We're proud to announce our second release for 2018 and the second in our Walled Garden compilation series; six new cuts from a dynamic selection of regional producers quietly flourishing between the cracks of an increasingly complex online musical landscape.
A shade under 30 minutes, the release features artists from Malaysia, Singapore, The Philippines and Indonesia, covering a diverse musical spectrum traversing hazy house, tropical electronica, classical piano through to esoteric ambient.
Walled Garden Vol. 02 will be out May 1st as a free download through Bandcamp, for streaming via the usual suspects and on limited-run cassette tape. Don't sleep.
Botanic Records' presents a new EP from experimental Malaysian drummer Rao. Fully-formed but deliberately unpolished, the release presents itself as a meditation of found sounds, ambient samples and enthralling DIY sonic landscapes.Read More
It's been a busy few weeks with the release of our first compilation in late July and a flurry of activity, emails and late nights in its wake.
In radioland, co-founder Tim dropped into the excellent Wavelength on BFM 89.9 Kuala Lumpur to chat with Othniel Ting about life, the label and the what's next. Further abroad, he contributed a rare guest mix for Mexican radioshow and website MITAMINE LAB on Ibero 90.9: a meditative half-hour of strictly regional (SEA/North Asian) sounds.
Listen back to both features below:
Wavelength, BFM 89.9 Kuala Lumpur (Interview)
