Hands In The Dark Records (Record label)
Hands In The Dark is a French record from Besançon, founded in 2010. Morgan and Onito met at a party, discovered their common love for »unclassified« music and decided to found a record label. They put their idea into action pretty quickly and henceforth in the DIY method they pass music by Lumerians, Death And Vanilla or Co La in great packaging from fancier to fancier. There is nothing else to tell about and more should not be added: »We’re not special at all! So many label records do the same as we do.« That is motivation enough.
