Thanks for everyone who purchased a record!
Stepping into the Neue gallery to see Vasily Kandinsky: From Blaue Reiter to the Bauhaus, 1910-1925, I was taken through an inspirational journey, brining all my ideas of the period and artist to life.
Focusing on Kandinsky and the Bauhaus school, the gallery showed early sketches and his transformation into the impressionistic period of art. It was so beautiful to see Kandinsky capturing music in his art .When looking at his paintings, I could hear a saxophone and a trumpet playing. In Fugue (1914), I distinctively heard jazz and Coltrane. All his art incorporated the free form of music and pushing the art form forward. Some of the paintings resembled a futuristic world in space.
Kandinsky wasn’t just a visual artist- he wanted to capture all forms of art and entertainment while making sure art wasn’t standing still. This is why our label is called The Blue Rider. We want to move music forward through our releases. We want to be able to capture the beauty of what is while moving forward with genre benders, true artists with a deep aesthetic.
Kandinsky resonates with each of artists and reminds us why we do what we do. Whether its Jagwar Ma’s fusion of electronic and psychedelic rock, Kilo Kish new take on rap, paradise ambient sound waves, and now D. D Dumbo’s tribal folk blues, The Blue Rider label is filled and continues to assist the artists we love in creating music of the future while honoring those of the past.
We are excited to be able to share our new release with you today. Castlemaine, Australia resident, D.D Dumbo releases his debut self-titled EP on 11th November 2013, available digitally and as an extremely limited 12” vinyl, only 250 copies available for a very limited time.
