Some things have ground to a halt during this pandemic – understandably so – as things we once knew well and took for granted were suddenly thrown askew by a new reality. But one thing that has remained comfortingly constant is the high level of output from Germany’s Pelagic Records. With no indication of slowing down, this positively prolific label is churning out stellar release after stellar release. We’re thrilled to have teamed up with the label to present a showcase of their recent and upcoming releases under the banner ‘Pelagic Presents’ – a collection of premiers, exclusive performances and more.

That this showcase is so vast in scope yet barely scrapes the surface of their roster of artists is testament to the depth of talent that is housed by Pelagic. Not only will we be highlighting the likes of Year of No Light, The Ocean, SOM, CROWN, LLNN and other names you are likely already familiar with, but we’ll also be unveiling a clutch of new signings exclusively during Roadburn Redux. To find out who their latest Pelagic recruits are you’ll need to tune in during the festival weekend when all will be revealed.

The Ocean’s Robin Staps is at the helm of all things Pelagic and he commented:

We are honoured to be invited to present a selection of our artist roster at Roadburn Redux. Roadburn has been one of the most important institutions for us for discovering new music for many years, and we share an abundance of great memories of spring visits of Tilburg. As a matter of fact our first contact with some of the new signings we are going to announce at this year’s edition of Roadburn (Redux) was at a previous edition of Roadburn. We have a lot of respect and admiration for Walter’s vision and artistic scope. To be able to present a rather large selection of the Pelagic roster here is an heartening opportunity in these difficult times for us and for all of the artists involved, an opportunity for which we are very grateful. All video contributions will be new material produced specifically for Roadburn Redux and premiered here and nowhere else.“

Demonstrating that at least one part of the music business is in rude health, join us as we celebrate what Pelagic Records has to offer as we dive into the ‘Pelagic Presents’ series of presentations over the Roadburn weekend.

Pelagic Presents will be a part of Roadburn Redux, between April 16-18.
