Spushnik Records




Site Menu

Spushnik is an independent and artist-led record label (if such exists in present days), making music available directly from creators to listeners without artistic intervention. The first releases fall into the chillout and downtempo genres, but Spushnik will experiment with anything that needs to be heard, regardless of categorization and across boundaries.

I started Spushnik to release music deemed 'commercially too risky', music the bigger labels or genre-specific labels wouldn't take on in the current low of music sales. I also wanted a way to get my friends' music heard outside Finland, a need which is greatly helped by the emerging digital download sites like beatport.com.


Mar 4, 2006 Free chillout music from Softys This is a new project which will test the waters of free online releases while providing listeners additional visual pleasure in the form of generative computer art. Animations, that is. Everything can be remixed and shared. Go to the Softys site to get started.

Sep 20, 2004 Aamukaste 5AM pirated before release Immediately after sending out the first ten promos, the new Slusnik Luna album appeared online accompanied by a scanned promo sleeve. You would think the music reviewers would be the first people to support independent music – well, think again.
