When Excision announced the launch of his own record label back in September 2020, it was clear he had a vision.
Before Subsidia Records became a powerhouse tastemaker in the electronic music scene, it existed only in a conceptual mood-board. The artwork, which the label shared today, shows an opulent cityscape that mirrors its status as a bass music utopia. Check out the early concept art below, courtesy of a serendipitous post by Subsidia’s Twitter account.
Subsidia Records, of course, eventually kicked the EDM community’s door down with a stupefying 118-track debut compilation. Constructed as a four-part narrative, the expansive record explored a slew of electronic sub-genres, such as dubstep, future bass, and experimental trap.
After Subsidia shared the early artwork, Excision eventually chimed in with a tweet of his own to offer a bit more insight into the conceptual design of his flagship record label, saying his team’s goal was to “create a unique city unlike any we had seen before.” “We rendered the entire virtual future world in 3D for the artwork – can’t wait to show you more!” he wrote.
