UNVEIL LABEL SAMPLER

FEATURING: CATHOLIC ACTION, FUSS, PIXEY AND VIOLET YOUTH
To celebrate the birth of Modern Sky UK – sister company to Modern Sky Beijing – the label will launch with an ultra cool 10” vinyl sampler. This will be the premiere offering that paves the way for slew of ferociously northern signings. The release follows a busy opening to 2017 for the Liverpool-based independent record label that has a growing roster of art-driven artists.
‘The Future Influences The Present Just As Much As The Past’ echoes the previously stated Modern Sky ethos of bringing together artists who are driven and passionate about their art and music and spreading this art to equally as passionate audiences.
The sampler combines the energy of Catholic Action’s ‘Doing Well’, with the ambience of Violet Youth’s ‘Lucid Dreams’, delving into the distorted world of FUSS with ‘Fluff’, finishing off with the effervescent fizz of Pixey’s ‘Hometown’.

Available on Spotify now the four-track release will also have a very limited run of heavyweight 10” vinyl on a range of different coloured sleeves. Linking to their Chinese parent company, Modern Sky Entertainment, the colours are inspired by the colours of the Chinese elements. The script on the front of the sleeve is written in braille and symbolises leading the blind into the light.
David Pichilingi, CEO of Modern Sky UK states ‘the ethos of our label is to bring back a strong sense of love, passion and deeply sarcastic humour into everything we do. From the music through to the typography. In a world of mediocrity we want to be a beacon for the right kind of artists and bands.’
All artists featuring on the Modern Sky label sampler played a very special Modern Sky UK Late Night Label Party at this year’s Liverpool Sound City.
