The Mixtape 20: Full of Nothing

Listen to the mixtape from Full Of Nothing, the independent label based in Karelia

23 April 2015
The new mixtape comes from the independent label Full of Nothing, based in Karelia in the north-west of Russia. The duo behind the label — Anya Kuts and Ivan Zoloto — has already contributed to the mixtape section as the noise band Love Cult: for them, making their own music and releasing other people’s always go hand in hand. The label was created in 2010 and soon gained recognition as part of the international music underground. The label’s medium of choice is cassettes — they are cheap to produce and remain valuable as artefacts. Full of Nothing creates a community with no borders (the label’s main audience is based in the UK, US and Japan), and seeks to showcase Russian underground music abroad and vice versa. For The Calvert Journal they have compiled “a trippy hour-long mix of tracks we have released and some newer tracks by friends we wish we had released” in the label’s main genres: ambient, pop and electronic.
