News: MDR launch Label Focus radio series!

It was only a matter of time wasn’t it… Fourteen months & over sixty episodes of Artist Focus later, we’re launching a partner series: Label Focus.  

Like Artist Focus, Label Focus will seek to explore the life and times of labels that have defined the sound of modern music. From the creation of the label, to the development of their sound to the present day, our community and wider friends and family look back at the record labels that have had a notable impact on their life.

The first edition of Label Focus, expertly curated by Kepla, pays tribute to experimental music label Editions Mego and it’s boss Peter Rehberg, who sadly passed away recently. Since the mid-90s, Mego documented the evolution of glitch and computer music, ambient, techno, and nearly everything in between, as well as launching sub labels specialising in further esoteric genres and archive reissues of 20th century electroacoustic composition.

Join us for Label Focus on the first Monday of every month, 13:00 – 14:00, with the inaugural edition kicking off on Monday 6th September! If you’re interested in doing either an artist focus or label focus radio show, please email
