Projekt Label Sampler 2014

In many ways my life, through music and through this blog, have come full circle. I stumbled across the Projekt label a while ago and have been receiving emails on the status of things in the music world through their lens. Some of the most interesting writings on the subject of labels, music and production and the financial thread that inevitably touches all of it.

The label was founded by black tape for a blue girl (whose Bandcamp page is here) leader Sam Rosenthal in 1983 as a way to release his own solo electronic music. However, it was the sublabels that caught my eye, one in particular: Darkwave. I know the label through TCH's release Sinflower and its association with the Dorobo label which, if you've been here for a while, you know is one of the formative labels in my music trajectory.

I know the name more, however, because he holds a copy of both The Trial: A Musical Reinvention and The Yammouni Files (of which I am actively seeking a physical copy of both). Not sure there's a connection between the two names but there is in my brain. Serendipity, baby.

So there you have it, full circle.

As for the music, take a look at the track list. Steve Roach should be a name familiar to all but definitely take a dive in and discover other artists who are also making some incredible music.

Pay as you wish offering but you know what to do:
