Whirlwind Recordings was established in 2010 by recording artist, freelance bassist, composer, bandleader & producer Michael Janisch, a US native who relocated to London in 2005 and created the label speciﬁcally for the worldwide release of Purpose Built, his debut solo album.
Since then the label has grown considerably to become one of the premier new independent labels in the world, releasing an eclectic catalogue of adventurous and visceral music that spans genres, is rooted in originality and has key emphasis on the improvised. The artists on the label range from established masters to guiding lights of their generation to undiscovered stars in the making. Whirlwind’s catalogue features over 90 releases as of mid–2017 and has been praised for discovering new and exciting talent from the UK and subsequently providing them a platform to reach a global audience with their music.
