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.



first excerpt off upcoming new 'audio play' album

In this first excerpt off Aksak Maboul’s upcoming audio play “Une aventure de VV (Songspiel)”, the protagonist (played by Véronique Vincent, who is also the lyricist) enters a forest and has a conversation with a talking heron (played by Alig Fodder). She then speaks with a robin (Faustine Hollander), and the voices of the woods comment in the background. Composed by Marc Hollander, solely based on vocals, keyboards and electronics, the track evolves through different sections (while playfully nodding to American minimal music from the ‘70s).   

Une aventure de VV (Songspiel) is the fifth album by the seminal band helmed by Crmmed Discs founder Marc Hollander. It’s  a 63-minute, continuous suite of fifteen pieces.The central thread is an enigmatic philosophical-poetical tale unfolding through monologues, dialogues, spoken and sung by a series of characters. The album weaves strands of electronica, pop, jazz, techno, ambient, improv and more.
