So many of the limited RI CDs are selling for less now than when they were released. Kind of sad that so few people care about these given how unique and creative the music is.

A label that sadly had to end due to understandable and sad circumstances where the decision had to be made! The label will certainly be missed by me and as a output for forward thinking electronic music. The label released some of the most Rather Interesting electronic music over the years where you had to expect the unexpected as Uwe Schmidt certainly pushed the boat out caring only about the music he wanted rather then who it will appeal too, yet delivered some of the best, strangest, most experimental, mind altering, fun, deep, odd, opinionated music across the labels many electronic varied styles of known genres, sub genres. and a mix of genres you can't easily pigeon hole! Also inventing and re-inventing genres and styles along the way too. Techno, IDM, Glitch, Electro, Ambient, Trip/Hip-Hop, Minimalism, Latin, Future-Jazz, Electronica, Abstract, Experimentalism and everything in-between including the kitchen sink was all part of the Rather Interesting sound and vision that usually went beyond the norm!!

Goodbye RI label and music. You certainly was original, daring, challenging, and unique!

Always a step ahead of the game , atom heart delivers is many facets on his own imprint
all the releases are just so dope
However 97% of the catalogue is only available on cd and most of them extremly limited
for all you eperimental , IDM freaks out there this is a must for you trust me on this one this label lives up to it's name

Boutique/vanity label in operation since 1994 for Uwe Schmidt aka Atom™, aka Atom Heart, aka, Erik Satin, aka Los Samplers, aka Schnittstelle, aka Roger Tubesound, aka Fonosandwich, aka Dropshadow Disease, aka Senor Coconut, aka Brown, aka Mono™, aka BASS, aka Semiaccoustic Nature, aka Machine Paisley, aka Interactive Music, aka Naturalist, aka Silver Sound, aka ;), aka Midisport, aka, Bund Duetscher Programmierer, aka, VSVN, aka Flextone, aka Dots, etc. Somewhat prolific (understatement) with almost 40 full length albums released on RI and almost all the albums composed produced etc and mucked about with by Uwe. At one time an almost monthly schedule of full length releases and still for a basically one man operation with such prolific rate of output, there is a surprisingly low amount of clunkers in the lot of his output.
A few exceptions in solo output include the Stereonerds (debated), Dandy Jack, and the various guests including Tetsue Innoue, Harry Hosono, Chris and Cosey, Victor Sol, Lisa Carbon, Pete Namlook, Macintalk and more!
Everyone should have an alias and Uwe has more than you probably ever will.
Watch, listen and learn. Deadpan German antics equals strange guys with funny names alluding to someone else that doesn't polish the black keys and seven guys who use no name disks and 8 bit samplers. Albums have been about Photoshop filters; Kai Krause, and brushing your teeth, and the liberal sprinkling of puns and backhanded dry humour nature of nearly everything that comes out a great amount of debate has come about concerning who's Uwe and who's not Uwe when it comes to the plethora of aliases Uwe records under and the variety of roles Uwe/Atom™ has his hands in on nearly every release from the graphics to the executive production duties. With a clean break from Germany and the teutonic heritage and the rest of europes dancefloor leaning interests somewhere around the time (1997) that Lisa Carbons Trio de Janero and the first Senor Coconut release. Uwe with his new studio Mira Musica in Santiago de Chile was free to explore the rich heritage and vendors bins of musics of the area and respective regions. With the rich history of german ex pats running about the region, the subsequent recordings veered completely off the map of most peoples expectations of electronic music and remain highly highly sought after due to the general release quantity being limited to one edition of 1000 pressings. As of this writing very very few subsequent licensing and no repress mentionings those interested are left fending for themselves and hitting up friends, MTM and Emusic.com for accessibility to these wonderful, strange and as the labels namesake suggests rather interesting releases.
Each album promises years from now to baffle and confound your children as teenagers raiding your cd racks when you get about to having them.
