Premature Recordings

Premature Recordings

Premature Recordings is a experimental and art based record label that seeks to undercut the free labour ethos of online music distribution.

We did it!

On 27th Feb 2017 we successfully raised £1,040 of £700 target with 6 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

This target will enable us to provide grants and physical releases to artists and producers we value and help sustain Premature Recordings as a label into the future.

Our goal is to create a platform for producers and artists that work with audio, sound and video that wish to bypass attention economics and think more accutely about the way their work is shared and distributed. 

We are vehemently opposed to free labour, and sharing labour via a platform where work can be redistributed and recontextualised beyond our control.

We are opposed to exposing our practice to bigotry and discrimination, and in forcing our work onto online platforms we are actively participating in a system that allows discriminatory voices both gravitas and democratic value.

Physical distribution through vinyl and tape provides the oppurtunity to give control to the destination of our work.

We are seeking a sum between £700 and £1000 in order to fund a series of small run vinyl pressings for a select number of artists and to establish a distribution platform of our own.
