What seems to be a straight forward video of an underground techno/house live set takes a surreal turn. Coming straight out of Brooklyn, Loud Neighbor live, from their home to your home. Created by yours truly, w0rkt34m (pronounced workteam).

The summer has reached it's end in the Northern Hemisphere as has Loud Neighbor's Escape Control album. The 6 part series is completed by Sandfly, a 12 inch of raw techno sounds. Starting off with the title track, we enter a steamy hot tropical world with squelching synths, hypnotic toms and a driving kick drum that guides you through this vibrant techno jungle. As the record keeps turning, George begins and the mood shifts. We go back in time and begin to dance a jitterbug infused with techno. It's jazzy vibe, grumbling low bass and playful sythns make you want to get up and swing that thing.

Flipping over the record we flash back to the present, with a clean modern techno remix of Sandfly by Tony Rohr vs Layton Giordani. Stripping down the track to it's essences they create their own tensions in the sweaty jungle. Last, but not least, we finish it all off with Mussen and his remix of George. Taking the rawness to the 9th degree with his pounding 909, Mussen creates a dense track for all those old school techno heads. WT07 is available worldwide as long as supplies last. Get it!!!

The source footage of the Black Clouds video was shot during Super Storm Sandy in 2012 by w0rkt34m. Artist Morgan Higby-Flowers took said footage into his glitch realm and created this visual storm of vibrant colors and digitial decay for us all to enjoy.

As the summer chugs along, so does w0rkt34m. Train Daddy is the 5th record of the 6 part series, Escape Control. With this 12-inch Loud Neighbor takes us back to their techno realm. Starting off with the title track we enter the dark, cyclical world of the commuter; stripped down beats and a fat funky bass, along side haunting field recordings and moaning synths. To follow, a round bouncy bass lightens the mood for a moment, but then the storm breaks in the dub-techno track Black Clouds.

Flipping over we have two remixes that both artists called “reworks”. Joop Junior starts this side off by taking Train Daddy to a new level of intensity. Reworking the stems with an acute attention to detail, adding his own hypnotic bass and driving rhythms, Joop achieves his signature peak hour punch. To finish off the record, Gale Talk takes the reigns and brings us back into the summer sun, leaving us with a flirty and fun version of Black Clouds.

WT06 is available world wide.

w0rkt34m is proud to present ESPAÑOL, the 4th edition to the 6 part series, Escape Control. As always, the A-side contains the LN originals. Español starts off the record with booty bumping rhythms, spaced out synths, mixed in with vocals and samples that build up to mega fiesta. Next comes Spineless, a playful track that flirts in-between house and techno, with a funky bass and rich analog synths. The sweet voice of STEEL5000 juxtaposed with the sassy lyrics make for a great revenge anthem that anyone can identify with, especially the ladies.

On the flip side Marcos In Dub, who's voice can be heard in the original track (Madre Mia!), made a classic house remix full of analog synths, phat-funk and some acid flavored soul. Alixander III (from Azari & III) took charge of the Spineless remix, going Frankenstein, 100%. Like a mad scientist, he reworked all the original parts and put them back together to create his own dark, monster track; a mental trip that builds in density to no end, with surprises at every turn. Two very special remixes made by two very talented artists *** please note, international shipping must be calculated accordingly

The Escape Control video was created by Chicago based artist, Jon Cates. His visual interpretation of the track is beautiful and haunting. w0rkt34m is honored to have him participate in this project, not only for his skillz, but also becuase of the major influence his teachings and practices had on Christina back in the day at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

On the third installment of the 6 part vinyl series we find the title track of Loud Neighbor's debut album, Escape Control, accompanied by Constant on the A-side. These 2 tracks, full of broken beats and hypnotics voices are balanced on the other side with some proper techno. Flipping over we discover two solid remixes by techno sweethearts, Alexi Delano and Xpansul.

Mr. Delano was in charge of the Constant remix. Stripping down the track to it's core elements while embracing the dark mood he created a phat droney techno track that can work into many different style sets quite nicely. Xpansul went a different route with his Escape Control remix. Focusing his energy with the voices from the original, he went from broken beats to mega rave. A dancefloor killer for sure.

This 12 inch record is a complete journey from beginning to end, eclectic and harmonious at the same time.

Escape Control is the debut album of the techno band, Loud Neighbor. As a whole it sees the duo experiment with their live set-up, built around an amalgamation of analogue synthesizers, drum machines and digital tools.

‘‘Each individual track has it's own back story, but they all have the same root. We draw inspiration from every day life and translate it through our gear into music; people and relationships in today’s modern world influenced 'Escape Control'. Playing with the names of the computer keys, the title refers to the place technology has in our lives today and the side effects of such an intimate relationship. We live controlled by our digital devices, our status, our emotions, our jobs, and society not to mention the government. With our album we invite you to put down your phone, log off, forget about everything, and be in the present, close your eyes, listen, dance and escape control.’’

The album is being released as a 6 part vinyl series with a wide array of remixes from artists such as Octave One, Alexi Delano and Alixander III. The complete LP is available in zeros and ones at beatport, Juno, iTunes and Amazon. GET IT!


Tacotalk is the 2nd imprint of Loud Neighbor's vinyl series, Escape Control.

Opening this single is the original mix of ‘Tacotalk’, an off-kilter, dropped tempo cut, fuelled by retro 808 style rhythms, growling bass tones and squelching synthesizers. As the composition progresses the duo introduce a smooth analog pad melody to drive the groove, while STEEL5000’s alluring vocal lines are intricately processed to shape up the record as an intriguing and unique piece.

On the flip side we see Woody turn in a magical interpretation of ‘Tacotalk’. The German producer has been an integral part of Berlin’s underground electronic music scene (where he remains today) since the 80’s and held a residency at the legendary E-Werk club during its hey day. Woody delivers a beautifully crafted journey with his mix, multi-layering textures and atmospheres alongside raw, boomy rhythms to create an intense dance floor focused track, stylishly showcasing Woody’s knowledge of electronic music and standing in the industry.

What starts off as a regular day for a lovely couple takes an unexpected turn. The Fellonship video was written, directed and stars Loud Neighbor.

Kicking off the Escape Control series is the original mix of ‘The Fellonship’, which sees Loud Neighbor skillfully blend spaced out synthesizers, punchy analogue drums and chuggy sub bass, alongside sporadic vocal murmurs and warbling hi-pitched sweeps. The focal stages of the record introduce an emotive pad melody and stunningly crafted strings before reverting back to heady rhythm and whirring electronics, veering the record into the advanced stages of Detroit techno with its classy, understated vibe.

On the flip side of the 12’’ we find the Detroit legends Octave One. As expected from the proficient producers who brought us so many classic pieces, the cut storms in from the very beginning with a rugged yet refined groove, as rimshot’s subtly bubble away in the depths of the background, brilliantly meandering around the whispering vocal snippets, dubbed-out synth chords and ever-blossoming acidic bass hook. The latter stages then see the pair introduce their signature cosseting string lines to tail out the release in style and launch w0rkt34m with a bang.

w0rkt34m, pronounced 'workteam'

w0rkt34m (pronounced workteam) is an electronic music label based in Brooklyn, NY with 2 satellite offices. One can be found in the magical island of Utila, Honduras, and the other holds it down in Madrid Centro!, Spain. Run by Loud Neighbor, Xpansul and Marcos In Dub, this eclectic label aims to transcend genres with quality music made from scratch.  With a modern, yet classic sound,  w0rkt34m is a platform that allows producers to explore their artist expression within the realm of underground music. 

The independent label was founded in 2014, launching with Escape Control, the debut album of Loud Neighbor. With an unorthodox approach, the album was released as a 6 part vinyl series.  The original tracks can be heard on the A-sides and remixes by legends such as Octave One to new talent like Joop Junior, can be found on the flip-sides. Catering to the modern world the album was also released on digital and the remix album will be hitting the internet this May for all of those who were not able to get the limited 12" vinyls.

Although new to pressing wax, w0rkt34m is no stranger to the world of underground electronic music.  Originating as an audio-visual production company in Madrid, back in 2007, w0rkt34m has been creating video content for clubs and festivals way before it became an industry standard.  In 2010, w0rkt34m launched its first techno series as a sub-label of True Type Tracks, as well as began producing the infamous interview series, Loving The Alien.
