Home Normal is a relatively young and small independent ‘organic-minimal-electronic-folk’ record label with currently 66 releases, based in Nakajuku, Tokyo, Japan and every now and then London. The five-years-old label is curated by Ian Hawgood, co-run with Ben Jones, with design assistance from Jeremy Bible and Christian Roth. However, Home Normal is not just any kind of sound factory. Ian personally takes care of every minuscule detail that might seem invisible to the listeners at first… but once you’ve held a record manufactured in their magical laboratory, you are going to remain faithful to the end. Offthesky, Chihei Hatakeyama, Bvdub, Library Tapes, Celer, Christopher Hipgrave, Federico Durand and Tobias Hellkvist are just a few examples from the roster who managed to slow down this crazy world a little and make it a better place for us.
