About netlabel

Zenapolæ (pronounced "zen-OP'-oh-LEE") is a privately owned and operated underground electronic music label based in the Greater Philadelphia Area of Pennsylvania (USA). The label was founded in 1999 by Zenas Bellace and Erik Smith - two people with a strong sense of D.I.Y. ethics and time-tested devotion to highly experimental electronic music. Erik has since retired from active participation with Zenapolæ. In 2007 Arnd Klotz join with Zenas to take up an active role in maintaining the label and website.

The objective of Zenapolæ is to promote, support, and further experimentation and innovation in the musical arts and to serve as a springboard for artists working along musical lines which are typically very difficult to market commercially. The wide array of musical styles represented here reflects these aims. Zenapolæ artists hail from all over the world and work in many electronic music genres including abstract, dark ambient, down tempo, dub, glitch, illbient, experimental, IDM, microsound, soundscapes, and atmospheric noise.

It's probably the only ideological statement that we'll make. We're not hardcore about it but it's something we believe in and like to promote. We're not against anyone making a living, so we're pretty happy to support artists who chose a different route with their creations.
