I was recently commissioned to write a magazine feature about urban exploration. As part of my brief for the article I was to go on an UrbEx mission with a team of explorers who regularly ignore the fences and barriers which dictate which world we live in and go beyond the Keep Out signs. Our mission took us behind the high walls, razor wire and security cameras and into a forgotten industrial wasteland dominated by a long extinct yet still grandiose factory complex. While walking the cavernous production halls and climbing over the rusting hulks of dead machinery one could imagine this place as a thumping, pumping heart of industry. Even in the silence of its decay, I could almost feel the beat of the factory’s endless rhythmic process. I compiled these tracks with that sadly dormant soundtrack in mind.
