Two hotly tipped young Demerara Records artists will play Vanishing Point on 6th June. Cholly and our newest signing Josie will both appear at the live-streamed event taking place at the Ivy House in Peckham.

In the meantime don’t forget about our electronic ambient and experimental special Vanishing Point on 2nd May at the Ivy House. We are there on the first Thursday of every month so come and hang out in the otherworldly Twin Peaks Roadhouse atmosphere of London’s most beautiful venue. Get tickets here.









The next Vanishing Point @ The Ivy House is on Thursday 2nd May. It is a special electronic ambient & experimental music night; a real one to remember.


On the bill: 2 artists who record for Linear Obsessional; BBC 6 Music Freak Zone-featured Smallhaus & Linear Obsessional founder and composer-artist Richard Sanderson plus amazing young electronic art music duo Small Loris and exciting new experimental trio HMS Loss.

The gig will also be live streamed on the internet by bndr Music. Vanishing Point is becoming one of the key events in the live music calendar in South East London. We are here on the first Thursday of every month. Come and hang out and if you are a band or artist talk to us about whether you might be right for us to put on at a future gig.


Thursday 4th April is the date of the next Vanishing Point @ The Ivy House. And it’s a pretty special one celebrating talented young women in new music.

We are very excited to announce that Vanishing Point will move from being every other month to the first Thursday of every month at the beautiful Ivy House in Nunhead from 4th April 2019.

Neil March @ VP 6 December

Demerara Records head & composer Neil March explained: ‘It is still our intention to alternate between Vanishing Point and Vanishing Point Solo but the difference is that, from April, all the gigs will be at the Ivy House where the facilities are so good and our relationship with the venue is first class. In fairness our relationship with the Cafe of Good Hope is great too but there are practical reasons why it is not ideal for what we are trying to do, particularly as a long term project’.

The first gig in the new monthly series will be the one featuring Luvia, Yvonne Hercules and Environmental Sound Foundation. Details can be found here.



Demerara Records will be pursuing a new model for future releases on the label. From now on every release will have a Bandcamp Pre-Release Date. For the ensuing

two-month period it will be available exclusively as a download from our Bandcamp page.

After two months the Worldwide Digital Release Date will kick in and it will then be available to download or stream via all established digital platforms. If the Bandcamp sales are sufficient we will produce a CD version which will only be on sale at live events.
