Blue Notes "Tetrahedron" (bc031)

We’re proud to be able to unveil our final release of 2017 in the form of the full length Bricolage debut from Blue Notes. On “Tetrahedron” the young Glaswegian producer has cooked up a shimmering set of sounds that effortlessly straddle the thin line between ambient and IDM. Emotive melodies and soothing pads mixed with complex and glitchy beats are the calling card, and while the main focus may be on the sculpting of ethereal moods, the overall product showcases both the accessible and the experimental edges of the young production whizz as he carries on slowly carving out that signature Blue Notes sound.

He's also taken the opportunity of a full length album to formally introduce his side project, “C4", to the world with two sharp and jagged, more aggressive natured, tracks that round off the album and give off an indication of the direction he might be turning his creative skills towards.

You can stream the album in full and grab a free DL or PWYW either below or at our bandcamp.

Watch a breathtaking audio/visual for the title track below and check out one of the stand out tracks from the album available for streaming on our Soundcloud.

In The Loop : Episode 23

We've brought the Bricolage advent calendar back for 2017. In the lead up to Christmas, every day, over on our Facebook page, we're sharing some sounds from the diverse pool of talent we've been proud to work with over the last two and a half years.

This particular episode of ITL rounds up the first 8 treats behind the digital doors....

DEC 1st
All Buttons In - 'Cailleach'

"For the first of our 24 treats it’s a new track from Scottish electronic specialist "All Buttons In" in the form of “Cailleach”. In Gaelic mythology, The Cailleach, is a divine hag. Take from that what you will and listen in the link below"


DEC 2nd
Lo-Jacker - 'Dyscalculia (Live)'

"The Irish melodic mastermind has a penchant for sharing his live recordings with the world and this latest offering ticks all the right musical boxes that shape the sounds that we’ve come to know and love from this unique producer."


DEC 3rd
Jaffa Kid - 'Jesmond Acid Memories'

"A slice of acid tinged techno from Newcastle native, Jaffa Kid."


DEC 4th
No Arrival - 'Ochre'

"The full experimental nature of No Arrival is on show in this harmonic piece of abstract ambient."


DEC 5th
Loui Cleghorn - 'Yorick'

"A taster of the first release on the Unstrung label set up by Loui himself. This particular release showcases the darker side of his production mentality."


DEC 6th
Brainwavve - 'Depressurize (Devras Plexi remix)'

"A woozy yet chilled remix from Devras Plexi as he effortlessly puts his own spin on a friends track. Shoegazing goodness."

Be sure to check out the Feedback Alliance for more stuff like this.


DEC 7th
International Debris - 'Soly'

"A piece of melodic “sky music” from the Leicester based producer. A winter warmer that’s brimming with colours." 


DEC 8th
...From The Benthic Zone - 'Lowther'

"A conceptual and experimental piece of buzzing leftfield sound design that musically transcribes the Scottish producers thoughts and feelings on a local radar station."


Be sure to check regularly on our Facebook for the daily opening of the remaining digital doors up until the 24th of December.

Bricolage Podcast #28 : Belial Pelegrim

Our final podcast of 2017 comes from Californian based production wizard and graphic designer, Belial Pelegrim. He's perhaps best known for his insanely consistent and regular output of his own electronic masterpieces but here he's turned his hand to building an impressive mixtape that consists of an array of varying genres that glide and weave along to create a truly surreal and enjoyable listening experience.

It's worth noting that the majority of the tracks on show here were written specifically for this broadcast with Belial handpicking artists and asking them to contribute before curating the tracklist order himself. There's also an exclusive unreleased track from the man himself in the mix. New sounds always make for a fresh and appealing 70 odd minutes of music and the even better news is that at some point, early next year, all the tracks in this podcast will be available on a limited edition CD through Pelegrims own Bandcamp site. All proceeds from the release will be donated to a good cause. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on that front. But for now, click the play button and lose yourself in an immersive collection of exclusive sounds curated by a man with a real ear for idiosyncratic music.

As always you can listen to the podcast below or over on our mixcloud.


