Galdoors began as a family-run business in 1979. The name was re-established in 2013 as a label and the intimate mentality is now carefully maintained. The owners have found common ground between the work of known artists and newcomers, all mutually-minded friends who have come together over the past decade.

The origin of the Galdoors name goes back to the late 70s, to a garage-door fitting company in Gateshead. In 2010, brothers Ian and Neil, the grandsons of the original Galdoors owners, were left a sum of the company money after the passing of their grandparents, and Galdoors Records was born to carry on the family business in their own way. After three subsequent years of planning, the first record was released last April, Audio Werner‘s ‘Balances’ EP.

They had been involved in the music scene in Leeds for a while prior to its conception, as resident DJs at a night called Twaddle. But, it was the legendary Leeds clubnight Back to Basics that got them locked onto house music specifically. Ian emphasises the influence the Back to Basics residents had on him – Buckley, Ralph Lawson, Paul Woolford and Tristan Da Cunha. Now, Ian is based in North London, and Neil in Berlin.

The artists that have been involved so far, and will be for the forseeable future, are friends. They had met Audio Werner through booking him at one of the early Twaddle parties. Ian and Elgato went to school together in Newcastle. Leif, who remixed the title track of Junes’ record, was also met through a booking at Twaddle, and is now a close friend. Junes is Neil. They don’t rule out the possibility of signing new people, but with their own productions and the kind of friends they have making music, it doesn’t seem necessary.

The two releases so far have been a success, perhaps even more so considering the label’s indifference to fanfare. The sleek sounds of Audio Werner on Galdoors001 sold out straight-away, and was repressed. Galdoors002, the ‘Colours’ EP, had comparable success considering it was a debut record, in which, Neil, or Junes, explored broken house with originality and catchy shuffle (see ‘Colours’ and ‘Shamun Dance’).

The next record is by Elgato, two deceptively subtle, minimal house tracks. It follows records on Hessle Audio, and the self-released ‘Dunkel Jam’, that have caused quite a stir in underground circles.

Galdoors is angling towards those tracks that might not stick in the crowds’ heads on the way home, but are thereby appreciated by the DJs, and crucial in building a set. Elgato’s 12″ is the prime example.
