The label promises to work with "highly distinctive and pioneering electronic musicians - some established, some new" with the imprint. It adds that the label will "give space to and encourage artists to experiment and challenge themselves, anonymously if they choose".
Liberation Technologies is headed by A & R man Patrick O'Neill, whose list of associates previous to joining Mute include Actress, T++, Moritz Von Oswald, Joy Orbison, Darkstar and Zomby.
Mute's release adds: "As important as the music itself, will be statement design, a commitment to vinyl product and inventive methods of releasing each work. There are also plans to branch out into live happenings in 2012."
The first release on the new label will be the Spring EP by King Felix, a producer from Ann Arbor, Michigan who lives in Brooklyn and has also released music as Laurel Halo. Spring EP is released on download and vinyl on March 19.
Says Daniel Miller, "Electronic music is part of Mute's DNA and history, and this label is the latest expression of that."
