Mute have started a new electronic music sub-label called Liberation Technologies which will be run by Patrick O’Neill.
The first release is by King Felix, aka Lauren Halo, and will be aimed squarely at the dance-floor. Mute have a bulging back catalogue of esoteric dance music (Fad Gadget to Richie Hawtin basically) and look set to create a very interesting platform for contemporary electronic auteurs to draw on that lineage. Which sounds fucking dope. Check out this neat little interview RA have done with O’Neill for some more details.
