Just shy of celebrating its 17th year n5MD is proud to announce its exclusive North American physical and worldwide digital distribution partnership with Redeye Worldwide.
n5MD (“No Fives, Minidiscs!”) is a record label based in Oakland, CA and is most known as a berth for more emotive styles of contemporary music. Founded in late 2000, its aim was to release music solely on the MiniDisc format. After a small string of releases on MiniDiscs, SONY deemed the format antiquated so n5MD forged ahead with more consumer friendly formats, including vinyl. The label is often name-checked for its international roster and broad catalogue encompassing such genres as post-rock, IDM, shoegaze and modern composition.
