Who are you people, anyway?
Black Lantern Music is a netlabel offering DRM-free, high quality mp3s free of charge, and also some paid for releases. As independent musicians, we are beholden to nobody – we make and release exactly the kinds of music we want to hear.
How can I stay up to date with your latest releases?
What do you want from me, exactly?
If you want to support Black Lantern artists, come and see us at one of our live shows, or book us to play in your town. There’s also a donate button on the site – please feel free to pay us whatever you think our music is worth! The best thing you can do for us if you like the cut of our jib is to tell your friends about us – tweet, blog, email and update buttons are on each page of the site. Use them! Spread the word!
Do you want some of my music?
Yes, if it seems to you like it is the kind of thing we would enjoy! We release everything under Creative Commons licenses – so make sure you are OK with that before you send us your tracks.

Introducing SJ Mellia, an Edinburgh-based hip-hop, electro and techno producer with nearly two decades of production experience under his belt. To celebrate some brilliant responses from the FMA faithful to his releases with Black Lantern Music over the past few years, SJ is putting up 3 albums of back catalogue material on the site, exclusively for FMA listeners.
The first one The Predictable Split and I Pointed My Rhinophore Toward, are out now. The last to be uploaded, Neurotic Boy Outsider, will be up in a week's time.. Here's an introduction to the man, his music, and his method. Look out for more exclusive SJ Mellia tracks on the forthcoming compilation BLM100: BLM IS DEAD, the label's landmark 100th release.
Hi SJ. So, how long have you been making music, and under what aliases?
I’ve been making music for about 18 years now under a number of aliases – NBO75 for solo stuff and under the guise of Zucotic for any collaborative projects and bands. Bands I have been involved with... those were The Idiot Savants, Static Movements and MELLIA, the later being myself and my son who was 7 at the time!
