As the dust finally settles on the tail head of a turbulent and thought provoking year we again look forward to the hopefulness and optimism of a new chapter.
The world of music is as healthy as ever. Throughout 2016 we were amazed and engrossed by the output of a great many labels. Dictating the sonic waves of the last twelve months, they incited euphoria and dance, uniting body and soul.
Here are a few labels we feel you’ll get to know throughout the oncoming year.

Chapter 24 Records
Sam Pauli, Marcus Blacker and Paul Nolan founded the London label Chapter 24 Records in October 2014. Since its humble birth the romantic techno gang have went on to add page after page to their creative novels of sound.
“We bring you music that tells stories: stories in sound. The tales we spin invite you to get lost in the narrative, to step into another world…re-emerging from reveries with new insights and altered perspectives.”
The label had a remarkable year, clocking up releases from Patlac and most recently Masaya. Chapter 24 represents a unity of the arts, and this is symbolised through the including of them in Fiction-NYC’s best artwork compilation of 2016, a nod to their illustrative talents.
