Format Info

LP - Orange Vinyl

140 gram loud cut hi-fidelity coloured vinyl LP with folded 12″ card sleeves in plastic wallets and printed centre labels. Vinyl pre-orders include a bonus sticker pack & artwork zine from Leomi Sadler.

Following on from his previous two KPM-esque library music releases for the label (Plastic Thought & Wyped Out) Debossed sees Howe ramping up his sound into more rhythmically expansive weirdo club-music territory, taking in everything from footwork, drum & bass, electro, juke and breakcore. The Japanese jazz inspired melodic phrasing is as present as ever, which is paired with affectionate nods to Dreamcast gaming & skate video soundtracks, making for a very fun, fresh and generous listen.

“A master of tricksy computer music.” – The Wire

“Playful and insouciant club music that evokes a wild world of chopped-up cartoons”. – Bandcamp New and Notable

“The return of Glasweigian, Joe Howe: a prolific noise maker who you may have otherwise known as Ben Butler & Mousepad & Germlin. He’s been doing wonderful things for many years and there’s a whole world of Joe Howe if you want to get involved!”. – Tom Ravenscroft (BBC Radio 6 Music)
