Machine Records

Machine Records is an independent record label specialising in electronic music. It was set up in 2001 in Cardiff, Wales and is currently run from Wellington, New Zealand.

In March 2005, it was voted 'Best Label' in the Welsh Music Awards, creating the most visible sign of Cardiff's thriving underground electronic scene. The majority of artists involved with the label are Welsh or have a strong Welsh connection.

Between October 2003 and September 2006, the label ran a monthly night in Cardiff called 'Terminal' featuring live sets from electronic acts. This included artists from the label's roster, as well as guests such as Chris Clark (Warp Records), Cylob (Rephlex), Yellotone (AI Records), Nathan Fake (Border Community), Schneider TM, Dogmixer, Random Number (Highpoint Lowlife), Kansas City Prophets (Seed Records), and others.

The label has had close associations with the Access Tonal Communications collective, High Quality Recordings, Fourier Transform, and Post Office Records, all of which are also Welsh based or Welsh in origin. These labels together define 21st century electronic/experimental music in Wales, which is largely dominated by guitar-based indie-rock and haircut metal as typified by the Manic Street Preachers or Funeral for a Friend.

To date, Machine Records has 40 releases, featuring music by over 20 artists, in its catalogue. Machine Records tracks have had airplay from Huw Stephens, Bethan Elfyn and Rob da Bank on BBC Radio 1, Mixing It on Radio 3, Adam Walton on BBC Radio Wales, and on Resonance FM, The Selector, Radio Active and a host of Internet-based Radio shows.
