Label launch to boost the bass

A big night of music marks the beginning of a new venture for Siem Reap with the launch of The Ten Bells music label as both a platform for new music, and a recording studio.

Billed as a “luxury sound label” using state-of-the-art recording gear and processes, The Ten Bells Music Production aims to capitalise on Siem Reap’s emerging musical scene, which beats a little louder every year.

Sessions will be held once a month at The Ten Bells Bar and Restaurant, with an emphasis on new, never-before-heard tunes from artists living, working or passing through Cambodia. The recordings will be released on CD, DVD and online.

The launch of the label this Saturday will feature performances by DJ Misha (aka Mikhail Rebrov), a Moscow-based sound producer and DJ who mixes jazz flute with electronica, Ian Mendoza, Angkor Strums, Graeme Quirke, Ricardo González and international artist Kevin Sysyn.

The Ten Bells Bar and Restaurant is located at West Alley, on the corner of Sivutha Boulevard. Doors for the event open at 7pm, and performances start at 8pm.
