Latency is a record label based in Paris. Founded in 2013 by Sidney Gérard and Alexandre Said, Latency explores a vast musical spectrum with a focus on the electronic and experimental genres, in dialogue with contemporary art and performance. Latency has published physical and digital editions of diverse works from international artists such as Laurel Halo (USA), Burnt Friedman (Germany), virtuoso percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (Iran), and most recently pop musician and singer Lafawndah (France).
With a bold visual aesthetic spanning various media, the label’s creative arc is a thoroughly considered one, as reflected in their collaborations with contemporary artists for cover artworks (Marguerite Humeau, Jean-Marie Appriou, Slavs & Tatars). In addition to the releases, Latency has organised adventurous club sessions internationally at events and venues such as Atonal (Berlin) and Contact (Tokyo), as well as carefully curated concerts at Saint-Merry church and La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris, expanding the singular sonic universe it inhabits. Latency has been featured in international press such as Pitchfork, The Wire, Resident Advisor, NPR, WePresent and Dazed.
