Etxe (et-chay) is taken from one of the oldest known languages on Earth: Basque. In Basque, Etxe refers to a shelter, domicile, or home. An important unit of community is a ‘place’ for artists to convene and feel free to create. Here at Etxe Records we view ourselves in a similar light for like-minded bands/artists. Etxe Records is an independent record label based in Washington, DC and Los Angeles, CA. We intend to highlight and celebrate place-based sonic art. Founded in 2007 by Christopher Goett and Jenn Thomas, Greg Svitil came on board in 2009, first as an audio engineer and now as part of general operations.
