London based experimental publisher Split Music has rapidly gained a unique reputation for its expertise in placing music in audiovisual projects, from Hollywood movie trailers like Blade Runner 2049, The Dark Tower & Mother to brand films for globally recognized designers Adidas, Dior & Puma. This reputation was affirmed this year upon winning the prestigious Golden Trailer Award in L.A. (for the use of These Hidden Hands’ music in the brutal RAW Worldwide trailer). Now, from their headquarters at London’s live music epicentre Village Underground, they have launched their latest project: the Research label. This new label will showcase the artists they represent by challenging them to push the boundaries of their production process to new levels.

As the world we live in begins to resemble more and more the classic repertoire of films and books from dystopian science fiction, it demands a soundtrack that does justice to this new climate of heightened anticipation, fear, and occasional ecstasy. Times of unprecedented rapid change at the human scale call for new levels of sonic intensity as well as for more clear-minded forms of expressiveness in order to navigate through the apparent chaos: this is where Research comes in. With its introductory compilation LP Spheres, Research has assembled an elite group of artists specializing in rhythmic experimentalism and psycho-acoustic investigation. The LP focuses on music that is capable of transporting beat-driven music beyond the social environment of the club, using it as a mechanism for increased self-inquiry and communication between both hemispheres of the brain.
