Erased Tapes Records is a London-based independent record label focusing on releasing avant-garde and experimental electronic music.


The record company was established by Robert Raths in early 2007 in London, with the release of Ryan Lee West's Vemeer EP under the Aparatec moniker.[1] The label is sometimes mentioned for its strong sonic and visual aesthetic with a special focus on packaging and design,[2][3] which has seen collaborations with FELD, Supermundane and Gregory Euclide[4] Erased Tapes has a tradition of releasing a free compilation every 10 releases.[5]

In late 2011 Erased Tapes Records opened its publishing arm Erased Tapes Music. In 2014 Erased Tapes Music launched the Meet The Composer series.
