Synesthesia: Screen printing the sleeves

We’ve been hard at work in the studio screen printing all 250 of the vinyl sleeves by hand, painstaking but satisfying work. There’s a sneak preview of how they look with a bit of the process in the gallery below:

Synesthesia: Prints for Sale & Launch Photos @ Cafe1001 Brick Lane


The launch at Cafe 1001 last week went better than we could have hoped, thanks to everyone that came down and everyone who made it happen. All the artists were there signing the LTD edition prints, we had tropical fire from Murlo on the wheels and an amazing all analogue live set from Headcleaner. The prints on textured archive paper at A1 size looked incredible, the colours were popping out of the frames. They are still up for a few more days if you would like to go and check them out at Cafe 1001, Brick Lane (opposite Rough Trade East).

We have a couple of each of the limited edition signed, first run A3 prints for sale in our shop HERE

Here’s the gallery:

 

Senseless presents Synesthesia

 

The celebrations for our fifth birthday started properly on Saturday with the epic 2000 person rave, pics and videos from that coming later in the week. All the information about the Synesthesia is here, the launch is this Thursday, Cafe 1001, Brick Lane. 6pm-Late. Very LTD signed Giclee prints will be on sale of each work and this is the only chance to see them before each gets released, so come on down.

 

Summer 2011 marks five years of Senseless Records, five years since the soundsystem culture of Leeds, UK inspired Sarantis to press up his first white label grime EP. In that time we’ve searched the UK and far beyond for international heat reaching out from Warsaw to Caracas. We’ve released almost twenty EPs and two albums of technicolour bass music from an extended family of artists including vocalists like Max Romeo, Warrior Queen, Badness, Foreign Beggars and YT and producers like Jack Sparrow, Starkey, Ghosttown, Phantom, Kanji Kinetic, Brackles, MRK1, Pocz & Pacheko and many more.

 

To celebrate five years we proudly present Synesthesia: five limited edition of 250 vinyl EPs, each with hand screen printed sleeve art from rising UK star Chris Pell. The releases are themed around the five senses and features a high quality art print insert from specially commissioned international artists representing each sense. Every 12″ includes three tracks from a selection made up of existing Senseless artists, some very exciting debut releases and a selection of legendary names who have inspired the label over the years. Confirmed contributors include Poirier, Rossi B & Luca, Oris J, Stereotyp, DJ Eastwood, Distal, Phantom and JTRP but we’ll announce the full line up for each record only as each is released.

 

The series will launch with an exhibition in London in May with all the original artworks on display, very limited signed numbered prints for sale. Music will be an all analogue experimental live performance from Headcleaner who has released on many labels including Aphex Twin’s Rephlex. We will also play all the music from the series with label DJs.

Vesna Parchet

German artist based in London; works vary from paintings, illustrations, sculpture, printmaking and murals. Recent exhibitions in Hong Kong and Tokyo alongside Dface, Swoon, Jeff Soto and Cyclops. Vesna works around the body and an obsession with the human (trans)form is very evident in her pieces. Her blend of realism and abstract, beauty and ugliness is mesmerising.

Overall Series Artist:

Chris Pell

Chris Pell’s instantly striking work is inspired by a collection of disparate influences ranging from alchemy and mysticism to soca and sparse marshlands. Out of these he creates another dimension that we’ve been lucky enough to step in to through his work for the label. Chris has created two pieces for us, the most recent will be screen printed on to all the sleeves of the birthday releases. He’s exhibited in the UK and USA and had illustration commissions for Moshi Moshi Records, bands including Metronomy and Dillinger Escape Plan and recently the global clothing brand ASOS.
