Modern Love is a record label based in Manchester, UK. The british label represents an inhouse label of Boomkat.
Boomkat is the online manifestation of Pelicanneck Records (which closed its doors in April 2007) based in Manchester (UK) which was once affiliated with Baked Goods Distribution (now defunct). They currently manufacture and distribute labels such as Hospital Productions, Type, Pan, Digitalis, etc.
Modern Love was founded in 2002 by the staff behind Pelicanneck, the former Manchester record store that would soon morph into the estimable online retailer Boomkat.
Initially acting an outlet for deep, dystopian electro by the likes of Bitstream and iL.EK.TRO, over the past decade its fortunes have become bound up with the ever-evolving artistry of two producers in particular: Miles Whittaker and Andy Stott, who have clocked up numerous releases for the imprint both solo and as part of duo/group projects like Pendle Coven, Demdike Stare and Millie & Andrea.
While their work forms the backbone of the Modern Love catalogue, numerous other producers have helped shape the labelís aesthetic, and contributed to its success: not just local boys like Mark Stewart (Claro Intelecto) and Gary Howell (Pendle Coven, HATE, G.H.) but also Detroitís Echospace, Sweden-via-Chinaís Kaman Leung and Berlinís Move D, to name but three.
The Modern Love story is far from over, but as the imprint prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary, now seems like an appropriate juncture at which to celebrate some of its most memorable and momentous chapters.
Modern Love has three associated imprints: Young Americans, Hate and Daphne.
Modern Love have released records by Claro Intelecto, Move D, Andy Stott, Demdike Stare, Deepchord Presents Echospace, Bitstream, Kaman Leung, Mariel Ito, Pendle Coven, MLZ, Troubleshooter, Ilektro and others.
