Conceived in 2010 in Brooklyn, New York, Long Island Electrical Systems (aka L.I.E.S. Records) started as an outlet to release the music of a tight knit group of producers based throughout the city. Closely associated with “outsider house” genre of techno, L.I.E.S. Records is a staple contributor to underground electronic music.
Inspirations drawn from 90’s D.I.Y. and hardcore scenes come through both in their music and graphic. The Burned Alive Tee, designed by Pete Leonard, echos L.I.E.S. ethos of scuzzy, underground counter-culture.
