Lo Recordings are set to release a new compilation album on the 17th of May 2019.
‘Spaciousness’ will be released on CD and limited edition double vinyl and is a stunning collection of music compiled by label founder Jon Tye. Featuring fourteen brand new tracks, the new album is the first volume in a series of releases that seeks to explore the connections, overlaps, roots and the future of music that’s variously referred to as ambient, deep listening, new age and post classical.
“Spaciousness is about nurturing our inner spaces, and enhancing our outside spaces, not by focusing on genres, but opening them out. This is about redefining the past, and co-creating the future”.
This collection of outer-edge explorations brings together sonic pieces such as the glacial drone textures of Abul Mogard, former Coil member Michael J York as one half of Teleplasmiste, Jon Tye and Ulrich Schnauss’ cosmic synthesis of sitar, flute and saxophone, a Seahawks collaboration with Laraaji, and several contributions from the new generation like India Jordan, Blackwater, Yameneko and many more. This is a new and exciting era for the Lo Recordings anthology.

London based Lo Recordings has been in existence for over twenty years and is widely regarded as one of the UK’s most consistently innovative independent labels.
Ran by forward-thinking curators Gavin O’Shea and Jon Tye, their output reaches across and beyond the electronic music spectrum. Aphex Twin, Susumu Yokota, Luke Vibert, Blur, Thurston Moore and Squarepusher are amongst the long list of names that adorn the back catalogue, a rich and diverse ethnographic history that was partly captured by ‘It’s Been Hell: 20 Years of Lo Recordings’ compilation album.
