ZOHARUM – a Polish label covering leftfield music set up in 2007. At the very beginning, its sole aim was to release music by Bisclaveret, but it has expanded very quickly and evolved in many varied directions. The catalogue consists of more than 200 titles with ambient, industrial, experimental, electroacoustic, idm, post-rock, cold wave, minimal synth... and it is still expanding. These are mostly CD releases, but the label has already had some releases on vinyl plus special editions (with many additions apart from CDs and tapes). The label does not limit itself to one type of sound, style or genre. While choosing new titles for their catalogue, the label creators cater for their own tastes first to act between various genres. The label collaborates with both domestic (Polish) and foreign artists.
Zoharum releases debut albums by promising artists, new albums by renowned acts, but also reissues of interesting and important independent albums that give insight into these classic artists to new wave of listeners. The label put a lot of effort into visual concept and aesthetic vision of their products. Apart from releasing music, they are also co-founders of ”Hard Art” magazine (together with Beast of Prey label), and they organize various concerts, festival and other art events.
