Cat No: ARC13
An archival release here from the brilliant Warp offshoot Arcola. Black Lodge’s electro jam ‘Hotline’ was originally scheduled for release in the early 2000s by Mo’ Wax, but with the label closing the track has been sat in limbo ever since. Now the Mancunian producer has dusted off ‘Hotline’, along with five other synchronous productions, for MWR157. This is a collection of odd and strangely misleading jams that take in many of the trends of the time, from the clunky beatwork of J Dilla to ‘Mo Wax 4’s clanging garage shuffle.
