Wild Planet started out as a duo back in 1991 consisting of Simon J. Hartley and Richie Brook, while with Warp Records. Since then, Hartley is now the sole member. Simon J. Hartley's music is a mix of the finest detroit elements mixed with the harder sounds of Germany. Wild Planet have released an extensive catalogue of material on various labels, up to the present: Warp Records, 430 West, FNAC and Bpitch Control Records, to name but a few. There are also releases on Simon Hartley's own Imprint Wild Planet Records.
