Szare were formed during a game of darts at the Royal Oak pub in South Manchester. With the first transmission coming via a Horizontal Ground white label in 2009 under the pseudonym, they have since released music under the Szare moniker through Frozen Border, Idle Hands, Field Records, Project 13, among others. Now operating out of Manchester as the solo project of Andrew Diaczuk — with Jack Coulton retaining a seat on the Security Council as an occasional contributor —  the enigmatic bass-techno hybrid has released some of its most ambitious and definitive works thus far, with the ‘Kodiak’ EP on Mumdance & Logos Different Circles imprint as well as ‘Polity001’ on the newborn Polity label.

Watch this space for more extensive releases to come in 2019.
