There’s a great deal of interesting aural business sailing our way from Australia, and on one of those laden sonic cargo vessels you’ll find Efficient Space. This is a label that blossomed from the cultish beacon Noise in my head, a radio show that started emitting back in 2005, which since then has hosted what might read like the veritable who’s who list of all things wonky and wonderful. Michael Kucyk is in charge here, plotting a course through different worlds and different speeds; Avant garde pop records smash up against rave monsters that then brush up alongside something we might say is quintessentially balearic. In amongst this plethora we also find weighty curated compilations and relics from the past; Efficient Space seamlessly inserts the past into our present and - once again - we find ourselves spellbound by the symbiosis of art and sound in what they release.

Earliest musical memory?
Cruising around the neighbourhood in the family wagon listening to mum’s Elton John cassettes
Why did you start a record label?
To abandon the music industry and finally do things on my own terms. The label was initiated by a reissue of Braden Schlager’s blissed out backroom house ~ a sentimental record that opened a lot of doors for me
How would you describe the label’s sound?
