Black Planet Records is a Serbian independent alternative DIY (do it yourself) label and FMA curator whose aim is to promote diverse music and forward-thinking artists from Serbia and the Balkans, especially their hometown Niš. The label was formed by Serbian industrial pioneers Figurative Theatre and Crocodile Tears. In their own words:
”We had plenty of our own music, and a lot of interesting people around us who have made interesting music, so we wanted to archive it all in one place. FMA seemed like a great place because it skipped all the mediators. We also have all the releases in higher quality on our bandcamp page (https://blackplanetrecords.bandcamp.com/). We decided that music we release music should be free (under CC licence) as a karmic debt payoff. :)
Our releases gained praises from underground music critics from regional music sites, webzines and Black Planet attracted some of the most eminent alternative artists from the area (Borghesia, Nikola Vranjković, Mizar, Goribor etc.) – even though it is a non-profit organization. We also record video and radio shows, organize concerts, book DJ nights, and produce other cultural events in our hometown.
Each of us has done a lot of research in music and always encountered something really good that was from our area. After a few of our own releases, we came up with the idea that it was time for a compilation that would be a cross section of the music and vibe that we represent and that represents the environment that we live in - and so it was.
