Each release feels like something to cherishRecord Collector

Earth Recordings is a North London independent reissue specialist, founded by James Nicholls, who also runs the resurrected and reinvigorated Fire Records. The label is run in conjunction with designer Alex Hornsby and label manager Kyle Lonsdale, all of whom share a vision for unearthing hidden treasures.

“Though the label is only just approaching its third year, the feedback has been heartwarming. In 2016 we were nominated for both Best Small Label and Best Catalogue Release at the AIM Awards; the same year also saw us nominated for Best Artwork at the ArtVinyl awards.

Our real strength lies in our ability to add value to existing catalogue – be that with the innovative packaging that was so well-received with Bert Jansch‘s ‘Avocet’, or with introducing little-known artists to new audiences (most notably, Russian composer Mikael Tariverdiev) – we are constantly looking for ways to reinvigorate the music we feel proud to represent. To do this and remain fiercely autonomous in a world of major labels masquerading as indies is what we’re most proud of; we are a rare breed in that respect.”
