Some of you might have seen some posts or read some threads the last few days, concerning a former artist on our label, who used the name eyesix at the time.
After three eyesix releases with us, we agreed to end the collaboration in early 2015. He then went on to start Eyesix Records and used new artist names, but mainly, Any Colour You Like.
Recently, it has come to light that a significant part, if not all the music he signed his name to, is in fact the works by various other artists, and were simply lifted from their Soundcloud, Bandcamp pages, etc, and then re-titled.
It's not been confirmed that 100% of the eyesix material we've released has been produced by other artists than eyesix himself, but we think it's safe to assume that this is the case at this point. Either way, we've decided that all 3 eyesix releases in the catalog, no longer will be available on our Bandcamp page, and hopefully anywhere else as well, eventually.
However, for the purpose of possibly identifying more stolen tracks and figure out who actually created/own the music, we've decided keep the albums up for 'streaming only', a bit longer. Anything that can help us in this regard is much welcome and will be appreciated.
We're on the case, in addition to others, directly or inderectly effected by these deceptive and totally unacceptable actions. We'll do our best to make things right with the actual artists, as well as those who supported the releases. And hopefully, we can help prevent this shocking case of plagiarism to continue any further!
There are definitely owls in the Roadhouse tonight, and we're very excited to announce that 'Caustic Noir' by Cinereous Mire is out now!

Over the last couple of years we have witness it slowly taking shape, mutate, grow larger, and it all has culminated this Hallow's Eve; the perfect soundtrack to a horror movie not yet made. We rejoice the timely arrival of "The Green Decay" by Everyday Dust.
Tape effects, analogue synthesisers, organ, vintage keyboards and transformed sounds are brought together to create a moss-covered landscape of strange fiction. Heavily influenced by outings to the darkest, murkiest overgrown corners of the forests that surround his home - and inspired by tales of Lovecraftian horror
The release is also available to pre-order as a limited edition cassette, so be sure to reserve yourself a copy!
