Designer: Jason Smith
Type of music: Quality electronic dance music
Notes: These records seem like objects from an alien culture. That has little to do with the gradual flight of music from physical media and a lot more to do with the vivid, glowing colour and the playfulness of Jason Smith’s approach. As autumn segues into winter and darkness increasingly encroaches on grey London days, these 12s shout out that summer, fun and modernity can exist anywhere and are in fact a state of mind. Buy these records and you’ll see what I mean.

Thanks again to J.
