Type Records is a record label specializing in inspiring experimental music from around the world. While we are based in the UK, Type artists are drawn from a worldwide community of musicians, and are variously located in Sweden, Norway, France, North America and England. Type was created by two likeminded UK residents, John Twells (Xela) and Stefan Lewandowski. After a chance meeting in a record shop (where else?) and starting a successful club night together, they decided it was time to take their ideas further. John was already somewhat known for his music recordings, and Stef was very well known for his graphic art and web design -- so what better pairing -- all sides were deftly accounted for. After discussing the possibilities of a label for a few months, and after a lot of careful thought and consideration, Type was born. Type artists include: Svarte Greiner, Grouper, The North Sea, Letters Letters, Skallander, Zelienople, Helios, Aaron Martin & Machinefabriek, Sylvain Chauveau and many more.
