Amek nl_18: Vanishing Standards II
New music, new videos, and a 30% off for all our Substack readers
This is the last Amek transmission for 2021, we bring another busy year to a close with a few last updates, the most important of which the release of the new volume of Vanishing Standards, a compilation that has now grown to become a series. Always looking ahead, we’re rarely interested in recaps but this year ends with 13 new Amek releases and few quite memorable live shows. We also managed to work on three zines, put together our first (secret) mixtape and did hundreds of hours of radio broadcasts.
Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without everyone who shows up at our events, drops by the merch stall, scores our stuff on Bandcamp, or digs the records and zines we distribute for friends from all over the world. To thank you we’ve prepared a small end of the year sale so you can fill in the gaps of your Amek collection. Find the details below.
VA - Vanishing Standards II
Two years after the previous instalment, our biyearly compilation Vanishing Standards is back. The new volume once again aims at revealing new and exciting works by our expanded family of artists thus the epic tracklist. Vanishing Standards II collects works from debuting projects and unexpected collaborations, as well as a few remix and cover versions.

Two weeks ago, Amek artist and dear friend V-Stók announced his new full-length “Liminal”. It’s available to pre-order on CD & digital and will be released via his own positionDisposition imprint. The CD looks amazing and judging by the first single, it will be a solid listen. Find more about it here.
