n.o Art Ensemble - Kolosseum (feat. Charlemagne Palestine) / War n.d
n.o. Art Ensemble is a recording and performance collective based in London. Their debut release, Death and Entrances, started as a lockdown project, after which they have organised a series of gigs performing their music. They hosted a 50th anniversary concert commemorating Tony Conrad’s legendary Outside the Dream Syndicate, as well as staging an experimental opera they wrote, boasting a 50-piece orchestra. Their newest record E V ER Y RU N G O N TH I S L AD D E R TO G OD, featuring Charlemagne Palestine (a close collaborator of Conrad), was recorded over the last year in different bedrooms and studios in London and Glasgow and is rooted in exploring the possibilities of drone-based music.
Sarah Meth - Steps EP
STEPS is the 23 year old Londoner’s third EP and features six new tracks that recollect her personal experiences of sexual trauma, albeit painted and portrayed with unexpected splashes of colour, character, and Sarah’s ability to own those experiences through her own strength and power.
Uma - Jai
Uma announces 'Jai'
The debut mixtape is written and produced by Uma and Luke Bower, mixed by Salpa (AKA Luke Bower) releasing on 15th September.
“Jai is a collection of ideas and memories set to sound for my friends to wear on their ears as eclectic jewelry. It is a project full of love, playfulness and the joy of the mundane. Following in the steps of my first and second ep’s introverted nature, Jai is a deeper dive into some of the things that shaped who I am today.”
The mixtape captures the mood of turning nostalgia for the past into nostalgia for the present, weaving early memories with inner-child wisdom and reflections on parental advice. Exploring the parallels found between her itinerant life as a professional artist and the borderless, romantic and creative upbringing that her parents blessed her with, both at Can Obert and across three continents.

SLOW DANCE '19
Slow Dance ‘19 is the London music collective and record label’s fourth annual compilation, featuring tracks from collaborating or admired musicians and producers from the past year. It is the longest and most varied one yet, with 18 tracks by incredible new artists, who are asked to submit a track that they feel wouldn’t fit in a standard release. In previous years, the compilations have provided a platform for artists from bands such as Black Midi, Black Country, New Road, Sorry and Goat Girl to release more experimental solo projects as well as giving an opportunity to completely new, unsigned artists. Throughout the year, Slow Dance put an enormous effort into finding the most interesting and promising new acts and the compilation is an opportunity to highlight and provide a platform for this. It acts as a summary of the label’s highlights from artists and tracks of 2019 and things to watch for 2020 - from both within and outside of the label’s own roster.
