Label Focus: Editions Mego

Label Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the 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 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.
