Labels — Vaagner / Vaknar

Vaagner was established in 2018 and focuses on reissuing cassette based music onto vinyl, while Vaknar, the co-label, was established in the same year and focuses on releasing cassettes by a diverse range of upcoming artists, with a focal point on neo-ambient works.

Originally, the label was born out of an urge to showcase the wealth of marginal cassette scenes that are currently operating globally, many of which are connected by a sense of community and a means to collectively re-approach tangible music in the digital age, which is also at the core of Vaagner and Vaknar.
