The London label winds down after nearly a decade.

Blackest Ever Black has ceased operations. The label’s last issue is the vinyl release of its final compilation A short illness from which he never recovered.

The 10-track compilation has been available from Bandcamp since April, but its vinyl release in October pinpoints the end of the label’s production. A short illness from which he never recovered features several artists from the label’s history including Carla dal Forno, Unchained and Scythe.

Blackest Ever Black was first founded by Kiran Sande in 2010. The imprint has released more than 100 records from artists such as Prurient, Raime, Silvia Kastel, Tropic of Cancer and more over the last decade. The label’s offshoots, A14 and Id Mud, will also shut down.
