Starting off five years ago as a home for a recording of a radio show, backed up with a recording of a dread-filled live jam from Killing Sound [now one of the harder to obtain pieces in the catalogue and one that’s featured on the bonus cassette], NoCorner has morphed from an occasional cassette label to a predictably unpredictable outlet for the strange and essential.

From chopped & screwed dubwise exploration, cyberpunk techno, lo-fi pop anthems and breakbeat research and development, we’ve welcomed it all with open arms.

The label offers a home for those tracks that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end – those jams that are just too good to languish on a hard disc somewhere.

The common denominator in all these releases is a desire to experiment, a will to push boundaries and shun the status quo. From 20-second loop fragments to 20-minute live jams, you’ll find them all on NoCorner.

‘5 Years Of NoCorner Music’ is a celebration of the catalogue to date, taking in some highlights as well as hinting at some forthcoming material and rounding up some exclusive music just for this compilation.

Twenty-nine tracks spanning past, present and future material, paired with a 40-minute bonus tape, it’s vacuum sealed and laced with extras. A fine-tuned revisiting of the catalog for those already in the know, and a warm welcome to NoCorner for new ears.

Edition of 200, C110 cassette & C36 Bonus tape –
vacuum sealed in a stickered silver package, containing NC logo sticker + download code.
