Does anyone know some quality record labels with consistent good artists and tunes?

 

I'm encountering too much wackness these days. Its everywhere.

I checked out R&S. It had a lot of old school 90s acid tracks. Some of them were pretty cool.

 

I'll check out somothaship...what I'm looking for really is some good instrumental music.

 

Maybe to get some nice ideas for production (song structure, buildups, breakdowns, melodies, harmonizations, sound design, basslines).

 

Any other suggestions?

https://ultimae.com/

Ultimae Records for some chilled out ambient stuff. Check out Hybrid Leisureland's album "Scroll Side", and Connect.Ohm's "9980" especially.

 

https://www.kitchen-label.com/artists/

Kitchen Label has some nice piano and guitar stuff. Sonicbrat is very good relaxing music.

 

https://modularfield.io/

Only just found Modularfield Records this evening so I can't say what they're track record in terms of quality but they have Ann Annie who is very good so it may be worth a look

 

https://deathwishinc.com/

And if you're like me and you like a bit of heavy music DeathWishInc are good to. They have Converge and Code Orange. Code Orange's "Dreams in Inertia", "Bleeding In The Blur", and "Mud" are excellent hardcore/sludge rock.

ECM.  Maybe.

 

https://archive.is/NptJv

 

They've started steaming so you have  chance to listen before buying (more or less).

 

I say "maybe" because I've yet to come across a label where I feel I'd like most of what they release, and ECM is no exception.  But I think ECM has at least a consistent mix of bold modern music without being needlessly esoteric.

When I'm feeling like dark techno, industrial, etc., L.I.E.S. certainly delivers. 

 

But also want to point out what TOUCHED MUSIC is doing.

They're basically a charity, and have put out consistently great music since starting.

Probably as far from what you were looking for as it could get, but it's a good label. :P

TOUCHED and LIES are badass, especially Tzusing.

I like most of WEME as well.

 

Can anyone recommend more labels like that?

Nice sound design, much energy...creative rythm.

 

I liked the tunes that were in 5 and 7 but they are too difficult to keep time with for a dancer or a drummer.

 

I'm still listening through all the labels here.

For those who like some serious head nodding, world class boom bap, sampling mastery demonstration, modern jazz musicians doing beat tapes:

https://astrological.bandcamp.com
https://larucherecordings.bandcamp.com
https://solarsoundsystem.bandcamp.com
http://www.bastardjazz.com
http://www.bluenote.com
https://jellyfishrec...gs.bandcamp.com

This initiative by Memorex is something that I find very cool and features beattape producers from round the world. It's a fantastic place to both hangout learn and publish your work..I am new to Beatmaking myself and I am personally doing things step by step my way to make sure I get the technique, theory and history right in parallel to my jazz studies as I dive deeper and deeper into Beatmaking. I suggest any hip hoppers here to partake in this initiative as well. So kool...

The name of this thread was suspiciously close to one

 

GOOD LOOKIN RECORDS

 

 

Need I say anymore?

 

Also Mille Plateaux, I mean that should go without saying

 

 

 

 

 

 

The early works and those 4 Alec Empire albums were phenomenal. Such a good label, my favorite act I found as of late has been Electric Birds. Dudes work is sublime

 

Fax +49-69/450464 is great, Transonic Records if you like Japanese weirdness. And since someone mentioned Datachi his old work leads to two excellent labels. The breakcore label Sublime (home of The Flashbulb, Ventian Snares, Sickboy, Enduser, Gareth Clarke and fellow renoise user Vorpal for a time) as well as Caipirinha Productions which has some really great work from tons of well known artists, see:

 

https://www.discogs....16-Architettura

 

I own all 4 of these albums, they are really neat. Even the Panacea one (aka Squaremeter from above) is really strange if you know him for his hardcore dnb antics these days.

 

Honestly though, make friends with discogs and just label hunt from artists you like who have a lot of work out. You'd be suprised how much new music you can get drowned in.

Any more good artists and indepedent record labels?

What record labels have the renoise artist?

( Legitimate Heavy Instrumentals, no cheesey or lame vocals for the list )

Much DnB, house  and jungle so far...any other modern music style?

( dont spam out the recommendations with cheese from russia or old man music from musty u.k...f**ks sake).

Something outside the mainstream, average...beyond the usual run of the mill.

Dont want the moody old spice, dont want the white wine spritzer dinner party style...no double chin style.

 

looking for something bassy, breakbeats nicely scientifical, breakin the mould, ill wizardry, playful, inventive, underground, non plasticky, something seasoned stoner can appreciate.

Some nice label in here so far.

No simple mans ibiza party style.

Dancepool and Ovum records have some superb line ups from the 90s. Then part of Sony music now these imprints are defunct but the erstwhile catalogue still lives on. Being totally dance music oriented it's a must check out for all of us. They used to also come out with compilations like Dance Pool Vol 1 and 2 and that is how I got to know about them back in school days. Lots of techno and 90s electronic music ..goldmine.
