HARLEM - BROOKLYN - WORLDWIDE

 
 

MODERN IMPERIAL is a record label overseen and curated by art rock veteran/ film composer Nathan Larson, formerly of the band Shudder To Think and others.

 

MODERN IMPERIAL represents: 

  • A genre-free/ no wave/ no category zone at the juncture of high + low art.

  • Challenging, intelligent, forward-thinking music that takes risks.

  • Nasty jams party people can rock to.

  • A sonic space we can only describe as the NU URBAN

FUTURIST NOISE/ HIPHOP/ FUNK/ KLASSICAL/ EXPERIMENTAL/ MAGICKAL GLACIAL SILENCE/ INTERGALACTICK - THE NU URBAN

 

Race is an illusion my dude - gender is fluid - we are a union of stars - art is the mother-tongue

MODERN IMPERIAL is proud to be a member of the FRENCHKISS LABEL GROUP
