Label of the Month • Interview with Robin from Cheptel Records
Written by english on 29 juin 2018
Cheptel Records is an independent label from Switzerland and our European Label of the Month for June on euradio. Owen got the chance to talk with founder Robin Girod, who spoke about the origins of the label being a way to support the local music community, which is very much the capacity in which it works today! In fact, the label is still ran without profit, but money is and was never the goal for them. Cheptel Records also works mainly with musicians who write in French, and Robin explains that this comes down to authenticity of the message and the lyrics.
All three founders of the label are musicians themselves, and Robin’s group Temps de Nuit have actually just released some music, which he talks about at the end of the interview.
We play tracks from our Label of the Month every weekday at 3 o’clock on The Afternoon Show.
