mital-U ‘the small global indie-label’ was founded in 1996 by Bruno W with the intention, to establish a record-label for people who like alternative and independent produced music!
The real beginning of activities in music production goes back to 1979 when Bruno W met the (in CH+DE) notorious Lucerne punks CRAZY and produced the first punk LP in Switzerland in 1980. Afterwards the production of further records for CRAZY as well as for his ‘own’ band mittageisen. Some years later (1991) starting the World-Wide-Web activities and founding the record label mital-U. In the following record productions with relevant postpunk bands like The Vyllies, mittageisen, GRAUZONE. Besides the activity as a label, mital-U also includes a music publisher (LUNA-MUSIK).
In the last years mital-U has become increasingly involved in video/film projects on alternative music and subcultural movements.
Not only because of the roots in the punk movement we strive for the greatest possible artistic and commercial independence. Based on our socio-cultural roots and business management skills we want to “force sustainable development with creative strategies”.
Due to the cultural history and affinity mital-U concentrates on the production and distribution of music in the context of postpunk (new wave, dark wave, industrial, drum & bass) as well as related projects in film, graphics, fashion, design, etc.
We see ourselves as a competent, complementary partner for artists who want to concentrate on their creative work and are interested in a fair and professional cooperation. The cooperation takes place in the form of projects and commonly defined goals and framework conditions.
Information about our activities can be found on the websites Productions and News.
mital-U is a not-for-profit organization. This means that all revenues, after covering production costs and compensation for artists, are used for new projects and donated to organizations such as DiEM25, eXtinction Rebellion, CADUS.
