Three Editions Mego Labels To Continue Following Peter Rehberg’s Death

Source: The Quietus.

An announcement shared today (September 3) by INA-GRM, the Parisian electro-acoustic research institute with whom Rehberg often collaborated, has revealed that Stephen O’Malley’s Ideologic Organ imprint, as well as the Recollection GRM and Portraits GRM sub-labels, will continue to release music. The main Editions Mego label has, however, been concluded following Rehberg’s passing.

The French label Shelter Press, run by Bartolomé Sanson & Félicia Atkinson, will now carry the releases from these three labels going forward.

Slam Productions Going Dormant After 32 Years

Source: Slam Productions. This long-time label will no longer put out new music on CD soon but plans on keeping its catalog available for some time. It is not 100% clear that the label will not provide digital releases in the future but the tone suggests the negative.

After September this year there are no more CD releases scheduled for SLAM. Previous releases will continue to be available as detailed in the catalogue pages. Thank you to all our artists and supporters over the past 32 years … please keep in touch.
