  • Cassette + Digital Album

    ‘Beat Tapestry’ is an exclusive collection of unheard sketches and beats from my harddrive, woven together as a live recording via my MPD.

    Recent single ‘Battered Mars Bar’ features on the beat tape, in amongst slow synthy grooves that work their way up through wonky astral house vibes, and up into funky 140bpm territory.

    A transparent blue cassette with on body print, housed in a transparent red case, giving off a unique purple tint when held against the light. 

    Each purchase of this one-off cassette release comes with an exclusive digital copy of ‘Beat Tapestry’. 

    One side of the cassette is blank (purposely!) and recordable.
    Each purchase comes with a private link to 2 additional 30 minute DJ mixes that can be recorded onto it (or you can record whatever you like on there), welcoming you to partake in a part of the creation of your own unique edition of this beat tape.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Beat Tapestry via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

First Word is pleased to bring you more music from Werkha!

'Beat Tapestry' is a 14-track affair, previously released only on a very limited cassette, and comprised of various beats and bobs from Werkha's harddrive, ranging from slow synthy grooves, to wonky astral house vibes, up to funky 140bpm territory.

This follows recent acclaimed releases for First Word, the 2022 sophomore album 'All Werk Is Play', and 2020 EP 'The Rigour', additionally to a 10 year anniversary version of Werkha's debut 'Cube & Puzzle'.

Werkha recently toured the UK supporting Manchester legends A Certain Ratio, who he's also just provided a remix for, as well as performing live shows recently at Glastonbury, Love Supreme, Kelburn Garden Party, Jazz In The Park, Brick Lane Festival and Dour Festival, to name a few.

In the past, Werkha has toured with artists like Mr Scruff and Bonobo, and previous radio support comes from BBC's Jamz Supernova, Tom Ravenscroft, Afrodeutsche & Huey Morgan, as well as selectors such as DJ Paulette, Scratcha DVA, Zakia Sewell, Harvey Sutherland & Jyoty.
