Cathode Ray Records was formed in 2015 as a vehicle for experimental artists to release their music. With the aim of focussing on instrumental music (although this rule could be broken of course) Cathode Ray Records has quickly got to work signing amazing, and weird artists.
Upcoming releases include:
Barking Sands – Inaction Man
Barking Sands is one of the most exciting improvised experimental guitarists to emerge in the last few years who does everything to cast off the traditions of guitar playing and create a completely unique soundscape. This record is accompanied with a 5 part video to compliment the audio allowing you to have a truly audio-visual experience of improvisation. A popular artist at Jazz festivals thanks to the crowd participation element that Barking Sands introduced into the live shows, “Inaction Man” was released in 2016 and you’ll be able to see Barking Sands on tour in 2017.
NCRFCK have only been signed to Cathode Ray Records for a short time but already we have been handed two completed EPs of some of the most unnerving and creative music you are likely to come across. NCRFCK is all about creating an atmosphere in which your mind is led down a path and you aren’t sure where it will take you. The first EP which will be released shortly istThe Ambient Gabba EP. It represents a departure from traditional gabba and stays clear of this normal techno sounds you hear in gabba. The new wave of gabba has started and NCRFCK is leading the way.
