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.
