FaltyDL 'Harcourage'

FaltyDL ‘Harcourage’

We’ve been very excited to work on the artwork for the forthcoming FaltyDL album ‘Hardcourage’. The vinyl gatefold features hand-painted artwork inside and 2x innersleeves. Released by Ninja Tune in Jan 2013. There’s also a poster and T’shirt to follow. See more on our site.

There’s also a little Ninja Tune mini-site based around the album.

FaltyDL 'Straight & Arrow'

FaltyDL ‘Straight & Arrow’

Our first sleeve for long-term friend and inspiration FaltyDL, and, our first design for the legendary Ninja Tune! It’s really been an honour on both counts. ‘Straight & Arrow’ is available on 12″ and 7″ and a rather nice 12″ Picture Disc. All available for pre-order now from the Ninja shop. There’s a pretty great Four Tet mix thrown in for good measure too!

La Boca x Shout Out Out Out Out


We’re very happy to once again be working with our Canadian pals Shout Out Out Out Out. Here’s a peep at the cover we’ve designed for their new album Spanish Moss and Total Loss.

Depth Charge

Today we are mostly listening to our old friend (and often enemy) Depth Charge. Our studio wouldn’t exist without him. Some of these tracks are 20 years old. Genius – no question.



Over the past few months we’ve been working with our Parisian friends at Versatile Records on a special new project titled Aladdin. Here’s a snippet of the artwork (above) for the debut album and (below) the first 12″ of remixes. Endorsed by the La Boca Sound System and highly recommended for anyone experiencing consistent relationship problems.

Arcadion – More Petrol (2011)


It seems DC Recordings are back! We’ve just completed the sleeve for the debut album by Arcadion. We’ve had a sneaky listen and it’s instantly in the top 5 of our all-time fave DC releases. More news soon we hope…

Alice Gold – Cry Cry Cry (2011)


The second single we created for Alice Gold was Cry Cry Cry. The brief for this was quite simple, “an explosion of emotion please”. Again, all about the details.
