Dais Records, a label started in 2007 by Gibby Miller and Ryan Martin, operating out of both Los Angeles and Brooklyn, has spent the past decade releasing over one hundred releases, including introductory records by respected acts such as Cold Cave, Iceage, King Dude, Youth Code, Drew McDowall and Drab Majesty. To compliment its roster of genre-bending new artists, Dais Records has also curated reissues of previously unreleased and hard-to find rarities by 70’s performance art group COUM Transmissions, ambient minimalist Ragnar Grippe, French avant-garde vocalist Ghedalia Tazartes and industrial legends Hunting Lodge and Maurizio Bianchi.
To celebrate the label’s 10 year history, Dais Records is hosting two special events in Los Angeles and New York City consisting of Dais’ own Drew McDowall performing a “revisited” rendition of COIL‘s legendary drone masterpiece, Time Machines.
To compliment these special evenings, alumni from Dais Records past and present will be performing.
