Mr. Mitch's Gobstopper Records open their 2016 releases with Loom's aptly titled 'European Heartache' EP, set to be delivered in time for Valentine's.

Self proclaiming his sound as "cold war grime", Daniel Timms aka Loom - according to Passion of the Weiss - "looks back to the square wave synths of the Eskimo era, but also the technology that shaped it: hissy cassette tapes, scratched up dub plates, dodgy pirate radio signals and early computer plugins". 'Grade', his debut EP for Gobstopper, was lauded by THUMP, Juno Plus, XLR8R, DJ Mag and The FADER. 'European Heartache' explores deeper into his spacious, romantic take on instrumental grime.

"The core theme in my EP is a struggle with identity. What's my identity when society dictates how I should present myself because of my race, sex, religion, sexual preference. What's my identity, when the borders keep changing, when I've been displaced, fled my country because of war, what's my identity when my sex changes? Do I even know my own identity, or am i just portraying what I think is expected of me?"
- Loom

Gobstopper Records marked their fifth anniversary in 2015. The label has released music by Strict Face, Dark0, Bloom and Mr. Mitch himself.
