Record labels: North Star, Demon, Sonoton, Focus Music
Olleys’ influences – “Ah influences, it all starts in 1977, an impressionable 13 year old gets played Tomita by his music teacher and over the next couple of years hears Jarre, Kraftwerk and Gary Numan on the radio, who can forget seeing Are Friends Electric on TOTP for the first time!, wonders what those instruments are, gives up playing the trumpet, and the rest is history, thirty years later and synths are still my thing.”
Olley is a Composer, engineer, producer, remixer and session player. He writes libray music for TV, Film, Radio etc. releases an album every now and then…
BIOG from Olleys’ wife – “Olley has been a muso since childhood, he’s been in bands as the keyboard player and in more recent years has been composing and producing stuff on his own and in collaboration with other muso’s. He’s very quiet about his successes, his first album sold 10,000 copies within the first few months, he’s played Glastos and he has library music published in loads of different countries all over the world.”
ED - what a nice chap!
Gagarin is the solo project of Graham “Dids” Dowdall who has operated on the outer reaches of music for many years, working with the likes of Nico, John Cale etc and is currently a member of Pere Ubu and also Roshi feat. Pars Radio.
As Gagarin he makes moody atmospheric electronica characterised by contrasts - urban and pastoral, melody and noise, beats and field recordings.
His last album Biophilia was widely acclaimed being described as ” electronica in its rawest sense ” in Mojo and ” Deeply beautiful ambient electronica at it’s very best ” in Musicweek.
WolfePhunken is the solo moniker of WeirdGear founder and all round good guy Paul Wolfe. Paul has worked tirelessly for many years with WeirdGear and more recently diverting into label affairs with Magico Meccannisimo Recordings. He can also be found keeping you dancing during his weekly dj sets at a function near you or on the WeirdGear Radio Show on Ship Full of Bombs.
Pauls’ Points remix was a journey into the Dub Realms and perfect for pedestrian Summer days. His commitment to experiment shows no bounds
Paul is 5’ 10” in cuban heels and is fuelled by energy drinks and welcomes the ladies to take his nuts from a bowl of bombay mix
With humble beginnings with a Yamaha DJX, Paul is an avid synth collector. His epic and cinematic sound design evokes imagery and emotion and working as a lighting designer, Paul’s music is always written to a visual track. His first concept album, Behind The Clock, being an audio story of an old man experimenting with time and space. Remixing ‘Points’ has been an enjoyable challenge and an area of work he’s now expanding into.

USRNM is Stuart Bowditch. He is an eminent musician, writer, artist, nice bloke and DJ.
Here are some of the places he can be found online. This remix created is a real banger from Stuart and we are proud to be one of the first to experience this new sound excursion into a harder techno sound on our remix.
Cloud & Owl
Creating organic-electronic music to daydream and dance to.
Brought together by a shared love of frenetic dance energy, guitars and glam-dysfunction, it was during a lunar eclipse that Gaz Cloud and Owlin Sanna first discovered a shared mysticism and adoration of melodic synth exploration. A desire to explore similar passions in a city which never sleeps had brought them both to London from their respective homes of Devon and Dublin. It was the best decision either of them had ever made.
Together, they came fourth in the Glade 2011 Homegrown DJ competition with an innovative 30-minute mix (which you can check out on their mixcloud)
In September 2012, they began their own online radio show, Insurgent Souls on Barricade Radio. The show goes out every Thursday night between 10-Midnight BST and spans an eclectic breadth of sounds from techno, dubstep, progressive house, trance, prog-rock, post-rock, folk, psy-folk, minial, ambient, experimental and beyond. Previous guest–mixers on the show include WeirdGear, Bioni Samp, Simon Heartfield, Stuart Russell, Stuart Bowditch, James B L Hollands & Ben Glass.
Citing a long list of influences from Tangerine Dream, Sasha & Digweed, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and System 7 through to Robert Anton Wilson, Haruki Murakami, Doctor Who, Shulgin and the sunrise sky, Cloud and Owl seek to make music wrought with the beauty and chaos of nature with a blend of rhythmic beats and ethereal sounds.
Star-music. Earth-music. Sounds to get lost in.
