Homegrown labels gear up for big 2014 as international stars plot Irish dates...
Belfast's Champion Sound Records have got ’14 all mapped out. First order of business is that elusive producer Unknown is now going by the UNKNWN moniker. He’s also brought talented singer Gemma Dunleavy on board permanently. UNKNWN will play this year’s South By South West in Austin, Texas, and have a label showcase in-store at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade Records this coming March. Head to facebook.com/UNKNWNmusic for more.
Labelmate Ryan Vail had a stellar 2013 and, looking forward, he’s working on an original score for a BBC documentary on people who live nocturnal lives. His experience in clubland will definitely help!
As for releases, Champion Sound has an UNKNWN EP lined up for the end of February, a Ryan Vail EP for the end of March, a debut EP from Dublin band REPLETE for the end of April and a new Ghosts EP due out at the end of May. Phew, lots of good stuff!
