Loren has some amazing stuff coming soon... Projekt is doing a vinyl release of his first album... and Loren and Mark Seelig have an utterly jaw dropping fantastic collaboration (I believe this is also on Projekt) - seriously - if it doesn't make 'best of 2014' lists I'll be shocked.

I'm very excited Loren wants to release a live concert of his with us on rM.   

Arbee and Specta Ciera are releasing an ep with us.  Both of them have excellent work in various styles.

Also - Andrew Lahiff has taken a break from recording for a while - and he'll be back with a wonderful album I've listened to many times... probably this spring or summer.

We're working with Robert Scott Thompson on a release.

And of course our normal top notch rM artists have releases in the works. 

We're planning to continue our roughly every 6 week release process.

Sounds like you have a really nice line-up teed up, John.  Congratulations.  I've been enjoying Zero Ohms' 369 release on rM recently.

Earth Mantra is owned by Geoff / Apne Sinn - and yes - I know he was planning on launching it this month - release is all lined up - but his work got the better of him (lots of late nights and weekends) - so I'm sure it's delayed.  He hasn't asked me to update the website yet.

But - it is indeed coming very very soon and I know releases are in the pipeline.
