Podcast 102: Labels We Love: Wireblock Records

For the final installment of our Labels We Love podcast series, we head to Glasgow, Scotland. The city has a reputation for gloomy weather, but you'd never know it from the crunked-up glitch rave turned out by the Wireblock Records gang. The label, which we recently profiled in greater detail, is home to artists like Rustie and Hudson Mohawke and is headed up by brothers Neil (a.k.a. Nelson) and Calum (a.k.a. Spencer) Morton, along with Dress2Sweat's Jack Revill. Here, the Morton brothers have teamed up to put together a genre-hopping, bass-heavy mix that's simply bursting with tunes, including plenty of unreleased goodies. Keen-eyed trainspotters might also notice that a few of the new tracks are credited to Numbers, the long-running club night spearheaded by the Wireblock gang in conjunction with a number of Glasgow's finest party starters.
