"It was like the culmination of everything we had collectively worked towards, literally a dream come true."
Answered by: Mike Solo — Director
What's the thing you're most proud of your label doing this past year? Helping sleepmakeswaves release Love Of Cartography, which led to them headlining the Metro Theatre in June. It was like the culmination of everything we had collectively worked towards, literally a dream come true.
Any new signings in the past 12 months? Heaps — though we think of it less like signing and more like 'joining the family'. Closure In Moscow, Mono, Troldhaugen, Forstora, Arcane, Klone, Alithia, Grun and hopefully more to announce soon.
What do you put the success of your label down to? The amazing community of musicians creating progressive and innovative music. It is really quite humbling and inspiring to be part of. Hopefully too because I'm somewhat useful at promoting their music — and certainly passionate!
