Song Cycle Records

Song Cycle is a London-based independent record label founded in 2015. Specialising in limited edition on vinyl, Song Cycle is run by a team of established professionals with years of experience in both the music industry and the contemporary art world. Song Cycle focuses on electronic, experimental, and avant-garde music and film scores, devoting special attention to the relationships between sound, contemporary art, and cinema.
The label's releases are primarily oriented toward two different, but profoundly connected paths:
– The reissue of modern and contemporary music. This may include exclusive box sets dedicated to a musician or celebrating an important label as well re-pressed books in special formats to support the releases;
– Original projects developed in collaboration with musicians or sound and visual artists who work with sound and/or moving images. The label works closely with artists to realise specific projects in limited edition.
