Erased Tapes Records is home to Ólafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, The B.E.F., Peter Broderick, Nils Frahm, Lubomyr Melnyk, Michael Price, Rival Consoles and World's End Girlfriend, amongst others. It was February 5th, 2007 when the record company was first registered and is based in London.
Erased Tapes has become a meeting point and melting pot for innovative and imaginative musicians who knew there had to be somewhere they could call home. As artist Nils Frahm says, the label is ‘a wonderful place for creating music and I couldn't be happier in this family. And it is a family. There’s a great sense of freedom on this label.’ Positioned deliberately outside the fleeting trends that typify contemporary indie music, Erased Tapes has fostered collaboration between its artists, often fusing disparate musical forms and styles, rendering so-called genres like modern classical, post rock and electronica redundant.
Robert Raths, founder of Erased Tapes, explains: 'I've always been most interested in a dialogue between two opposite poles, between traditional and contemporary, between digital and analogue. That cliff between electronic and acoustic, the pop and the classical world. In bringing these worlds together or at least start a conversation in how to utilise the best of both sides and make it into something exciting, something current and something that is of our time. In the beginning people might have found it hard to connect these dots between each of our artists, but throughout the years I think it has become more and more evident where the label is heading. Lots of good things have happened that I never dared to dream of. That’s what keeps it so exciting for me. And with what lies ahead, I daren’t even think where it might lead…’
To recognise our 5th anniversary and to thank YOU all for the continuous support you've given us, we have set up a number of events and releases, beginning with a label night at this year's Great Escape Festival and the release of Erased Tapes Collection IV.
A free compilation of eleven tracks by the label’s current roster, it will be available to everyone who is registered to our brand new website. Log in/Sign up now for this little treat and follow us on Twitter or Facebook to hear about upcoming events.
