Home Pelagic


Pelagic Records will be releasing select bands and artists in the future that deliver quality music and art and share a common vision of tastefulness and style.

The label is closely connected to the Berlin-based international musicians’ collective The Ocean.

Our philosophy is to release few records a year, and to maintain high standards of quality and aesthetics. The label is technically open for artists of any stylistic context, from experimental black-metal to singer-songwriter to aethiopian fusion jazz, as long as they are genuine and challenging, and their art inspiring and moving.

We are big fans of the idea of the album, which is increasingly getting discarded in the age of myspace. Pelagic will be releasing albums, because we believe in the idea that an album can be more, and should be more, than the sum of its tracks.

Materials Submission

Submissions can be made either one of the following ways:

  • Direct download link to a zip file containing high quality MP3s and a biography with foto
  • Snail mail your demo package to the address listed in the “contact” section

“What’s that? Sounds like bees attacking a warthog in a fallout shelter!”

If you do send us submissions you should have an idea of who we are and what we are looking for. DO NOT send us all your crappy first rehearsal room recordings, send us the 2 or 3 best tracks you have. Don’t waste your and our time.

We WILL listen to everything, and will ONLY reply in case we are interested.

Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you.
