ObliqSound is a record label that concentrates on music that resists easy categorization.

It was founded by Tobias Tanner, Michele Locatelli, and Ralf Schmid. They studied music together at the New School in Manhattan. Their intent with Obliqsound is to produce musicians with a background in jazz whose music crosses genres. The roster includes Gilfema, which consists of Lionel Loueke, a guitarist from Benin; Massimo Biolcati, a Swedish-Italian bassit, and drummer Ferenc Nemeth from Hungary. Other atypical acts are Maori singer Tama Waipara and Flügelschlag!, a group from Germany which uses three pianos.[1]
