Gondwana Records is an independent record label based primarily in Manchester, England. Founded in 2008 by Matthew Halsall to shine a light on the talent Matthew heard in the local clubs, Gondwana has now grown into a truly international record label with offices in Manchester and London and working with artists from the UK, Belgium, Australia and the USA.
Matthew Halsall studied both as a musician/composer and a producer and in later years developed a passion for DJing that has informed his work as a producer. Label designer Daniel Halsall, a key part of the Gondwana story from day one, studied graphic design/illustration/photography and video production. In 2014, London based PR and artist manager Kerstan Mackness joined the Gondwana team, with responsibility for artist development and marketing.
Gondwana Records has released albums by Portico Quartet, Mammal Hands, Dwight Trible, Matthew Halsall & The Gondwana Orchestra, Nat Birchall, Noya Rao, Phil France, John Ellis and GoGo Penguin. With future releases scheduled from Allysha Joy, STUFF. and Caoilfhionn Rose.
