The Independent Label Market will hit East London’s Spitalfields market for a second time next month, this time joined by four new labels Because, Phantasy Sound, Transgressive and Warp.

Speaking about ILM’s last East London stint in December last year, Moshi Moshi boss Stephen Bass told CMU: “This turned out to be the surprise most fun and satisfying event of the year so far. With the atmosphere of the best festival and a real sense of heart and purpose this simple but effective idea seemed to hit the nail on the head when it came to ideas about how the music industry might actually be able to start re-igniting the imaginations of the British buying public again”.

Bella Unoin’s Simon Raymonde added: “The sight of Laurence Bell in his Domino boilersuit, there at 8:30am, also hammering bits of metal together to create the stall, was re-assuring, and the day just got better and better. Love was all around. Special moments were in abundance. People love to buy music when they can see it and touch it like that. No question it should be a regular event”.

The market will take place on 19 May. More information from the ILM Tumblr.
