Paul Cooper

Co-runs Project Squared. Co-runs Project Mooncircle. Has made and released music as Mr Cooper (instrumental hip hop, production for rappers). I started this label as my music taste is branching out from hip hop and electronic “listening” music and is becoming more focused on music to dance to, primarily dubstep and techno and the places inbetween these two genres. I found two artists who deserved to be released on vinyl and decided to make a label for them and hopefully others to follow… Maybe even for my own productions in the realm of techno and dubstep eventually...

Son Lux

Son Lux is Ryan Lott. His debut recording, At War With Walls and Mazes (2008), earned him the title of "Best New Artist" by NPR's All Songs Considered. In 2011 he followed up this release with We Are Rising which Consequence of Sound described as “the dark, operatic middle ground between Owen Pallett and In Rainbows-era Radiohead or Wild Beasts’ fantastic, operatic heights.” In the last 4 years Lott has built an impressive list of collaborators including everyone from indie-rock darlings such as Sufjan Stevens...

Grinny Grandad

If you're going to listen to these songs, then grab a beer, get comfy, sit back and have your sense of humour switched to "Moderate". Imagine Mr Scruff drinking cups of tea with The Chemical Brothers whilst babysitting DJ Yoda and you might start to come close to the sounds infused by Grinny Grandad. Based on the 'scissors and string' mind of Chris Morton, these guys fuse surreal references with old school record-crate creativity and come out of it with an infectious brand of subterranean pop that makes you feel good deep down inside.
