PLAINAUDIO IS DISCONTINUED

After ten years of label history, over twenty artists contributing over thirty releases, we thought it's time to leave the arena.

Founded in 2001 by Manu Harmilapi, the label started with vinyl releases by Cycom and Barth and quickly evolved into Germany's most break-dominant Drum 'n' Bass label. In 2005, Plain relaunched as "Plainaudio", a free netlabel for Drum 'n' Bass, Electronica and Experimental featuring artists like Alpha Omega, Cartridge, Macc, LXC, IJO and Martsman amongst others. Due to various projects, jobs, families and other commitments, we're forced to prioritise otherwise and close down the label for the time being.

We thank all of our long time fans and supporters, all the artists, who contributed to our humble catalogue and all the befriended and associated labels.


We are about to extend our electronic release section with one well crafted and musically stunning opus by UK based producer Matthew Stenning under his UV moniker. Named after its composer, "The UV EP" brings us both, hard rockin. lamb choppin beats and strings from the heart of darkness along with the sweetest cuddlebleepism since zelda and link's harp duet joined forces with the moomin harmonica crew. This is music for the soul!
In the artist's own words: "The UV sound is a very insular one, and unintentionally disrespectful of genre - the point is to simply write what 'needs' to be written at that time, as opposed to curtailing to tempo, style or other restrictive boundaries - the mood could be dark, playful, energetic, organic, or technological - it really doesn't matter. A feeling, or vibe is prioritised, not category".
