Well Rounded Records will cease to exist at the end of this year.
A lot of soul searching has gone into this decision.

It is not a commercial decision - it is a personal decision based on the current position we find ourselves now - as ever - caught between the underground and the uncompromised love of varied music (our home) and the industry / market / 'potential wider' audience that we don't particular want to pander to (source of misery).
We will honour all confirmed forthcoming releases with artists (if any are watching DO NOT panic) but will be signing no new music from here.
Also we are not disappearing - the shop will remain in Brighton - and all peeps we have worked with will be able to contact us as usual and we will conclude business professionally (at last?).
Same number, same email.
We will continue releasing ltd vinyl only releases as and when at our own will with no real industry promotion beyond the old skool record selling techniques. So dont expect much 'media' to inform you of our activities.
WE WOULD REALLY URGE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT US THRU THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR SO WE CAN GO OUT WITH DIGNITY & A BIT OF A BANG.

An ending. A new beginning. X Donga X

Big up Donga and Well Rounded, got alot of your stuff on vinyl. Favourite is still Temptations Daughter.
I remember listening to you Donga on Sub FM on a Tuesday, such a big inspiration. Made me want to start a label and release music. I always used to look forward to that show and was genuinely upset when you stopped!
Big up for the future dude, much respect,
