Great Cottage Workshop
Listen and Buy
PLACENTA – An inspiring piece of Techno. The compulsory phat rolling bassline intertwined with intricate melodies create an immense sense of atmosphere but with enough oommf to deliver at ‘peaked’ moments
SAUCERFUL – Crazily deep venture. Envelops you immediately on first listen, but with enough detail to make you want to hear it again. It has the strength to take the right dancefloor, at the right time to the further reaches. Reminiscent of the electronic sound that you first fell in love with!
A Powerful release, we are proud to have Shane on board.
How Shane arrived at Greta Cottage Workshop
A lesson in how you should always have an open mind, especially when introduced to new people and music. This E.P almost never happened due to self-imposed rules. We are so glad it did!
This is a little different to how Greta normally works. Up to this point, all Greta Artists have been long time friends of mine.
Rennie Foster dropped me a mail and said could I do him a favour and consider a good friend of his for the label. Immediately I said No, as I wanted the label to be true to its concept. However, after thinking it over, and chatting it out with Jamie ‘winkle’ Slater (A Greta DJ/ A&R type bod) we decided to go for it. After all, anyone that Rennie is prepared to go to bat for like that is a friend of mine! As it turned out Shane is a totally sound bloke, and we got him to do a Swayzak remix for us at the same time! (Coming soon on 240volts) so there you go. – Matt
Greta Cottage Workshop has been a long time coming.
“Only” Matt Densham has been tweaking about behind the scenes of plenty labels and projects for many moons. He was once old enough to know better, he is now too old to change!
Swayzak Recordings, Peng Records, Post Office Records, 240 Volts & Cadence have all had a helping hand or two. (Currently Label Manager @ 240volts, Swayzak Recordings & Serieculture, as well as Greta Cottage)
He is also pretty handy at Mastering, most infamously being behind the remastering of Swayzak : Snowboarding in Argentina
