Jens Kuhn's approach to music can be described as agreeably Miesian: less is nearly always more. His discography stretches back over 13 years, yet his output is pleasingly sporadic. His choice of labels throughout those years - David Moufgang's Source Recordings, Playhouse, Out To Lunch - reflects his recorded output too: he's studied the classics, but filters them through his left-of-centre lens.
He began the Workshop label in late 2006. Like-minded artists like Even Tuell, Kassem Mosse and Move D found a home there, and it quickly became a go-to destination for anyone looking for something a bit different. The label's minimal aesthetic - hand-stamped logos on white labels - has been done before, but it certainly pre-empted the recent vogue for faux-anonymity.
Workshop has just released a project from Reagenz (Jonah Sharp and David Moufgang), reviving some tracks the pair recorded in Sharp's San Francisco base in 1994, and pairing them with new works.
