As the dust finally settles on the tail head of a turbulent and thought provoking year we again look forward to the hopefulness and optimism of a new chapter.
The world of music is as healthy as ever. Throughout 2016 we were amazed and engrossed by the output of a great many labels. Dictating the sonic waves of the last twelve months, they incited euphoria and dance, uniting body and soul.
Here are a few labels we feel you’ll get to know throughout the oncoming year.

In 2014 Lobster Theremin head Jimmy Asquith announced that he would be launching the sub label Mörk.
“I launched it to explore the deep, murkier side of techno. Lobster Theremin doesn’t have as much of a “boom-tssh” track-y vibe to it so this was a way of delving into deeper, loopier ideas. But ones that retained a solid amount of warmth and human emotion.”
The debut release came from nthg. Last year LA producer Grant orchestrated the labels first album after developing a relationship with Lobster Theremin through his own imprint, The Lauren Bacall. Cranks made it into our albums of the year list thanks to its nostalgic and deep 90’s house vibes. We can’t wait to see more of what Mörk have waiting in the pipeline.
