R&S Records (Record label)
R&S Records is a Ghent-based Belgium record label for electronic music, founded in 1988 by Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes in 1988. The impressing list of the label includes artists like Aphex Twin, Derrick May, Ken Ishi, CJ Bolland, Kenny Larkin, 69 and Carl Craig. From 2001 to 2006 the label paused and opend thereafter with a re-launch in London, where they included new Talents like James Blake and Radioslave. 2008 R&S Records released a lot of re-mastered classics and remixes of classics, among other by Audion, Prins Thomas and Optimo. But Looking back isn`t what R&S represents, they rather maintain the tradition to look forwards, always in search of new, experimental and avant-garde music.

Tessela
Nancy's Pantry 12"
Tessela has taken on quite a bit with his debut on the Belgian cult label R&S. The good news is: His rough sounds and his dry humor are succeeding yet again.

Lone
Airglow Fires 12"
Lone’s new 12inch is like a distillate from »Emerald Fantasy Tracks« and »Galaxy Garden«: It is the best – because most focused – thing that Lone has released in years.
