2010 has seen Plus 8 celebrate its 20 year anniversary with releases coming from some of techno’s finest artists, including Paco Osuna, Marco Carola, Skoozbot, Mike Shannon, Danilo Vigorito, Datasoul and Uto Karem. Now London duo Layo & Bushwacka! join the family with the release of their debut for Richie Hawtin and John Aquaviva’s imprint, with the Endangered EP.
Layo & Bushwacka! are one of electronic music’s most esteemed duos. In just over a decade they have released three artist albums, three mix albums, formed their own label - Olmeto - and have held residencies at several internationally renowned clubs, including their monthly ‘All Night Long’ parties at The End in London, which Layo co-owned with Mr C. Since The End’s closure, Layo & Bushwacka! have been putting on bi-monthly ‘Shake it’ warehouse parties around London, inviting guests including Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Magda and Laurent Garnier to play intimate sets that distinctly capture the raw energy of techno in its formative years.
“We both sat down at the early part of the year to talk about making music in 2010 and what we wanted to do - we felt that for four years we had just made music for Olmeto, and that maybe it was time to do something for another label to give us a different focus; a new litmus test. We then said on this basis, it has to be for Plus8/Minus. And several months later, here is our first EP for Plus 8: Endangered.
We called it the Endangered EP as we are against man's relentless pursuit of profit without conscience and its impact on the natural world. Each track represents an endangered animal and each animal represents the flavour of each track. The listening is up-to you.” Layo & Bushwacka!
