Underground Community Radio Launches Boxout.fm Recordings Label For Alternative Music

Posted at October 18th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Entertainment, Homegrown Artists, Indie, News

When it launched in April earlier this year, Boxout.fm was envisioned as an online community radio from India that would cater to the growing demand for alternative music in the country. Six months later, the online radio streaming platform  which has listeners in 35 countries and has had 1,742,881 minutes of content played on Mixcloud  is now diversifying into launching a record label, Boxout.fm Recordingsthat will continue with the mission to bring Indias best underground music to the fore.

The online community radio and now record label share a lot more than just a name  the label is founded on the same principles and motivating factors that spurred the co-founders of Boxout.fm into action earlier this year.

Boxout.fm Recordings mission statement is precise  “To build an infrastructure and provide the necessary facilities that will enable Indian artists music to reach a wider cross section of listeners and fans. Its less about selling a marketable product and more about extending support to artists that have little or no support.

We believe that India  as a country, as a scene  has what it takes to be a true force in the global underground music landscape, but were also acutely aware of the work that must be done in order to make that ascent, say Boxout.fm co-founders Delhi-based Sahej Bakshi aka Dualist Inquiry, and music entrepreneur and scene veteran Mohammed Abood aka DJ MoCity.

We realise that a radio without a system to support it wont work so we are doing everything ourselves to create an ecosystem  events, label, merchandise  for the artists around us to make music as a sustainable line of work to dive into, they add.

The first two artists to have releases on Boxout.fm Recordings will be beatsmiths and electronica producers, Lacuna and Profound. The two releases on the label will be made available as digital downloads and limited edition vinyl.

The October 20 launch for Boxout.fm Recordings will be held in Delhi at Auro, and will feature performances by Lacuna, Profound and special appearance by Night Slugs royalty Girl Unit.
