Tom Scholefield is one of electronic music’s finest designers creating sleeves and videos for a who’s who of experimental artists and labels. Saturated neon colours, classic ‘80s sci-fi and early modernist cues are recurrent themes in a vivid aesthetic that’s instantly recognisable, helping to shape the looks of Oneohtrix Point Never, Hudson Mohawke and Kuedo. But while learning his trade, he was booking the likes of Autechre and Squarepusher and running knees deep in a Glaswegian scene home to everyone from Rustie to Optimo, Eclair Fifi and the Numbers crew. As a producer, he’s released three LPs on Planet Mu, the latest of which, “Ways of Seeing”, has been described as a “reimagining of Berlin techno’s origins” and “an album so rich in detail and arrangement that whilst it may not be deemed “concept” it does that thing all great albums do and create its own world for us to inhabit and explore.”. This multi dimensional take on artistic expression also bleeds into a visual world that is both emotional and futuristic.
