Boredom is the potent cross pollination and sonic reaction of two particular heady strains of Manchester and Amsterdam beats. Taking their name from the book by Alberto Moravia, Boredom are that strange juxtaposition where being surrounded by people can create severe isolation, their mantra “Gotta get up and out and up and out” is a liberating call to arms of defiance to escape all expectations.

Bonding over a shared love of Polish disco, 80s Japanese pop and Paradise Garage mixes, Melodic Records label manager Andy Moss and Delphic’s James Cook unknowingly recorded their debut release over two consecutive weekends, starting in a murky Salford mill basement only surfacing early on the Monday morning to start an eventful roadtrip and ferry ride to Amsterdam, where they finished the recordings on an Overtoom townhouse rooftop. As the sun came up, Boredom was born.

“We’ve been emailing each other tunes we liked for years,” explains Cook. “The common thread was always real musicianship woven into electronic, danceable tunes… that hint of a human being in there making mistakes that computers don’t.”

Joining the party are German House stalwarts Panthera Krause and Sandrow M who offer remixes on the Melodic 12” house bag which includes the original workings ‘Geometry’ and ‘Turn Your Head’.
