Over the last ten years, avant-garde record label Erased Tapes has nurtured a diverse roster of global artists whilst remaining genre-defying and truly independent. In this item, VMP explores the back catalogue and the characters behind it.
Featuring interviews, live music extracts and recordings by artists including Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds, Kiasmos, Lubomyr Melnyk, Penguin Cafe, Rival Consoles, Masayoshi Fujita, Peter Broderick, Högni … This is a fully-fledged, whole-hearted celebration of “the heart-string-tugging London label” and their unique music “that floats gently between 20th century composition and ambient music” (Rolling Stone).
