"VR" is split collaboration with our friends Romeda Records (UK), featuring 12 exclusive new tracks from both labels artists.
On making the connection with Verses Records it was apparent that Romeda and Verses had many things in common, the ethos behind both labels is very much the same, we both support and bring attention to music that we believe deserves to be heard. Listening to their output I instantly became a fan, the brilliant and high quality music speaks for itself, and I would urge everyone to delve into their discography. I am delighted we have been able to collaborate on this split release and showcase the diversity of our artists.
--Dave, Romeda Records
For us at Verses Records, the idea of releasing music for others came from the desire to serve the community of artists that do not fit the mold of the music "industry" as many know it. We found that this in turn serves our community beyond both the arts and borders. The "VR" release goes back to the old school idea of small, like minded DIY labels doing splits between bands and compilations. What better way to introduce diverse artistry to new listeners? Romeda is a great independent label. Amazing catalogue, artwork and has been incredibly helpful to our own development-- one of the first to lend a hand in our infancy. We are thrilled to have the chance to come together and share this diverse collection of artists and styles from abroad. We hope that music fans enjoy listening to "VR" as much as we enjoy co-releasing it. Community is real.
