club late music

open-source and collaborative music label

2018 - ongoing

Club Late Music (CLM) is an open-source and collaborative music label. Born between Paris and London in 2015, it seeks to explore the ways of producing and promoting musical projects by gathering an enlarged community (GUN) driving all the projects and releases.

Club Late Music attempts to represent an artistic movement stimulated by experimental club music, using photography, videos and new technologies as mediums of experimentation. The so-called URL culture and its capacity to bind musical and visual substrates and practices is constitutive of its artistic approach.

In April 2017, Club Late Music initiated the GUN project - as in Global URL Nation. Inspired by the free and open-source software approach, GUN gathers a diverse community of artists, designers and enthusiasts into an international network based on collaboration, the sharing of knowledge and of creative resources.

Combining the different musical influences and understandings of club music, GUN seeks to question the idea of collective intelligence in the production and diffusion of artistic contents by incorporating the style and ideas of each contributor.

Using various mediums, processes and formats inherited from contemporary cyberculture, it multiplies collaborative, decentralized experiments, from EPs and compilations to audiovisual projects, installations or live acts.
