Lara Rix-Martin’s Objects Limited imprint is a new home for artists bridging the experimental and electronic divide.
There are few things more exciting than diving head-first into a new label’s back catalog. So here’s a gift for the curious: a new mix from one of Brighton’s most exciting labels, Objects Limited.
Run by Lara Rix-Martin (pictured), the imprint began back in 2016 and has quickly amassed a roster of refreshingly raw and exploratory recordings from female and non-binary artists working somewhere in between pop, ambient and club sounds.
As part of their “Label of the Month” column, Resident Advisor visited Rix-Martin in Brighton to get insight into the ideas and values behind the label. As Rix-Martin explains, the label has a natural alignment with “the darker stuff, the sadder stuff,” but it’s just as much a foundation for empowerment. “I’ve opened the label up by saying, ‘Well, the focus is that it’s putting women on a platform’,” Rix-Martin says, “That’s already given me a wider range to deal with.”
The feature’s accompanying mix, which you can listen to above, is compiled by Rix-Martin and serves as a perfect primer for what to expect on Objects Limited. Featuring tracks from the label’s artists, alongside experimental works from Laurie Spiegel, Klein and Via App, it’s essential listening for anyone wanting to discover a new palette of sounds.
