A Strangely Isolated Place Holy crap. Take off. Favorite track: Spoilt British Liberals The Result Of Stable Society.

pC Quickly became an artist I avidly listen to. With their dub/ambient take on jungle and breaks, Thugwidow tugs at the heartstrings ever so lightly, strumming sadness and melancholy amidst a sea of the lightest rain of beats. Favorites are "Spoilt British Liberals The Result Of Stable Society", "Me And The Devil", "Now It Makes Me Think Of Death", and "Pristine Heart." All absolutely stellar tracks.

One of the best new releases of 2017, for listener and DJ. Get it as soon as you can. Favorite track: Now It Makes Me Think Of Death (feat. Sangam).

lee on vhs Its like Burial, if Burial's bass-lines and melancholic vocal samples were dressed with drum & bass percussion instead of dubstep. Favorite track: Dead Colony.

emlyn gear I've heard lots of music in 2017 but this album for me outshines most, not that comparisons should be drawn between one artist and another. You can tell this is from the heart. Genius does what it must, talent only does what it can. This is genius.

Ryan Whyte One of my favorite albums from 2017. The passion that shines through is a wonderful thing to experience. Favorite track: Shallow Night (feat. Sangam).

Earlier this year, we were introduced to Manchester-based producer, Alex Harris, AKA Thugwidow, after our label affiliate, Sangam, sent us a massive folder of unreleased Thugwidow demos. We immediately approached them to work together on this project and in the months that followed, the album was refined and crafted from the few initial selected demos we chose, including Sangam joining in to contribute on several tracks himself.

Wild emotion, insanity, restlessness and excitement are all present throughout Thugwidow's stellar debut ‘Dead Colony’, morphing together seamlessly and making each listener fully immersed in it’s deliberately deconstructed drum breaks, sinister atmosphere and time-stretched textures.
