About: Record Label

In February 2009, Andrew found a loophole in his contractual constraints and formed the record label, "Skyscraper Music Maker", based in London, England and Manhattan, New York City. The label is manufactured and distributed exclusively by the UK based, Cargo Records. The first release for the label was the promotional compilation CD, "DAMN! The Mixtape Vol. 1", featuring Andrew's work as a producer for Skyscraper Music Maker artists, Bad Brilliance, Aleister X, and Cherie Lily and music by New York producer, DJ B-Roc. The CD was released in the UK on May 25, 2009, and on digital download sites like iTunes and Amazon. The second release on the Skyscraper Music Maker label was Andrew's album of "spontaneous solo piano improvisations", entitled "55 CADILLAC", on September 9, 2009. This was Andrew's first album made "by himself", as he told the UK newspaper, The Guardian. The third release on the label was the debut 12" EP from artist, Aleister X. The EP was called, "Bangers & Beans", and featured four songs written by Aleister X and produced by Andrew W.K. The EP was released on November 10, 2009.
