Sleep D

PODCAST | 05.12.2019

#6: Sleep D

Sleep D and their label Butter Sessions are one of the main pillars of the current electronic scene in Melbourne.
In contrast to other producers and DJs coming from this beautiful city in Australia, Corey and Maryos didn’t leave town to settle in Europe. From the beginning they built their tight knit network, at first through a forum and later through their label.

They met with editor in-chief Martin at their studio in Carlton to talk about growing up in Frankston and going to underage clubs, forming Sleep D and their label Butter Sessions, the whole DIY approach and of course their new album, Rebel Force.

#6: Cottweiler

Have you ever ditched the scheduled program of a school or university trip and decided to wander off with someone and explore the city by yourselves?
That’s basically how Ben and Matthew, the founders and designers of Cottweiler met.

They were both enrolled in Fashion Design course in Bristol, but it wasn’t until an excursion to the capital of France that they bonded over their similar taste in music and the general feeling of not wanting to follow anyone else’s rules.

A few years later they founded Cottweiler.

In May they met with The Wasted Hour editor-in-chief Martin to talk about that trip to Paris, combining sportswear and tailoring, winning the Woolmark Prize in 2017, the best party stories, and of course about their collection ’The lost art of cruising’ .

Lea Porcelain

PODCAST / FEATURE | 08.05.2019

Lea Porcelain

Some albums come to you at the perfect moment. Last year, just when winter had arrived I was sitting on the train, travelling back to Hamburg after an emotional encounter. Staring out of the window and the already white landscape, Lea Porcelain’s debut album "Hymns to the night" caught me.
Their sound is the result of Markus’ strong and expressive voice and Julien’s beautiful soundscapes.

We met one sunny day at the Funkhaus in Berlin to talk about their first encounter at the Robert Johnson Club, the energy at the night, music in skate videos and of course their new song “I am Ok”.
