Rapid, nasty, biting, raw: Silence is Violence is a fresh take on ‘digital hardcore’ from techno-punk champions, Maelstrom and Louisahhh. Early reviews include “makes the ears bleed”, a fact which has been embraced (and celebrated) by the track’s creators. ‘Silence is violence, don’t you know, it always hurts the most to grow’. We are growing. Join us.
Accompanying the track, a video and a line of merch will be released, created with LA-based artist Joshua Spencer.

Two of techno’s brightest shards, the oft-collaborating Maelstrom and LOUISAHHH are delighted to present the label RAAR. The name connotes both ‘rare, uncommon, unique’ and the sound of a guttural roar, the wild cry of a true passion project.
Started as equal parts research division of techno’s new frontiers, haven for the sacred and profane, and ‘benevolent anarchy’, RAAR aims to release truly innovative work from and for brave sonic explorers. Invested in both shedding new light on techno legends and in exposing and uplifiting new talent, RAAR presents fresh work from illustrious figures in the genre and the work of newcomers and emerging artists.
A techno label for punk rockers, a punk rock label for techno-heads, a celebration of the warrior spirit that feeds and inspires innovation and exploration, RAAR is born.
