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