Pre-order “Tales Of Us”: iTunes: http://smarturl.it/talesofusitunes
Mute is proud to announce the launch of a brand new label, Liberation Technologies. Following on from Mute’s long tradition of working with innovative artists, Liberation Technologies plans to extend that freedom and vision. Within this remit the label will work with highly distinctive and pioneering electronic musicians, some established, some new.
Citing reference from Mute’s original and continuing statement of intent, the label exists to give space to and encourage artists to experiment and challenge themselves, anonymously if they choose.
Liberation Technologies is headed by A & R man Patrick O’Neill, whose list of associates previous to joining Mute include Actress, T++, Moritz Von Oswald, Joy Orbison, Darkstar and Zomby. As important as the music itself, will be statement design, a commitment to vinyl product and inventive methods of releasing each work. There are also plans to branch out into live happenings in 2012.
The first release on the new label will be the ‘Spring EP’ by King Felix, a producer from Ann Arbor, Michigan who lives in Brooklyn and has also released music as Laurel Halo. ‘Spring EP’ is released on download and vinyl on 19 March 2012.
Says Daniel Miller, “Electronic music is part of Mute’s DNA and history, and this label is the latest expression of that.”
Mute was founded by Daniel Miller in 1978, and since then has signed and developed some of the world’s most influential recording artists – including Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Yazoo, Goldfrapp and Erasure – and become home to a crop of emerging talent and recent signings including Apparat and S.C.U.M.
Whilst maintaining a firmly eclectic roster, from the earliest days of The Normal, Fad Gadget and DAF through to the techno era with artists such as Plastikman / Richie Hawtin and Speedy J, and to the present day with hybrid electronic artists such as Yeasayer and Liars.
Mute also looks after a catalogue of seminal artists such as Can and Cabaret Voltaire.

Soundtrack Mini-Album Available January 11th on GaryGo.tv!
CINEMA (Skrillex remix) is one of the greatest works of art ever made. “
2011 was the year that put Gary Go on dance music’s radar. The quirky and introspective pop artist was suddenly thrust to the forefront of the scene upon collaborating with mega-producer and hit maker Benny Benassi, writing and performing the chart-topping dance club anthem “Cinema.” After enjoying a GRAMMY-nominated remix from Skrillex and being front and center in Benassi’s video for “Close to Me”, Gary Go toured the globe as the face and voice of dance music. But that was last year. Now that 2012 is upon us, Gary is stepping into the spotlight on his own with his new album“Now Was Once The Future.”
Listen to the new track “Our Love is on the Line.” (Download HERE)
“Now Was Once The Future” gets released on January 11th and further showcases Gary’s talents as a songwriter, vocalist and producer. The new mini-concept album tells the story of the aftermath of a breakup, chronicling the moment when someone you love leaves you. His first single, a new interpretation of “Cinema”, transforms the dance hall anthem into a spaced out electronic ballad. In conjunction with the announcement of the NWOTFrelease date, Gary is releasing a new single “Our Love is on the Line.” Gary’s spirited and soulful vocals take center stage on the funk and soul-influenced track. It is a pop gem that is as catchy as it is riveting.
NWOTF features a stellar group of musicians including drummer Deantoni Parks(Meshell N’Degeocello / Mars Volta), violinist Davide Rossi (Coldplay / Goldfrapp),Memphis Horns (Elvis Presley / Al Green) and mixer Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros / M83 / Moby). The album was produced by Gary Go at his own The Whipping Club studios and features artwork by world-traveling graphic designer Kaonashi.
