“14 tracks: The Art Of Muslimgauze”

The idiosyncratic and nebulous catalogue of Manchester's late Bryn Jones (1961-1999) aka Muslimgauze is one of the most prescient in modern electronic music. It's practically unparalleled in terms of sheer size and scope, but more importantly by dint of a wide-reaching and unique sonic aesthetic inspired by his fiercely personal perspective. In his lifetime, Bryn released some 100 records, CDs and tapes for countless labels, with that number more than doubling posthumously: new releases of archival material and remixes continue to emerge through his longterm supporters, Staalplaat. The DIY project first emerged in the early '80s to forge an unprecedented hybrid of Middle Eastern, sub-continental and North African samples with hardware-based electronics. His palette of concrète field recordings, ambient atmospheres and industrial collage foreshadowed the work of everyone from Demdike Stare and Shackleton to Wanda Group or Vatican Shadow and Fatima Al Qadiri and yet his work is arguably massively underrated or even unknown to many. We've sifted through some 100 odd releases (1326 tracks!) from our database to give the broadest overview of his mindblowing oeuvre: we could've easily done a four-part series, but hopefully you'll be inspired to explore the vast and enigmatic world of Muslimgauze for yourself.

“Vinyl”

Hi
Ever considered releasing your compilations on vinyl, or tape?

“Interesting...”

A rather interesting collection of Muslimgauze tracks. It's always nice to see more material of Bryn's available.

“Thanks”

Was always intrigued, but his catalogue is daunting. Thanks for helping me dip my toe in the water.
