Default Best Record Labels

Kind of surprised that we don't have a thread for this yet. Title says it all: what are your favourite record labels? Doesn't have to be an explicit record label, labels who only put out digital releases are fine too. I'll even allow it if you want to share some awesome music curation Youtube channels. Post em if you got em.

Sublime Frequencies is a favourite of mine. Founded by Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls and Hisham Mayet, the label explores new and traditional sounds with a heavy bent toward Southeastern Asian, African, and Middle Eastern music. They just have too much awesome music to explore.



A newer one from Poland, Instant Classic, lives up to its name with some really great post-rock/prog/psychedelic releases. Favourite artists: Merkabah, Alameda 5, Innercity Ensemble, Stara Rzeka.

Astralwerks has put out a ton of classic electronic albums. Metal Blade was great back in the 80's and 90's, but they've really gone to **** these days.

If you're including youtube channels, Thebestdream I had is an excellent channel that posts a ton of obscure 60's and 70's bands. Discovered many great heavy psych/metal bands from there: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQh...5BemCTp5nv8CwA

If you're interested in improvised music and weird rock/prog those are for you.
There's also one Hip-Hop label hidden in there.

Late high school early college years in my life SST records meant so much to me

Amphetamine Reptile has some great noise releases. ECM has some really interesting jazz.
