Mute is proud to announce the launch of a brand new label, Liberation Technologies.
Following on from Mute’s long tradition of working with innovative artists, Liberation Technologies plans to extend that freedom and vision. Within this remit the label will work with highly distinctive and pioneering electronic musicians, some established, some new. Citing reference from Mute’s original and continuing statement of intent, the label exists to give space to and encourage artists to experiment and challenge themselves, anonymously if they choose.
Liberation Technologies is headed by A&R man Patrick O’Neill, whose list of associates previous to joining Mute include Actress, T++, Moritz Von Oswald, Joy Orbison, Darkstar and Zomby.
As important as the music itself, will be statement design, a commitment to vinyl product and inventive methods of releasing each work.
The first release on the new label will be the ‘Spring EP’ by King Felix, a producer from Ann Arbor, Michigan who lives in Brooklyn and has also released music as Laurel Halo. ‘Spring EP’ is released on download and vinyl 19th March 2012.
Says Mute founder Daniel Miller: “Electronic music is part of Mute’s DNA and history, and this label is the latest expression of that.”
