Bump Foot is a non-profit Netlabel based in Japan. Created in 2005 by Tatsu, there are two branches of the label. Bump which releases House and Techno while Foot concentrates on Ambient, IDM and Electro. The artists roster has contributors from every corner of the planet, making it even more exciting to explore the wealth of releases on this Netlabel.
Tatsu is obviously doing an excellent job of filtering demo submissions, judging from the release count of over 300 albums & singles. Surely he’s inundated with incoming material! With such a busy and extensive release schedule you’ll spend hours exploring the site. I’ve noted Samwell’s ambient dubby techno soundscapes on the bump side and Julien Mier’s wonderful acoustic post rock IDM excursions on the foot side. With such high quality releases it leaves me no choice but to download the entire catalogue. I’m not sure how Tatsu manages to fit in time to release his own music but he’s doing an amazing job. Enjoy acquainting yourself with this diverse and high calibre Netlabel.
