For our second merchandise collaboration we team up with Opal Tapes to present a limited edition run of premium organic short / long sleeve t-shirts and sweatshirts adorned with a four-way silk-screen print designed by Berlin-based musician, illustrator and artist Fred Mann.
Operated out of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK by Stephen Bishop, Opal Tapes and sub-labels Black Opal, VANILLA and Zabte Sote, have forged an indisputable reputation for unearthing some of electronic music’s most abstract, experimental and visionary producers of the past decade.
The discography is a who’s who of some our favourite producers including; D.Å.R.F.D.H.S., E-Saggila, Emra Grid, Helm, HOLOVR, Huerco S., IVVVO, J. Albert, Karen Gwyer, Patricia, Perfume Advert, Prostitutes, Russell E. L. Butler, S Olbricht, Shapednoise, Sote, Yves De Mey and many more.
For the occasion, Inverted Audio commissioned Fred Mann to visualise the graphics for Opal Tapes, and we are besotted with the results — suitably fresh and visionary for such a prominent record label, whilst retaining the label’s cultivated gritty and macabre aesthetic.
*Merchandise available to pre-order from Everpress (Ends 31 March).