Ugliest Man - All Babies Are Ugly
Supply Fi - Svalbard Shuffle
Dark Fidelity Hi Fi - Pebble To Sleeping Water
GrevusAnji - Tearing At The Fabric
Evolverman - Vigilant For The Dawn Of Signs

Headroom 11 : Minerva presents "Founding Myths"

After a short break on the Headroom front we're back with a bang and a truly mesmeric and extensive mix session from Minerva. The Greek/Hungarian producer and DJ is in full on club mode as she takes you on a trip through some of the most recent additions to her expansive collection of music. There's an undeniably fresh feeling to the listening session due to the majority of the tracks being released this year. Minerva kicks off proceedings with a beautifully strange vocal piece from an unknown artist before launching into a rich variation of dancefloor ready house rhythms, stylistic melodic consistencies and plush pad swirls that are all laced with progressive tendencies. There's room for a flawless transition into some harder territory in the form of some grittier techno productions, although the overall deep vibe of the sounds on show remain at the core and then we find ourselves navigated back to the familiar hypnotic melodic elements from earlier but this time sandwiched in between them is some skewered rhythms, euphoric chords and lots of vocal cuts before we filter out of the mix on the same unknown acapella from the intro.

As always you can stream the mix below or at our mixcloud.


1. Unknown Intro
2. Rafael Cerato - Koncept
3. Norris Division - Full Moon
4. Just Breathe - Free Your Mind (Rob Me remix)
5. Spektre - Holdin U
6. Ian O'Donovan - Voodoo Doll
7. AFFKT - Sunday Ghost (Dave Seaman remix)
8. Pleasurekraft - Tarantula (7 Year Itch rework)
9. Eric Louis - Danger (David Grylls remix)
10. The Montini Experience II - My House Is Your House (Tom Hades remix)
11. Oliver Koletzki - Iyewave (Hatzler remix)
12. Black Acid - Quasar
13. Gallya - Detroit
14. Dead Space and Dateless - Psychedelic World
15. Gabriel Moraes - Green Shelter
16. Frankyeffe vs Ithaka - So Get Up
17. Reiner Zonneveld - Dominance
18. Tube and Berger feat Richard Judge - Ruckus (Dennis Cruz remix)
19. Unknown Outro

The Owl of Minerva

Tomorrow night we bring you the latest edition of our Headroom mix series. It's been a while since we've indulged in our 2 hour sessions. It was the end of summer to be exact when Glaswegian heavyweight Boom Merchant locked together a solid collection of his favourite DJ weapons for your listening pleasure.

This time round we have the mysterious music machine that is Minerva settling in behind the decks for her debut Headroom session. We've already had a listen here at Bricolage HQ and you're in for a real treat full of flawless mixing and enthralling electronic music. To get you in the mood for the upcoming session you can have a listen to a few of Minerva's recent mixes including her Bricolage podcast from January this year.

Bricolage Podcast #27 : Blue Notes

Our November podcast is one with a twist, it comes not as a mix of influences, selections or favourite tracks but this time as an album preview of sorts.

On the 11th of December we release the full length album, "Tetrahedron" from Glasgow based producer, Blue Notes. It's our final release of 2017 and we're set to round out the year in fine style with 12 tracks of true sonic diversity that cover ground in the fields of IDM, ambient, rhythmic glitches, drum n bass and industrial leftfield soundscapes.

So, with 4 weeks until the release date, Blue Notes is sharing a sneak preview of what's in store come next month in the form of this exclusive "Tetrahedron" preview. It's worth noting that Blue Notes is taking the opportunity of this full length album to introduce his side project "C4" properly to the world and features two tracks from that alias.

We don't want to give too much away just yet so you'll find a bunch of new and exciting works in this session and you'll need to wait for the rest......

As always you can stream the podcast below or at our mixcloud.

1. Product of Society
2. Juniper Green
3. Sanctuary
4. Tetrahedron
5. Embers (excerpt)
6. C4 - 100 Rounds
7. C4 - Ghost In The Machine

Wednesday, 1 November 2017


A late Halloween present in the form of "Wrek". A horror short from Lost World Media that's soundtracked by our very own Mute Branches.

“A man takes it upon himself to seek out his missing younger brother, and the monster that took him away” Wrek is the culmination of a love for 80s monster flicks, English folklore and societal-horror giants like Romero, Cronenberg, and Landis. Although brief in total expected runtime (around 6 minutes), the film contains a number of strong cinematic references, packed into a tight, tensely paced film.

