Viennese label Editions Mego starts off 2011 announcing the arrival of Spectrum Spools, a new record label under its wings. The Spectrum Spools people are in charge of the artistic direction of the firm, focussed on the release of electronic music of yesterday, today and always, but leaving the manufacturing and distribution in the more capable hands of Mego.
The label’s first two releases focus on the new North American underground dedicated to the recovery of the cosmic synthetic legacy, in line with Editions Mego’s recent past which has been responsible for the release of the latest works by Emeralds and Oneohtrix Point Never. Spectrum Spools will kick-start their catalogue early in the spring with the release of “A Sort Of Radiance” on vinyl –in a limited edition of 500 copies– a record by Matthew Mullane under his Fabric moniker. Around the same time and as a second release, Spectrum Spools will reissue, also on vinyl, the recent effort by Chris Madak as Bee Mask, “Canzoni dal Laboratorio del Silenzio Cosmico”, released last year on cassette on Gift Tapes. Both albums will be released officially on 4th April. If you want to hear the albums early March, you can pre-order the album at the Editions Mego online store.
