Ghostly International is a music and art company supporting work of high quality, integrity, and individuality.
"Transcending its record label roots to sell an ethos," says The New York Times, Ghostly International has grown from a boutique known for its experimental-pop and techno acumen into an internationally recognized multicultural platform representing some of the world’s best visual artists, designers, technologists, and musicians. Artists include Matthew Dear, Kllo, Mary Lattimore, Tadd Mullinix (Dabrye, JTC), Starchild & The New Romantic, Tycho, and more.
What does Ghostly sound like? “Genre-less” was a term thrown around in the early days and that idea still holds true. Ghostly’s music — as with all of its artistic pursuits — straddles stylistic divisions, carving out space where sounds and ideas can cavort without inhibition or category. The label itself is twofold. Ghostly International’s output follows a wayward path: nominally, music of electronic means, experimental methods, and pop methodology, but encompassing much more. Sibling label Spectral Sound centers on the Midwestern American Dance Sound: house, techno, electro, and related music. The imprint has played a role in the launch of such artists as Audion, Seth Troxler, Hieroglyphic Being, Avalon Emerson, Patricia, Kate Simko, and more.
