 300/500 runs, always lovingly packaged and 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 if you like, is that while pressing facilities now exist in even the most enthusiastic, untrained amateurs' homes (god bless them), the goalposts have now changed within vinyl cutting. Gone are the tedious waiting times at pressing plants for Record Store Day; instead, Polytechnic Youth are able to supply artwork and audio masters on a monday and have a new record finished and selling on a friday night.
