Mute was founded by Daniel Miller in 1978, and since then has signed and developed some of the world’s most influential recording artists – including Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Yazoo, Goldfrapp, Erasure, Moby and Richard Hawley – and become home to a crop of emerging talent and recent signings such as Josh T. Pearson, Big Deal, Beth Jeans Houghton and S.C.U.M.

Whilst maintaining a firmly eclectic roster, from the earliest days of The Normal, Fad Gadget and DAF through to the techno era with artists such as Plastikman / Richie Hawtin and Speedy J, and to the present day with hybrid electronic artists such as Yeasayer and S.C.U.M, the label has always been a champion of electronic music.

Mute also looks after a catalogue of seminal electronic artists such as Can and Cabaret Voltaire.

Mute Liberation Technologies has now been running since autumn 1994, as an FTP site, a Telnet site and a BBS (all no longer available) and since spring 1995 as a web site. The web site was relaunched in July 2004 and the version you are viewing now was launched in August 2011.
