Crammed has released over 250 albums and 250 singles by artists from all over the world, ranging from Aksak Maboul to Bel Canto, Carl Craig, DJ Morpheus (& the Freezone series), Eddie Fowlkes, Flat Earth Society, The Gruesome Twosome, The Honeymoon Killers (let's skip some letters) ... to Snooze, Suba, Tek 9 & 4hero, Zap Mama, Hector Zazou and Zuco 103 ...

Crammed's sub-labels have included the Made To Measure composers' series, world music collection Cramworld, electronic music imprints SSR, Language & Selector, and Ziriguiboom, a collection devoted to new Brazilian music. Nowadays, Crammed would like to believe that borders between genres are no longer indispensable, so most releases tend to come out under the simple "Crammed" banner.

Crammed's current roster includes Konono N°1, Cibelle, Koçani Orkestar, Taraf de Haidouks, Bebel Gilberto, Balkan Beat Box, DJ Dolores, Tuxedomoon, Shantel, Kasai Allstars, Think Of One, Mahala Rai Banda, newcomers Lonely Drifter Karen & Allá, and more.


Juana Molina gets award, directs new video...

... and is coming to Europe to play 2 special shows in Paris and Bari

Juana Molina's latest album Wed 21 was ecstatically welcomed by the press around the world (see quotes below). Her native Argentina has not lagged behind, as Wed 21  has just earned the Carlos Gardel Award (the equivalent of a Grammy) for Best Alternative Rock and Pop Album of 2013.

On the video front, Juana has made a giant leap forward by co-directing the eerie and supremely charming "Lo decidí yo" ("The decision was mine", directed with Mario Caporalli). This 3rd video from the Wed 21 sees her performing considerable, ninja-like physical feats (thanks to a chroma key which she set up with lengths of fabric in her back yard).

Juana Molina will also bring her lively, exciting live show to Paris, where she has been invited by the prestigious Fondation Cartier, and to Bari Festival.


From the press on Juana Molina's Wed 21 album

A universal playfulness that’s entirely her own.  (Washington Post)

Her music still perches on the verge of delirium  (NY Times)

It's as if extra-terrestrials have had a bash at making contemporary Earthling pop music but didn't quite nail it. Fascinating, enjoyable and original, (The Independent)

On an evolutionary journey of her own devising…Transportative, like a fantastic fable…like all good storytellers, Molina's gift is in the delivery  (Pitchfork)

This might be her best work yet  (Mixmag)

Eerie, hypnotic, building to increasingly haunting heights (Spin)

Colourful worlds with buzzing electronics swarming around psychedelic rhythms (Uncut)

Always in motion, this effortless fusion of airy melody and playful eccentricity follows a perpetually fluid course (Mojo)

Like other great popular music musicians who toe the avant-garde line—Tom Waits comes to mind, as does Radiohead—there is a vision here (Pop Matters)
