Home Normal is a relatively young and small independent 'organic-minimal-electronic-folk' record label with currently 66 releases, based in Nakajuku, Tokyo, Japan and every now and then London. The five-years-old label is curated by Ian Hawgood, co-run with Ben Jones, with design assistance from Jeremy Bible and Christian Roth.
We've talked to Ian to find out as much as possible about this special little world he's created with so much honest enthusiasm and hard work. You can read about the history of Home Normal, the birth and concept of its sublabels, the exclusivity of each release, the importance of supporting each other and some exciting future plans. Ian also did a smashing 2 hours (!) mix featuring some of his favourite releases and plenty as-of-yet-unreleased tracks from the future – exclusively for the readers and listeners of Sounds Of A Tired City.
