Ghostly International, the quintessentially modern dance label out of Michigan, only gets better with time. Born out of the post-motown, post-techno sonic rubble of a crumbling, millenial Detroit (if not in body then at least in spirit - the label calls Ann Arbor home), imbued with an unshakable DIY ethos and wildly prolific in not just music but all areas of design, they’re the archetypal new media company.
They’ve embraced the distribution realities of 21st century music production and foraged ahead with a creative vigor that has cemented their legacy as one of the most dynamic and respected “labels” in existence. I could not be a bigger fan.
In their words:
Ghostly International is a multi-platform cultural curator, a tightly knit aesthetic universe fulfilling the roles of art gallery, design house, clothing designer, technology innovator, music-publishing company—and, yes, record label—in one…
To define Ghostly International would only be to limit it. Always evolving, always incorporating new sounds and new facets to its cultural identity, Ghostly still maintains its bottom line: to bring great art to people with open eyes and open ears.
