Polytechnic Youth

Polytechnic Youth

Profile:
A home based micro label, initially run out of a Crouch End kitchen space, (recently expanded into an 8ft Crouch End bedroom) that started 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' releases range from tiny run lathe cuts (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) to larger 300/500 LP runs, 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....?
