Kit Records and friends
London label Kit Records began in 2013 as a fortnightly broadcast of exotic miscellany on London’s NTS Radio, hosted by Richard Greenan. The show soon grew to encompass record releases, live events and a pop-up record store, drawing together an inspirational network of artists, musicians and writers. On June 8, Kit will offer up an audio-visual smorgasbord in MK Gallery’s new Sky Room auditorium, with performances from label stalwarts and friends alike.
Devon Loch is the alias of Kit Records founder Richard Greenan. Blending field recordings with synthesisers and traditional instrumentation, his music hovers between minimal composition and surreal radio broadcast.

Brussels-based musician, photographer and lifeguard Roméo Poirier makes sleek, subaqueous electro-acoustic music. His new album, “Kystwerk”, sees Roméo ruminating on the glory, threat and joy of the North Sea, alongside Norwegian poet Lars Haga Raavand.
Chloe Frieda runs Alien Jams, a much-loved record label and radio show on London’s NTS. Shining a light on early electronic music through to the cutting edge, Chloe’s work conjures a landscape futuristic, otherworldly, often frightening and sometimes downright groovy.
