On December 3 2020, Parenthèses Records turned 10 years with the date marking our first release, « The Vedantic Chapter » by Perth-based sound and visual arts collective Masonik.

12 releases came out in this time-lap (yes, we like to take it slow), all encapsulating the label’s core artistic vision but most of all 12 albums that were true collaborative efforts leading to enduring friendships.

To celebrate the big 10, PR is proud to release two free compilations:

Next of Kin, the third single taken from "Unnatural", the fiercely imaginative collaboration between Patrick Graham & John Sellekaers, translates once again the duo's shared aesthetic to play on timbres and textures. A sparsely populated, sonically inquisitive track with the electronic treatments slightly more upfront creating cavernous resonances that engage the listener into a sonic containment.

At the remix control, we find Leafy Suburbs. His take on Next of Kin isn't one easy to pin down. A syncopated monochromatic disorienting pulse traverses micro sound manipulations that leave the listener with an overall feeling of cosmic weirdness.
