Latency is a record label based in Paris. It was founded in 2013 by Sidney Gerard and Alexandre Said. The label explores a vast musical spectrum in dialogue with contemporary art and live performance. Latency has published physical and digital editions of diverse works from international artists such as Laurel Halo, virtuoso percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, and pop musician Lafawndah.
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, Jill Mulleady, Slavs & Tatars). In addition to the releases, Latency has organised club sessions internationally at events and venues such as Atonal (Berlin) and Contact (Tokyo), as well as 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 and WePresent.