Writer / Director / Editor: Mathew Hammond Producer: Daniel Hutchinson Starring: Matt Kitson, Sophie Brierley, Tom Sheldon Original Soundtrack: James Cresswell Puppet Creation: Leo Kane Horton Assistant directors: Tommy Hoyle and Jay Middleton

You can also hear the isolated music on the Soundcloud link below.

Ghost Stories 2017

As Hallows Eve arrives again, this year, we’ve once more asked a few artists from the label to give us a Top 5 of their favourite creepy/eerie Halloween type songs for your blood curdling pleasure.

Arran Trax has provided us with a bunch of trick or treat dancing devils and one or two eerie soundscapes. Belial Pelegrim has given us a selection of some of his most ghoulish creations and collaborations. Whilst, Minerva, has selected her Top 5 skin crawling soundtrack excerpts. Lastly, revered selector Loui Cleghorn digs out his most deviant tracks to play out.


  1. Rude 66 - Paranoia

    "First up is this hair-raising slice of pumping Horror Disco, excellently executed by the Amsterdam based analogue-synth guru Rude 66. This 2014 release on the fine Dutch vinyl label Bordello A Parigi is now highly sought after on discogs. Just wait till those vocoder lyrics come in!!!!"

  1. Hesperius Draco -  ASI Kingdom

    "This must be one of the best melodic compositions I have heard in the last couple of years. Majestic, melancholic and ever so slightly malevolent, Draco (Italian, Alessandro Parisi) conjures up images of ghostly armies marching through snow-covered Transylvanian forests."

  1. Scotch - Disco Band

    "What the fuck is going on in this video?' any sane person has to ask themselves.
    So weird it's kinda creepy!!!
    This Italo-Disco classic came out in 1984 on the American Disco label."

  1. U - Friendly Ghost

    "I just LOVE the artwork on this slab of heavyweight vinyl. A subtle sense of mystery from the anonymous U."
  1. Luke Vibert - Halloween

    "Last one is this ghastly acid-trip by the very talented Luke Vibert."


  1. Enfield

    "I'm a big skeptic when it comes to the paranormal, but I'm open-minded enough to never rule anything out. I also love a good ghost story. The Enfield Poltergeist is one of those stories that captured my attention because the documentary really left me wondering what the fuck was going on in that house. This song was my attempted to peak other people's interest and tell a bit of the tale in a soundscape format."

  1. Dismemberment Goblins

    "One of the sub-groups within the Sleepless Collective is the Darksiders. They were putting together a compilation playlist on Soundcloud of music written expressly for a 'Cabin in the Woods' tribute set that focused on "The Purge", where all the monsters in the glass rooms are unleased into the Facility. All of the tracks are rather amazing. Dismemberment Goblins was my choice and my track."

  1. Rosemary

    "One of my good Soundcloud friends and collaborators is the very talented Roots Dubman. He sent me over some strange sounds that inspired me to produce this dark and foreboding, electro-horror track. The name came from Roots informing me that he started putting together his sounds after watching Rosemary's Baby alone in the dark."

  1. Funeral March For The Golem

    "This derge-like processional was inspired by books I was reading on animating inanimate objects with consciousness. Let's just say it's not a good idea to try this out at home. Not a deeply dark track, but fitting for this time of year. If you have a chance, check out the remix that BELP made of the track as well."

  1. Insular Vampire Hovering

    "I always enjoy collaborating with Berlin's Lutz Thuns on dark ambient projects. He and I worked hard at creating a very creepy setting on this one in particular."


  1. Ennio Morricone - Eternity (The Thing)

    "Morricone was mainly famous for soundtracking Spaghetti Westerns before he did the OST for 'The Thing' but that all changed after this. Minimalistic, atmospheric and very, very effective. The descending church organ on this particular track creates a deep sense of tension"

  1. Lady In The Radiator - In Heaven (Eraserhead)

    "This film contains, like, two pieces of music at most but it works really well within the style and overall feel of the horror that is slowly unfolding.  'In Heaven' was written specifically for the film and it helps carry that feeling of intrigue and inevitability through to your ears as well as your eyes."

  1. Krzysztof Komeda - Lullaby (Rosemarys Baby)

    "50 years old this year and it's still terrifying in it's own unique way. Feelings of unease linger all around and Mia Farrow adding vocals brings the creepy levels up."
  1. Harry Warren - Jeepers Creepers (Jeepers Creepers)

    "This is essentially some jazz from the 1930's but the almost ridiculing nature and delivery, personally, make it very scary for me. It appeared in the film of the same name 70 years later and is heavily featured in many different styles and versions which only add to the eerieness!"

