We are excited to welcome a new presence on the scene, a group of friends and artists who have started a Montreal-based label by the name of Banko Gotiti Records.
They are named after a small co-op weigh station in Southern Ethiopia where farmers bring their crop for processing and distribution. The label was founded on the same idea: exporting the output of a fertile community to a global audience.
After much preparation, the fellows at Banko Gotiti are excited to share four records with the world, which are ready for release this fall in partnership with us, Summer Cool Distribution. All four physical releases will be available via our webstore and we look forward to working with them and help building this community!
Listen to some Banko singles:
NONI WO – ‘solarstorm’ from U S B E P
VESUVIO SOLO – ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ from Favours
THE GROUP SOUND – ‘COLD WORLD’ from Romantic Notions
PAT JORDACHE – ‘O.M.O’
