Matthew Herbert and Goldsmiths to create London-based label
British electronic-music aficionado, Matthew Herbert, is ready to unleash a new music label upon the UK, shacking up with Goldsmiths University. The aim is to release music that's come from the New Cross areas of London, giving the label its name, NX Records.
Matthew Herbert is a busy man, as of late, appointed Creative Director of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (the folks responsible for the wibbly-wobbly goodness that is the Doctor Who theme tune, among other projects), as well as attending to the many side-projects he has developed as an electronic artist.
The label is due to launch on the 9th May, at the Southbank Centre. Until then have a listen to this mixtape posted to the label's SoundCloud page. Seems to be a good fit for Herbert, who will be taking on an advisory role within the label.
