no type will soon turn ten, how crazy is that? october 1st, 1998 saw the release of Leonard Nimoy, Anaesthesia & Bedroom Videofeed, at a time when nobody had ever used the word “netlabel”. since then, no type turned out to be one of the pillars of that movement — though a pillar of the discreet kind.
of course, no type’s temporal logic is quite twisted: active one day, passive the next, only to come back more intensely than ever. we had a great active period last year, from april to november 2007. since then, not much happened, mostly because of my other occupations. in the meantime, new demos arrived at the office, the urge to work on the site came back in full force & there we are.
you probably noticed that it’s the occasion to reveal a brand new version of the site. those who have followed us for long know that our site has seen at least ten different designs since its inception, some more fertile than others… this one, i think, should be sticking for a while, first because this site is getting increasingly complex & its development takes a hell of a lot of time. but most of all, i’m quite happy of the way it integrates the new albums as well as it does the old school HTML cover artworks.
another innovation for this new incarnation: radio no type, now sleeker & more powerful than ever. if you click around, you’ll find many, more or less hidden functionalities lurking in there. have fun with it!
a redesign is also a good time to rethink the site throughly. incidentally, i decided to focus solely on the main label collections from now on, removing the “other labels we like”, not that we no longer like them, simply because they’re already well served on their own respective sites & also because i’ve got enough work as it is! so we’re now squaring it down to no type, panospria (which is now officially joining our small family), sine fiction & annexe. of course, we’ll be more than happy if you continue to visit bricolodge & nishi on their own web sites, though note that many tracks from these two labels remain on radio no type.
well, i could go on like this for hours but that’s long enough. we’ll be back soon with new releases! brace yourself & thanks for sticking around…
