We are excited to announce details of the next AIM Social, the informal night of networking for the independent music community. Taking place at Strongroom Bar in Shoreditch, London on 5th March, our first AIM Social of the year will see Mexican Summer and Mute going head to head on the decks!
AIM Socials are open to AIM Members and the wider music community, including labels, managers, PRs, artists, publishers, those in music tech…everyone! Entry is free but RSVPing HERE is essential.
Mexican Summer is an independent record label serving specialty formats from Brooklyn, New York since 2009. Our mission is to advocate the work of adventurous musicians without the limitations of genre or form. Our reissues label, Anthology explores musical heritage through serialized and standalone archival endeavors and our festival Marfa Myths held in Marfa, Texas has just celebrated its 5th year. Mexican Summer’s alumni includes Best Coast, Real Estate, Kurt Vile, Washed Out and we’re proud to currently release artists such as Ariel Pink, Connan Mockasin, Cate Le Bon, Drugdealer and Allah-Las to name but a few.
Mute was founded by Daniel Miller in 1978, and since then has signed and developed some of the world’s most influential recording artists – including Goldfrapp, Liars, Moby, M83, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Laibach, Yeasayer and Richard Hawley – and become home to a crop of emerging talent and recent signings such as Cold Specks, Polly Scattergood, Big Deal, Beth Jeans Houghton, Josh T. Pearson and Apparat.
Whilst maintaining a firmly eclectic roster, from the earliest days of The Normal, Fad Gadget and DAF through to the techno era with artists such as Plastikman / Richie Hawtin and Speedy J, and to the present day with electronic artists such as Diamond Version and Maps, the label has always been a champion of electronic music.
Mute is also home to the catalogue of a host of seminal artists such as Can and Cabaret Voltaire.
AIM is also hosting a ‘Member Induction‘ session for AIM MEMBERS ONLY before the AIM Social from 16.30 – 18.00 at the same venue. AIM members are invited to join and meet the Membership team along with additional information on the perks they have as AIM members. More info HERE.
