Swamp 81 Launches Sub-Label, Plans Monthly Release Schedule
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Loefah's Swamp 81 imprint will launch a new sub-label "committed to releasing the most up-front underground music, monthly." Simply named 81 and announced earlier today via Facebook, the new endeavor plans to issue a release (available both digitally and through limited vinyl runs) each month, beginning with Mickey Pearce's awaited Instructions EP, with releases from Paleman, Chunky, and Zed Bias to follow. The new label venture will also be complimented by a bi-monthly club night of the same name, which is set to launch with a party at the Olso Night Club in Hackney on September 10.
While the tracklists for 81's upcoming efforts have not been shared at this time, the freshly launched sub-label's planned release schedule for the rest of the year can be found below. Furthermore, Swamp81 affiliate Mickey Pearce's 20 Questions session, which landed on our site today, can be read here.
