Slowly, while the label has been releasing music I have been gathering like minded labels and artists for the Twice Removed store which is over at www.twiceremoved.storenvy.com. There are some additions coming in the post, but for now here are some of the artists and labels stocked.
Dronarivm are the Russian label run by Dmitry Taldykin and curated by Bartosz Dziadosz (aka Pleq) and they have been assembling a great roster with artists including Fescal, Listening Mirror, Celer, Creation VI, Philippe Lamy and the Aquarius compilation (which features the likes of Federico Durand / The Green Kingdom / Pjusk / Melodium (offthesky drone mix) / Simon Whetham / Loscil / Marsen Jules / Fabio Orsi / Pillowdiver / Machinefabriek / Hakobune + Hiroki Sasajima / Francisco López / Pleq + Mathieu Ruhlmann / Yann Novak) to name a few. The store has the releases from Fescal, Celer, Philippe Lamy, Darren Harper and the "Aquarius" compilation.
Preserved Sound are the Polish label that introduced me to Endless Melancholy and Vitaly Beskrovny who also appeared on Twice Removed. They also have links to the Resonating Wood label and the artists Lights Dim and New Century Classics. The store has the two great Vitaly Beskrovny album's "Opus" and "Life on Paper" as well as the Post Rock stylings of Blackpaperplanes and the loop orientated Visionary Hours.
Slow Flow Records is run by Ryo Nakata aka Ryonkt who gave Twice Removed it's second (and first International) release. The catlalogue includes releases from well known artists in the Ambient/Drone/Experimental fields like Celer, Fabio Orsi, Richard Ginns and Concern, all of which are available in the store. All are in slick thin line card sleeves.
Adeptsound is the former Perth based and now UK based label that release music that fits in the Post Industrial, Power Electronics and Dark Ambient. Release come from Schuster (label owner Tim Bayes), Zilverhill (a collaboration of Tim Bayes and Paul Carr aka pRESENT dAY bUNA) and the worldwide compilation "Bacterium" (which features Cheap Machines, Schuster, Dieter Muh, N. Strahl, D.D.A.A. and others). Some of these releases have been long sold out at source and limited to some 50 copies, most no more than 200 copies.
Databloem Other than being a great distributor and stockist of music from around the world (Twice Removed included), they also have a catalogue of great names as well and some of these are stocked in the store including Offthesky, Beta Two Agonist, Sgnl_Fltr, Krzysztof Orluk and Saul Stokes. Databloem release are known for their texture, ambience as well as melody and occasional groove/rhythm.
Dead Pilot I managed to grab some copies of the Jannick Schou and Expo70 releases at the end of this sorely missed UK label. Expo70 is the well known Psych/Drone artist while Jannick Schou's music covers modern classical, drone, ambient and sound art.
I also have some spare copies of things that have either been purchased additionally by accident or have received at some point. These include release by Ian Hawgood, Haruki and micromelancolie` & Sindre Bjerga.
Coming soon to the store are copies of the second physical release on the Hidden Vibes label from A Model Kit "Roads For", releases from Japan's Pollen Rec label from Ieva, Nobuto Suda & Samuel Andre`, Ieva & Hakobune and Andrew Couzens. Also coming in the future will be copies of the Claro de Luna release 'La Voz Quebrada' (Claro de Luna features Jose Acuña who also is a member of EUS and Ett Abigail). I am always looking for new labels and artists to stock so please get in contact if your are interested in being stocked.
