So I'm part of a collective/netlabel called Pumpquat Industries and it seemed like a good idea to write something about it here..
Pumpquat came about when a few of us who had been meeting up and jamming together switched to making tracks by sending files back and forth online at the start of the pandemic. Some of us make visual stuff as well as music, so we thought it would be clever to pool our abilities. We also thought that there's strength in numbers when it comes to doing promo.
So far we've put out seven new releases and "reissued" two albums (ie. added them to streaming platforms where they were only on Bandcamp before).
The new releases:
DJ James Naughty - On the question of motes... (2022)
Single inspired by what I can remember of my intentions and emotions when I first started making tunes.
LayQuiet - means EP (2022)
DJ James Naughty - Friend Concept EP (2021)
