Sara Svanholm has big plans, and not only her. The Copenhagen-based member of the now-defunct Apeiron Crew, who has made a name for herself under the Mama Snake moniker and co-ran the Ecotherm label, has recently teamed up with several people from various fields of the creative industry to launch Amniote Editions. Less of a conventional record label and more of a creative platform, Amniote Editions is “trying to build something where the focus is on the talent, content and music rather than likes, press photos and algorithms,” explains Svanholm via e-mail. “I find the most parts of the electronic music industry to be quite broken these days because of the hunt for instant gratification, so I have focused my energy on working in other fields instead of fighting a futile battle. I’d rather at least try and do things a bit differently.” This includes a move away from social media and so-called “capsule releases,” from which the project takes its name. Mama Snake’s contribution to our Groove podcast features a variety of tracks forthcoming on Amniote Editions in this until now unspecified format as well as new material by Apeiron Crew colleague Solid Blake – and a surprise hidden track.
