New Praxis Web Site to Replace this Blog!

Posted in Praxis News with tags , on March 21, 2012 by datacide

In the summer of 1992, in a squat in North Peckham, just off the Old Kent Road, Praxis was born and at the end of November this year it will be 20 years since the first two records were released, Praxis 1 by Scaremonger, and Praxis 2 by Bourbonese Qualk.

Now, in the spring of 2012 in Berlin we just received the test pressings of Praxis 50 by Electric Kettle (more info + audio will be up soon!) and have many more new projects in the pipeline.

And our new website – under the old URL – is online now and will gradually fill in the blanks about the history and keep you up to date about current and future projects and events!

This means that this blog, set up to temporarily replace the old site until the new one was online, is now obsolete. The more important posts were added to the new site.

Now the bandcamp site has been infected… This will include the online shop shortly and also a redesign of the praxis web site into which this blog will be re-integrated! watch out…

Critical Distribution (Praxis Newsletter 23)

Posted in Praxis History with tags , on February 5, 2012 by datacide

We have always championed a way of self-organisation in manufacturing and distribution of records. This goes back to the very beginning of Praxis as a label. Teaming up with like-minded labels and exchanging records to locally distribute each others productions has been at the core of our idea of a meaningful distribution network, and still is. However the economic realities and the technological developments to put this idea into practice has gone through a number of mutations.
I would like to sum up these developments and show how the ìunderground sceneî, under economic pressure, has eventually contributed to its own current demise, paradoxically, as it may seem, as it was “professionalising” itself. Continue reading