  1. Toru Takemitsu - Kwaidan Theme (Kwaidan)

    "I have so much love for Asian horror and I am a bit of a human encyclopedia when it comes to Japanese films and soundtracks in particular. 'Kwaidan' was one of the very first horror film I ever saw and the avant garde theme tune startles me to this day still. So much silence in this one but when the warped use of traditional Japanese folk instruments make themselves known it brings with it a layer of suspense."



    1. Alex Under - Bola 6.1

    "This song is slow, rumbling evil. Ominous as hell and a beautiful way to start a set. This was released on Soma a few years ago curiously enough. There's a Bola 6.2 and a 7 that are more friendly but they dont come close to this transient gem."

    2. Andrea Roma and Mar - Dark Matter

    "This is one of those tunes that I don't think will ever leave my collection. Andrea Roma bringing ever part of his arrangement into a cacophony of dark harmony. Another old favourite."

    3. Loui Cleghorn - Yorick (Boom Merchant remix)

    "A remix by Boom Merchant of my own tune 'Yorick' that is coming out on my own label 'Unstrung' very soon. One of the more aggressive numbers from the Cleghorn collection given a tribal overhaul. Spooky yet inviting and warmly arresting."

    4. Robert Babicz - Cristal Sun

    "Something I've been playing a lot recently. A twisted acid rave number with shifting, contorting synth lines. One of the best Babicz tunes for a good while."

    5. Nick Dow - Goujian

    "I'll let wikipedia do the talking - King Goujian's army was known for scaring its enemies before battle because its front line consisted of criminals sentenced to death who committed suicide by decapitating themselves."


    You can see last years playlists here.

No Arrival "The Chance To Fail" (bc030)

“The Chance To Fail” is the new four track EP from Scottish producer ‘No Arrival’ that perfectly captures his distinct creative tendencies and experimental nature all in one release. From the opener “Earhart”, with its bobbing acidic sounds that intermingle with carefully designed rhythms, to the closing title track that slowly builds off a platform of slow, well placed percs before morphing into a sonic IDM whirlpool of drums and sound design. Inbetween those two tracks you have the ambient, tribal experimentation “Love Will” and the uniquely rhythmic “Savage Human” with it’s slow burning trip hop heart surrounded by a body of melodics and a beautifully placed vocal sample.

No Arrival has weaved together a union of diverse percussive elements and abstract, yet concise, electronic compositions. Miss this one at your pearl.

Listen to album opener "Earhart" on Soundcloud

Quixotic : Bricolage (Label Showcase)

Manchester based after party troupe "Quixotic" recently honoured Bricolage with a special mix consisting purely of material from our back catalogue. It spans a broad range of our techno infused releases and ranges from our early days to the present.

Here's what they had to say:

"Session 6 is a celebration for friends. The forward thinking Glasgow label, Bricolage, recently celebrated their second anniversary. Quixotic have been huge fans of the label since its inception. Label head, Fragile X, has tirelessly and consistently provided a seemingly endless stream of electronic pearls from musicians far and wide for fans to sink their teeth into. From humble beginnings to underground respect, Bricolage has developed over the last 24 months into an open platform for people that think that little bit differently when it comes to listening habits and production traits. Providing and producing ambient, glitch, electronica, IDM, techno and a bit of everything under the electronic umbrella.
To celebrate the more beat driven side of the Bricolage back catalogue, Quixotic resident "General Zero" has mixed together a bunch of his fave techno flavoured tracks released on the label."

Autumn/Winter 2017

August was a relatively quiet month here at Bricolage HQ but we spent the end of summer working away behind the scenes to ensure that there's some real treats lined up for the remainder of the year. Unique podcasts, special guest mixes, two EPs plus the latest volume of our various artists compilation series. All that topped off with our most ambitious release to date in the form our first physical release.


To start off September we had Austin based sound design boffin, Devras Plexi, curate an hour of underground electronic gems from the underground. A unique selection of sounds from a unique talent. This particular podcast has proven to be one of our most popular yet. Listen for yourself below.


As we hit September, Bricolage enters into it's third year of existence. To celebrate this mini milestone we've got three special guest mixes lined up that take a look at a slice of our discography over the last two years.

