BelÃ¤ten has been up and running since February of 2012. Iâ€™ve done many micro-labels in the past, and after a three-year break I had the urge again. The word belÃ¤ten is an archaic swedish word meaning effigies. Cassettes (and records) are the imperfect representation of the true divine spark of creativity.
Tu es un musicien. Peux-tu nous expliquer le lien entre ton label et ta musique ? You’re a musician. Can you explain to us the link between your label and your music?
Iâ€™ve always been attracted to labels that are more than simply an outlet for other peopleâ€™s vision. Obviously what the artists bring to the table is of great importance, but there should be something of the label in there as well. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m aspiring to the greatness of Crass, GalakthorrÃ¶, Factory, Broken Flag, to name but a few. Careful curation, unified packaging, and a conceptual foundation are they keys to achieve this.
All BelÃ¤ten artist share a certain ineffable darkness, but it manifests in many different ways. I have no interest in becoming a minimal wave label, or a drone label, or an industral label. I am interested in the spaces in-between, and I want to make absolutely sure that no-one ever feels comfortable guessing the next move. Confusion is essential.
Lately Iâ€™ve been listening a lot to occult metal and indiepop, but these things move in cycles. I am too restless to stay in one genre, which should be evident from the music I publish.
Pourquoi ne choisis-tu que le format cassette ? Why are you only choosing the cassette format?
Itâ€™s a cheap and easy format to get started with, but the main benefit, as I see it, is its transient quality. Itâ€™s a format that degrades, and each copy will have itâ€™s own flaws making each instance unique. I fully intend to branch out onto other formats too in the future.
We just released three cassettes by All Your Sisters, Michael Idehall, Ashburn County. There will be a very limited edition of a cassette by Den Arkaiska RÃ¶sten late summer, after which I will put all focus on the wonderful debut LP by Veil of Light that will be available in Late august/september or there about.
Temple of BelÃ¤ten is a little over an hourâ€™s worth of occult dance grooves, jerking tape loop dance hall, marching music for the swine generation and anything (un)imaginable in-between, culled from the 31 installments of BelÃ¤ten thus far. Post-Avantgarde Pop!
