Muzak

The Muzak project is an on-going series of mixes created by a group of international friends of ours. All contributors have been asked to make a selection of tunes to be distributed on this site. We aim to bring music of great variety and to upload a new mix at least every month. Enjoy
It is with great pride and honour that we present Muzak 34 from Demdike Stare. Demdike Stare is the moniker of Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty both hailing from Manchester. Having released a number of albums and Ep's since 2010 on the iconic British label Modern Love, Demdike Stare are celebrated for their experimental music, focused on and inspired by such subjects as the Occult, Musicology and the darker sides of life.

Operating and releasing under the names Pendle Coven, MLZ and Suum Cuique, Miles Whittaker is also part of HATE (together with Gary Howell and Andy Stott) and Millie & Andrea (together with fellow Manchester wizard Andy Stott). The vinyl collector and human music encyclopaedia Sean Canty is also a busy man working for the Finders Keepers label, that releases ancient and lost recordings, besides his involvement in NeoTantrik (together with Andy Votel, and Suzanne Ciani), and Slant Azymuth (with Andy Votel and Miles Whitaker).

The mixes from the Manchester duo are in high demand and extremely sought-after due to the tremendous research Demdike Stare put into compiling them. Often containing forgotten music brought back to light, Miles and Sean's comprehensive musical knowledge is evident in their contribution to the Muzak series that truly is one we have been looking forward to present.
