Robohands – Shapes

‘Shapes’, the third album from the London-based instrumentalist-composer-producer-extraordinaire, was initially planned to be recorded in full at Buffalo Studios with producer JP Pilon in Limehouse, London. While much of the record, including all of the drumming, was completed there, the COVID-19 pandemic forced Baxter to get creative and flex his talents as an engineer. Baxter, who has become obsessed with gear and the technical side of the creative process, just as much as with being a well-versed composer and musician, was able to finish the remainder of the record at his flat in London.

High Pulp – Mutual Attraction Vol. 1

“I am deeply grateful for how Pharaoh Sanders, Alice Coltrane and Sun Ra, each in their own way, invite the listener to attend to the pure sound (and silence) from which the note emerges, the organic pulse that creates rhythm. The musical wisdom contained in their work is an antidote to rigidity and a cause for endless optimism,” says the group’s saxophonist, Andrew Morrill. Learn more >

A brand-new day. A brand-new experience.

It’s simple, really. I love music. I launched the KU label so I could release the music I want to hear. And while this remains the same, I’ve built a platform for the artists I work with. I’ve created a space where you can learn more about the KU collective, our music and my curation. I hope this new experience conveys our growth from an online-record store to a home for musicians, producers, DJs and you. Learn more >
