London/Berlin-based record label Erased Tapes celebrates five years of fusing classical and contemporary music. To recognise this milestone, Erased Tapes label founder Robert Raths has set up a number of events and releases for this year. After two sold out label nights at The Great Escape Festival and the AB in Brussels in May, October will see a full Erased Tapes 5th Anniversary Tour, which will bring three of their leading artists – Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory For The Sullen plus special guests – through Europe's capital cities.
'Five Years of Erased Tapes' – an official video trailer has been made to revisit the past five years, opening with Robert's words: 'I always have to be able to look back and think: we did this together.'
Ólafur Arnalds adds: 'I think it's so interesting. In most people's heads classical music is classical music. And pop music, rock music, indie music is here – on the other side. But a lot of people don't realise: it's just instruments.'
Adam Wiltzie of A Winged Victory For The Sullen concluding: 'We're the outcasts. We're the Pariahs. I reckon we're the counter-cultural thread of our existence.'
'Some of the world's most sublime and diverse, electronically tweaked, organic music' – Dazed & Confused
'All different, all unique, all essential and each a gold star for this label to be cherished' – Clash
