“Remember albums? Well, we thought it was high time we put one out. And then we thought, how should we approach this? How do we honour the form rather than just putting out what is essentially nothing more than an extended EP of Taro slayers? We signed up electronic extraordinaire Simon Heartfield, that’s how. Simon has more albums under his belt than the amount of LPs you’ve listened to in full so far this year. And just for us, he’s created his first all-techno long player, made predominantly with the analogue hardware he is known to use for his immersive electronic live sets. This is techno for the heads.”
