The idea for Retronym all started in 2008 when two long-time friends realised that there were a lot of awfully talented artists out in the world that weren't getting the recognition they deserved. Well, some of them were, but that still wasn't enough. The growth in popularity of internet-based record labels prompted the birth of a creative hub to collect and promote all forms of expression and artistic ideas, to create a new culture of self-expression without limits or boundaries. A place where people can withold nothing. Sounds pretentious doesn't it? Well thankfully it isn't, because we fucking hate them apples.
If it gives us an insight into the unique way every individual mind works - be it sound, music, painting, sculpture, poetry, stories, photography, hand-sewn teddybears, custom designed wallpaper, clothing, films, or anything else your lovely little mind can conjure up, chances are that we love it.
With a complete new look for our year of accomplishment, 2009, we aim to grow and become the place for art and all the lovely things that go along with it. Fear us, mortals.
