Notes Here’s what Denovali have to say about themselves:

Denovali Records is a Germany based independent music label founded in 2005. Not confined to a specific genre the label supports worldwide sound researchers. The program of Denovali Records varies from sometimes improvised darker experimental sounds, ambient, drone, indie and electronica to darkjazz, jazz or piano and string driven modern compositions.

Artwork and packaging are considered to be as essential for a release as the music – the combination of both is meant to result in a coherent piece of art.

One of the pleasures of publishing Hard Format is that of discovering music and design I probably otherwise wouldn’t otherwise encounter. I’m always pleased to hear from visitors and that’s how I came across Denovali. Some time after a brief exchange three slabs of vinyl encased in double gatefold sleeves arrived in the post. Persual of Denovali’s website indicates they also release limited editions in multi-coloured vinyl which is worth looking out for. Clearly, these three releases are just the tip of the iceberg…
