Ruweh Records is a Brooklyn based independent record label established in 2015. The label focuses on introducing the selected records with free musical approach: free in the sense of crossing borders of various realms, free in the sense of deconstructing the existing forms, and free in the sense of open-mindness. We aspire to provide our audience with compelling, meaningful music and quality sound.“Ruweh” means footsteps in Ainu, an indigenous language of Ainu tribe of Japan, which is now at risk of extinguishing. A language that has once been used to express maybe lost one day, but the sound and energy of it will indefinitely stay with us. And music is the same way. Music would embrace you one day, and suddenly leave like a wind. But it will imprint it's rhythmical footsteps within us no matter what.
The labels's celebrated first release is Rema Hasumi's UTAZATA, which is now available in CD, 12” LP and digital download.
