We Play House Recordings is just what the name suggests, a label releasing house music in all its shapes and forms. My house ethics date back to the days where house was just a name for a style of music that was simply there to dance to. There is no such thing as tech house, there is no such thing as deep house, there is simply house music, good or bad. And even that depends on the ear of the beholder.
Reckless is serif text font family with renaissance (old-style) look and with a really raised x-height. It has been designed during internship at London University of Arts. Where I could study sources of serif renaissance fonts on UAL Saint Martins Library and Monotype Library. I also tried add some strict and cold alternates (see alternative “a, g, r, t, y”). That was in same time I fall in love in Paul Renner’s first sketch of Futura (see Hellix font).
Reckless is mainly inspirated by Plantin, Plantin Infant (about 1700 Robert Granjon, 1913 Frank Hinman Pierpont), all versions of Times, Times New Roman (1904 William Starling Burgess, 1931–1974 Stanley Morison, Victor Lardent) and all versions of Caslon (1722 William Calson). Reckless Neue is display version with higher contrast.
