The label in the desert spawns a sister imprint.

UAE-based Bedouin Records has announced the launch of its sister imprint Bastakiya Tapes. The new label will be distributed by Bedouin, and will kick off with the release of a cassette from Dutch musician Machinefabriek.

Machinefabriek’s Halfslaap II Live cassette captures two short live performances of the piece ‘Halfslaap ll’, both recorded on the afternoon of June 25, 2014 at UCK, Utrecht.

Halfslaap II Live will be followed by further tapes from Ekkert (an ambient drone duo from Greece), Nuances (an alias of London producer Manni Dee) and Dutch electroacoustic composer Martijn Comes.

The label also has a number of 12″ vinyl releases in the pipeline. We’ll keep you updated with those as they are announced.
