Lo Recordings, a label that for over 25 years have been carefully curating music across the spectrum, will present a special night of live music and DJs to launch their forthcoming ‘Spaciousness 2’ compilation at The House of St Barnabas in Soho on Thursday the 26th of August 2021.
The event will see the esteemed London independent imprint bring to life their compilations series called ‘Spaciousness’, a loosely based retake on ambient and neo classical under the banner of ‘Music Without Frontiers’, with performances from Private Agenda, Lauren Doss, Ocean Moon Group and JQ together with DJ sets from the likes of Jon Tye, Rolo McGinty (The Woodentops), Horton Jupiter, Pete Fowler and Ian Sargeant.
Following their inclusion at the recent Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers exhibition, Lo Recordings will also be exclusively be exhibiting for The House of St Barnabas a selection of album covers, designed by award winning Non Format.
Label owners Jon Tye and Gavin O’Shea have witnessed the ebb and flow of an art form in constant mutation. With over 200 releases on their label Lo Recordings together with award winning Norwegian/US based design team Non-Format tell an unfolding story of alternative music since the mid-90s.
Their output reaches across and beyond the electronic music world to include jazz, rock and avant-garde. Aphex Twin, Grimes, Susumu Yokota, Luke Vibert, David Toop, Fischerspooner, Blur, Ed Macfarlane, Thurston Moore and Squarepusher are amongst the long list of names that adorn their back catalogue.
‘Spaciousness 2’ has been compiled by label founder Jon Tye and is the second volume in a series of compilations ‘that seek to explore the connections, the overlaps, the roots and the future of a music variously referred to as ambient, deep listening, new age, fourth world and post classical’.
