Playing out of time.
Séance Centre is a label, publisher, and distributor
conjuring timeless music from the past, present and future.
Researching music is a habit. Sometimes we’re lucky enough to find original stock of interesting records, books, and cassettes. Our shop offerings are culled from our best finds.
We are always keeping our ears open, listening for captivating sounds to rescue from the folds of time. Séance Centre is dedicated to releasing these discoveries with a focus on sound quality, design, and narrative.
We’re not just hooked on music, but the musicians, cultures, and places that create it. We contextualize our releases with interviews, essays, photos, and documentary storytelling, to explore all of the elements that coalesce to create works that move.
Teaming up with people on parallel wavelengths we're helping to spread the word about the music we love. If you’re a shop or label, get in touch to learn more.
