2012 is almost over and what a year it has been with an incredible range titles added to the range and with our Artist Series clocking over 100 unique titles we had to end the year with something a bit special, so with incredible pride Loopmasters announce Boxcutter – Cosmic Dub Electronics. Boxcutter AKA Barry Lynn who started his music career as a guitarist has been more than a significant blip on the underground’s radar since his first vinyl release in 2005. Barry, has restlessly explored a smorgasboard of sonics experimenting with the grime and garage-influenced sounds which are now so en vogue, and early recognition came from tastemakers like J da Flex at BBC 1Xtra and Paul Rose (aka Scuba) at Hotflush Recordings, the label on which Boxcutter had his first release, namely Brood / Sunshine.
Moving to Planet Mu in 2006 brought the first in a long line of releases on the label, namely the Tauhid EP, swiftly followed by the sometime vibrant, sometime violent, but always innovative full length, Oneiric. For its experimentation, the album drew acclaim from the likes of Wire magazine and the BBC Reviews team, as well as an increased number of live gigs around the UK and Europe.