For the first mix we got Manchester after party troupe "Quixotic" to mix together some of their favourite beat driven tracks from the label. They've been long time supporters of the label and have concocted a variety of tracks from our early days right through until the more current releases.

The second mix will come from Bricolage's own Minerva and explores the more experimental side of our catalogue before friend of the label, Kinoko, closes out the anniversary mixes with a presentation of some of our ambient works. Keep your eyes peeled for them as they drop.


To round off the month we have Oscurito returning behind the decks to provide us with our latest mammoth Headroom session. A two hour extravaganza awaits. The Glaswegian released his second EP on Bricolage in July. The "Eastern Philosophy" EP combined cinematic influences with Eastern tinged melodics and full bodied rhythms.



In October we drop our very first physical release on Bricolage. Over the summer months we brought together an assortment of names from the roster to work on the "Dyadic" project, this collaboration album, consisting of 11 specifically made exclusive tracks, lands at the start of next month. The finished article is a melting pot of sounds from all over the electronic spectrum. This meeting of musical minds will be officially released on limited number CD and digital format on the 2nd of October.

Have an exclusive first look at the artwork below. You can expect a full tracklisting and audio previews in the next few days. Stay tuned.


October also sees a double header from one of our most recent roster additions, No Arrival. His podcast lands in early October followed by a new 4 track EP "The Chance To Fail" at the end of the month. Check out his contribution to our last VA compilation back in June below.



We start off November with another double header. Glaswegian electronic experimentalist, Blue Notes, drops both his first podcast and standalone release for the label. Both are guaranteed to be sonic works of art.

Have a listen to the full length "Hymn" collection from earlier this summer.


Our last Headroom of the year will come in late November and is provided by the diverse mixing skills of Minerva. She followed up her 2016 "Oligarch" track on Bricolage with a rousing all vinyl podcast for us back in January this year. We're excited to give her free reign over the extended two hour timescale of Headroom before the year's out and you can fully expect a stellar journey with many a twist and turn.



December kicks off with a podcast from the scarily consistent US producer, Belial Pelegrim. This is a man that is continually producing flawless and out there yet accessible music and we're sure his podcast will be in a similar vein. This is yet another mix that we're incredibly excited about landing in our inbox. It'll be that good.

Check out his phenomenal production skills on "Exoskeleton" which was released on Bricolage this summer.


We round off the year with Volume 6 of our Various Artists compilation where we'll once again be bringing plenty of new and intriguing sounds to your ears courtesy of more specially handpicked artists from around the world. We've already started the demo and selection process on collating new and interesting producers for Volume 6 and we'll feed you more info on this release as it progresses.


The remainder of 2017 is shaping up to be special. Join us for the ride.

Bricolage Podcast #25 : Devras Plexi

Tonight we hit a quarter century of podcasts as we glide into our 3rd year of existence. To mark this mini milestone we invited electronic maestro, Devras Plexi, to contribute his first mix for the label. He's put together an hour of hidden gems full of radiating melodies and unique palettes alongside broken but elegant rhythms that are soldered with digital experiments overflowing with pop sensibility. Intriguing patterns, warm, playful sounds and all manner of genre defying works are littered throughout yet it never loses it's key, bright, elements and brings proceedings to an end with an exclusive unreleased track by Devras Plexi himself which is rather ironically titled, "Ender". Given that his own productions are abstract, intricate and catchy, we had an inkling that this mix would be something a bit different from the norm and it's safe to say it more than delivers on that front. This years September podcast is a perfect coming together of sweet tempered sonic selections to lead us into the Autumn months. Listen in and treat your ears to a bit of musical escapism.

As always you can listen below or over on our mixcloud.

Bricolage Podcast #24 : Loui Cleghorn

Just over a year after his 2016 Headroom mix, Loui Cleghorn returns to the fray for our latest podcast. The swirling , lush, electronics and intricate melodies are back but this time they're backed up with a plethora of even brighter, emotional sounds . There's an almost filmic nature to elements of the mix as soaring string sections and pads take centre stage occasionally before retreating to let the rhythm take over once again. It's a powerful and fluid mix from a man with a finely tuned style and musical palate. Lots of layers, big synth lines, crescendos and an impressive flow make Augusts podcast a sublime piece of ear candy.
