MUTE 4.0 (1978 > TOMORROW)

Mute and specifically the influential independent British label’s founder, Daniel Miller, have never been ones for looking back. The label has always sought ways to celebrate all of its varied artists, but there has never been a focus on just the label, and MUTE 4.0 (1978 > TOMORROW) is not about to change that.

We are thrilled to have Mute with us For Sea Change 2018, featuring showcases from Josh T. Pearson, Chris Carter, Daniel Blumberg, Can’s Damo Suzuki and Lost Under Heaven, with Cosey Fanni Tutti in conversation with Emma Warren.

A special series of reissues on limited edition coloured vinyl are planned for October, and will include “probably the world’s first teenage electronic pop group”, Silicon Teens, and their one and only album ‘Music For Parties’; Mute’s first signing, Fad Gadget – ‘Fireside Favourites’; Josh T. Pearson’s lauded ‘Last Of The Country Gentlemen’, Apparat – ‘The Devil’s Walk’; Vince Clarke and Martin Gore’s project, VCMG – ‘Ssss’ and A Certain Ratio – ‘The Graveyard & The Ballroom’.

Pearson will be released on gold vinyl, Apparat on violet and the rest will be on very limited Mute 4.0 orange vinyl.

The Sea Change Cup

We're delighted to announce that Sea Change 2018 will be launched with the inaugural Sea Change Invitational cricket match. Guest XI teams, featuring authors, musicians, DJ's and other friends of the festival, will be competing for the Sea Change Cup.

Dartington & Totnes Cricket Club play host at the Foxhole ground with a very well stocked bar. Alongside the leather on willow, googlies, ducks and maidens, there will be a Reggae Sound System and live match commentary from Will Burns, Ben Monaghan and our pal Roy Wilkinson.

Free to all, come and help us launch Sea Change III with the perfect summers night pursuit... drinking loads and watching amateurs get over-competitive.

Thursday 23rd August, stumps at 6pm.
Foxhole, Dartington.

The cricket pitch is directly between the new Offshore stage and Dartington's festival campsite.

How Not To Run A Music Magazine: Digital Publication The Quietus Has Just Turned Ten... Somehow.

Music writer and editor Laura Snapes will be in Totnes next weekend for Sea Change and will be speaking to tQ founder/editors Luke Turner and John Doran about a decade at the helm of Europe's largest and best fully independent music and culture website.

A story that involves nervous breakdowns, conquering addictions, contemporary mime, a mixtape for Raoul Moat, a falling out with Metallica, stalkers, cheese, tea, toast and the fine art of not leaving a sinking ship.

In Conversation, Saturday 12:30m at the Barrel Hosue Ballroom.
