  • {Record Labels}
    • The independent music scene is one of the most fascinating artistic, economic, and cultural phenomena in Polish contemporary art. Independent record labels and the artists associated with them form distinct visions of musical experiments from the bottomup, and for the most part, without institutional support. This dynamically developing marvel is a counterproposal to institutionalized culture and the commercial music market. The {Record Labels} project means to show and spread the creative phenomena and attitudes reflecting the evolution and the state of Poland's independent scene. It is a kind of confrontation between tradition and modernity, presenting a broad spectrum of musical genres, as well as practices and performance techniques.

  • DUNNO

    • A record label as well as a DJ collective run by Lubomir Grzelak (Lutto Lento) and Filip Lech. Together, they try to capture fleeting musical phenomena as well as focus on music that has gone off the beaten track. They are inspired by dancehall, early music, and the indian culture of both Americas. In the discography of DUNNO we find, among others, soundtracks by Wojciech Bąkowski (Telegaz), the non-linear dance music of Piotr Kurk (Heroiny - AHH OHH), and an album dedicated to the work of Andrzej Nowak a forgotten composer of computer music in the1980s.
