Erased tapes a London based record label are known for supporting Classical / Electronic talent such as Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds (One half of Kiasmos). Last month they released Kiasmos’s self titled first album which is full of beautiful piano layers and electronic beats. Well worth a listen.
Your collaboration started back in the year 2009. Why did we have to wait so long for your debut record?
Because we never wanted this to be our job. We wanted this to stay in the way it always has been: two friends are meeting up, having a beer and making some beats. We didn’t really want to plan anything because then you’re not doing it because you want to, you’re doing it because you have to. And this is kind of a sacred haven for us because there is so much going on in our other projects and it’s so busy, there’s always a deadline, it’s always touring, always expectations. To have something where we can make music differently, just hanging out. But then I guess after a few years of we had the feeling to finally get something out.
