Steve Lowenthal presents experimental guitar works and recordings from VDSQ, Thin Wrist and Black Editions.
Vin Du Select Qualitite is a label that began with a concentrated focus on presenting instrumental solo acoustic guitar music by artists that expanded on the instrument?s deep roots in blues and folk music. The label has expanded to include records featuring a wider array of instrumentation and arrangements.
“Some of our artists fit more comfortably next to Sonny Sharrock or Derek Bailey than any kind of traditional folk guitar. We’ve expanded the palette to more instrumentation and sounds while maintaining the spirit of what VDSQ is about. Now we have artists that can exist in ambient, free-jazz, or more traditional finger-picking guitar styles. VDSQ is about forward-thinking contemporary guitar music.” – Steve Lowenthal
