PREMIERE - Andrew Tuttle 'Activation'
Inimitable outlier label Room40 had a stellar 2015, celebrating 15 years in the biz with releases and reissues by the likes of Tim Hecker, Norman Westberg and Lawrence English, as well as shows featuring English, Jim O'Rourke, William Basinski and Grouper among many others.

Fantasy League is launched next week - you can pre-order it here. Below is an exclusive stream of aural euphoria 'Activation'. Make me a lifelong member, Tutts. Sonic Masala is proud to be hosting Tuttle at the esteemed Cafe OTO Wednesday April 27, support coming from Chris Rainier and Lisa Busby - get tickets here.
