In-Store: The Cyclist x Waxtek (Overload Liverpool)

In-Store: The Cyclist x Waxtek (Overload Liverpool)

Overload Liverpool joined us at Inverted Audio Record Store in Peckham on Saturday 8th June (5-8pm) to celebrate release of an exclusive 12-inch compilation with all vinyl DJ sets from The Cyclist and Waxtek.

Limited to just 50 units, 'OVRLPL002' is a 5-track white label compilation featuring freaked-out electro, warm house, deep dub cuts, and gorgeous ambient from The Motorist, The Cyclist, Waxtek, Puncta and Aaron Thomas.

Born in Northern Ireland and now based in Liverpool, Overload Liverpool label boss Andrew Morrison aka The Cyclist is best known for creating a lo-fi, analog, psychedelic club sound that he aptly defines as “tape throb”. Influenced by an eclectic assortment of music ranging from Krautrock and 60’s Psychedelia to House, Techno, Jungle, Breakbeat, Trance and Dub.

In addition to The Cyclist moniker, Morrison produces under a number of other aliases, namely Buz Ludzha, Gongue, Indopan and The Motorist, on iconic labels such as Stones Throw, Leaving Records, 100% Silk, Hypercolour, All City and Music Is For Losers, as well as his own label Tape Throb Records.

Morrison pushes the unique distortion of magnetic tape to its extremes, crafting mesmerising textures and grooves through layers of synths, samples, vocals, battered analog drum machines and heavily-processed live instruments resulting in electronic music that is both visceral and cerebral, replete with deeply nostalgic yet eminently contemporary undertones.
