ERASED TAPES RECORDSErased Tapes Records is a London based independent record label focusing on releasing avant-garde music which is widely regarded as very diverse in genres and styles. The record company was established by German-born Robert Raths in early 2007 and is currently managed by Raths and Sofia Ilyas.
Its roster of contemporary classical music composers includes Ólafur Arnalds from Iceland, German composer Nils Frahm, Ukrainian continuous music pioneer Lubomyr Melnyk, American multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick, A Winged Victory For The Sullen - the collaborative project of Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie and Dustin O'Halloran, singer songwriter Douglas Dare, English film composer Michael Price and electronic artist Rival Consoles amongst others.
Erased Tapes has become a meeting point and melting pot for innovative and imaginative musicians who knew there had to be somewhere they could call home. As artist Nils Frahm says, the label is ‘a wonderful place for creating music and I couldn't be happier in this family. And it is a family. There’s a great sense of freedom on this label.’
