Mikroton, Monotype, Bolt Sale

Squidco Mikroton, Monotype, Bolt 20% Sale

This weekend we're facing to the East, reducing the price of 95 albums from imprints in Poland and Russia by 20% off their regular retail price!

From Poland we have the electroacoustic/experimental label Monotype, presenting a great mix of global artists who are on the cutting edge of creative forms.

Their sublabel, Bolt, presents both historic recordings from the Polish Radio Experimental Studio, and new recordings related to the work of that forward thinking, inventive laboratory of sound and compositions.

From Russia we have the Mikroton label, focused on modern electroacoustic improvisation and sound art, with releases that blur the lines between compositions and improvisation.

These three labels provide an outlet for artists to push the creative envelope further, and all three have some of the most vital and important releases in modern music. Take a good look at these albums, but hurry, because this sale ends Sunday, August 6, 2017 at midnight! *
