Amen is a vienna-based record label, run by Aleksandar Vučenović, (who is currently studying at the Angewandte and TU)*, which was established in 2016 and focuses primarily on electronic and experimental music. Having presented a broad range of genres with the "Amen Compilation", the imrpint continued it's journey in the underground scene with releases by artists from all over the world. While setting no restrictions when it comes to the music being released on Amen, the output is aiming to challenge the listener; moving around fluidly between atmosphere and impulsiveness, dystopian noise and uplifting anthems, bedroom melancholy and club tracks. The imprint is also known for it's strong use of imagery and symbolism in a visual context, whereby the label creates it's own unique aesthetic style, which is mostly inspired by Aleksandar's interest in spritualism and it's symbols. Having released music from artists from the US, Russia, Belgium, Japan, China, Spain, etc. in its early stages, Amen wants to focus on building and supporting a local scene in vienna now, celebrating it's first showcase at the closing night of wellwellwell.
