The Hackney Wick-based music shop is world-renowned and the go-to for everything modular synth. For the last five years, owners Simon Lynch and Phil Ventre have regularly joined forces as London Modular Alliance, performing their signature electro sound at some of the world’s biggest clubs and festivals.
New label Longhaul is their latest venture and will focus on physical releases right across the electronic music spectrum. Electro, IDM, techno, bass, garage, as long as it’s got quailty, it’ll get a look in. The first release is a cheeky, forward-thinking electro EP. No artist or track titles are listed and the artwork is a simple white label. But there’s a heartfelt reason for this understated approach. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross, who provide vital support to those most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The emphasis of the release is about the amazing work they’re doing during this crisis. Limited to 250 units on heavyweight, 180g vinyl, Longhaul #001 will be released on 27th May via the longhaul bandcamp page.
