The record of the day 



Back in October 2014, the Ruptured music label released its first vinyl record, Issrar, by Lebanese electronic artist radiokvm.

A track from this LP is featured in this month’s Wire Tapper #38 exclusive promotional CD, given away with the August issue of UK magazine The Wire.

As with previous volumes this CD, which has been compiled by Shane Woolman, Andy Tait and Katie Gibbons, is packaged in a heavy-duty card sleeve designed by The Wire‘s art director Ben Weaver, and contains a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks from across the spectrum, of the kind of underground/outsider musics covered in The Wire.

We are proud!


Issrar was also featured by The Wire on NTS Radio:
