‘Delivery Room’ est une compilation de 18 titres vendue au prix d’un CD single, dans la grande tradition du label londonienLeaf, défricheur de talents électroniques (au sens très large du terme) depuis 1995. On lui doit notamment les découvertes de Susumu Yokota, Colleen, Murcof, Manitoba Asa-Chang & Junray, Boymerang, 310 ou Faultline entre autres.

Leaf, qui continue son exploration de nouveaux sons et lance dans le même temps un site web (www.theleaflabel.com, designé par l’agence très hi-tech Non-Format), ainsi qu’un bureau New-yorkais, preuve de la vitalité d’un label farouchement indépendant en ces temps d’essoufflement généralisé des vieilles recettes des major-companies. Cette nouvelle compilation démontre la particularité croissante de l’esthétique musicale de Leaf, au carrefour exact d’une production électronique de pointe et d’une instrumentation traditionnelle foisonnante, puisant dans les genres musicaux les plus divers.

A full-length compilation album for the price of a CD single, ‘Delivery Room’ follows on from 2002’s top-selling Lost For Words and the Osmosis sampler from 1999. Having carved a reputation for the esoteric, innovative and rewarding, over the last nine years The Leaf Label has introduced the world to the delights of Susumu Yokota, Manitoba, Asa-Chang & Junray, Murcof, and Colleen among others, and Delivery Room consolidates the enviable reputation of a label willing to take chances on the unusual – and make a worldwide success of them.

The release of the compilation coincides with the long-awaited launch of The Leaf Label’s stunning new website (http://www.theleaflabel.com). Both CD and website follow a 360?, room-based aesthetic and are designed and built by the Non-Format team (who have recently worked on commercials for Orange, and were responsible for The Wire magazine’s recent redesign).
