A chance meeting one dark lonely night by the side of the information superhighway and a shared love of forgotten UK post punk 7'' singles has brought two dark lords together to take the darkroom to another level.
“Music For The Lost And Dead” marks a collaboration between Sheffield producer/vocalist Bozzwell and Montreal-based overlords Vosper.
Collectively both camps bring together their love of songwriting, production, techno and everything electric, amalgamating these elements into a sound that is both unique and powerful. Drawing on influences such as Bauhaus, The Sisters Of Mercy, Bowie, New Order, Joy Division, Basic Channel and all things for the dancefloor the hivemind has come up with something different, leftfield and decidedly of the moment.
Vosper have carved themselves out a rightly earned spot on the techno map after the release of their super smash single” Release” on Paris label Meant, and have seen their carefully crafted darkwave sound find its way in A-list record box all over the globe whilst setting the cooler dancefloors alight with their own. Bozzwell on the other hand has been dipping in and out of both the mainstream and the underground with his releases as Hiem which first appeared on the radar with their global smash ‘She's The One’ on Crosstown Rebels and also his recent solo success as Bozzwell on imprints such as Firm records and Clouded Vision.
Remixes come courtesy of UK duo Eskimo Twins, who twist “Music For The Lost and Dead” into an acidic floor smasher, house upstart Jonny Cruz, Clouded Vison honcho Matt Walsh, and Australia’s The Finger Prince.
