Dancing Turtle Records promotes and produces music from emerging artists around the world. Our commitment to unearthing new styles and sub-genres of music, as well as broadening the audience of more familiar sounds, has created a vibrant base for musicians to showcase their music. With an ever growing roster of acts incorporating musical styles from leftfield electronica to indie-folk, world, trip hop, dubstep, downtempo and soul, the label has become a melting pot of musical eclecticism. It's all about music without prejudice. Acts on our roster come from as far afield as Japan, West Papua, and Brazil, as well as the freshest new talent in Europe.
Dancing Turtle is also concerned with the social benefits that music can bring, regularly organising consciousness raising music events for a variety of pressure groups and charities, channeling the power of music to help stimulate positive social change. This is also reflected in some of our releases too, like the Merdeka compilation CD, with acts from over 17 countries coming together to raise funds and awareness for the oppressed people of West Papua.
Keep your eyes and ears peeled for the recently released debut album from hotly tipped indie-folk act Amycanbe. We guarantee you haven't heard music quite as sweet and seductive as theirs before! Also just out on the label are EP releases from Inkliing and Daisuke Tanabe and the debut album from the Lani Singers.
