PITS = PLACE IN TIME & SPACE
The concept behind the record label is that our Place In Time & Space contribute to the experience of art and music. We believe each person has a creative story to tell about their place in time and space, and we want to help amplify those stories. We support all artists struggling to be heard in our digitized world, especially those in our community facing oppression for being queer or of color.
PITS began as a series of after hours events in Detroit in the summer of 2016. With these events, founder John Joseph hoped to emphasize the importance of community in the electronic music underground. He connected with many other artists around the city and found a gap in the ability to publish and market their music, spurning the beginning of the PITS imprint in 2017.
