Celebrating a banner year of Spacebomb
In its nearly six years, Spacebomb has asserted itself as having a signature sound. “We are a house band,” we declared in 2010, “a unified crew of arrangers and musicians, artists, scribes, vibe-gardeners and business men who feel it takes a village to produce a record.” That has never been truer than today.
Spacebomb began as a record label assembled under a house band model that would go on to produce and release breakthrough debut albums by founder Matthew E. White and Natalie Prass. The music we made captured the attention of publications like The New Yorker, TIME, Sound On Sound, and The Guardian, which declared, “Spacebomb make albums that sound like a million dollars.”
As the company’s profile grew internationally, so to did the outside demand to work with our talented cast of musicians, arrangers, and producers. People wanted the million-dollar sound.
Spacebomb’s creative output has exploded and in response we launched the Spacebomb Group to oversee the Production work, Record Label activity, Publishing signings and Studio operation. Spacebomb Productions was particularly busy in 2016, lending our production team and house band model to artists and bands from all around the world. A few of those projects can be found below, with even more to be announced in the coming months including Spacebomb Records artist signings. We are immensely proud to have worked on and left our mark on this music.
