Agus López tells the story behind his ambient label Archives
Tell me the story behind Archives - how did the label get started, what really sparked you into getting the label going?
I'd been producing music for a few years and I had the idea in mind from the beginning. I occasionally would come across people who produced incredible music, but rarely had the opportunity to get a proper release. My intention has always been to make sure the artists were as happy as possible with the result, approving every part of the process, from visuals, to mastering... It is easy to have bad experiences with these kind of things.
The main idea was not to create a platform for my own music, but over time, it ended up being also the most comfortable option. When I decided to release my album 'Essay' on Archives, I thought it would reach a very limited audience, I barely had a few physical releases on the label by then, but the production of the album was very intermittent and by then I had some doubts about the result, even so, it still worked great and reached a considerable audience. Much more than I expected.
