Pioneering electronica/glitch label Mille Plateaux rises from the grave, continues Clicks + Cuts compilations

Mille Plateaux, who we last saw in 2006 after a brief revival, will be revived once again in May by Marcus Gabler. Known for a respected library of music that has covered styles like micro-house, glitch, and sound art, the label originally folded in 2004 after a 10-year run when its parent company went kaput. The label is responsible for works by Gas (Wolfgang Voigt), Kid606 (pictured), Alec Empire, and Vladislav Delay, as well as the groundbreaking Clicks + Cuts compilations that showcased younger talent within the avant-electronic world.

New company operator Marcus Gabler promises that the third time’s the charm and that the second resurrection promises “new artists, new music, new sub-labels, a new website, new pants, and further installments of the Clicks + Cuts compilations.” New sub-labels for a newly relaunched label? Gabler’s a gamblin’ man.
