Polytechnic Youth is a new label concentrating on experimental / minimal synth / library sounds and primitive electronics. Billed as being a “micro label for vinyl heads”, it’s only means of contact is via it’s facebook page and it’s private press inspired releases might run from 5 copies of a 7” to 100 LPs via 23 lathe cut 5”’s. Whatever the plants allow PY to do, they will explore it….
It is run by Dom (Great Pop Supplement / Deep Distance) and a shadowy consortium including Karen Novotny X amongst others. All it’s artwork, sleeves and accompanying films are equally spread between artist and label and is a real ‘hands on’ co-operative venture, and it’s logo was designed by Bill Roe of ‘Trouble in Mind’ records.
This is confusingly the label’s third release despite it having a PY5 catalogue number- the last LP was a “2-in-1” (2/3) by CHXFX and PY4 7” up shortly, is a pressing of 68 -with each copy hand cut- 7”.
‘Formatory Apparatus’ is the brainchild of Dutch synth prodigy Bence Meijer, brandishing heavy nods to that killer post punk, bedroom experimental / minimal / DIY electronics groove so revered around these parts. 11 formidable pieces and a killer LP.
Pressed in an edition of 100 numbered / stickered copies. Bar these copies with us here at Norman, the pressing is sold out already.
Vinyl LP £13.99
