About Us

SPM Array

Spotted Peccary Music is North America’s finest independent record label with a focus on deep, vast and introspective soundscapes.  Since the mid-1980’s, Spotted Peccary Music (SPM) has been on a mission to develop, produce, publish and release ultra high quality, deep listening experiences that engage the listener and exceed expectations.

From deep drone, to chillout, to high energy beats, Spotted Peccary and it’s label imprints, Lotuspike & O3E, traverse the worlds of Ambient Electronic, Classic Berlin-School, Etherial Atmospheric, Spacemusic, Rock, Pure Acoustic and more; all with only one goal in mind — releasing outstanding music that transcends any boundaries previously imposed by these genres.  In many cases, Spotted Peccary releases are difficult to classify due to the label’s strong belief that good music is of utmost importance, while fitting neatly into any one category is irrelevant.

Rather than concerning itself with putting out as many releases as possible each year, SPM has always had a deeper focus on quality and artistry first and foremost, limiting its output and only releasing the very best projects from artists who are dedicated to their craft, and to the intangible details necessary for a standout release.  With a wide-ranging lineup of notable artists including Deborah Martin, Michael Stearns, David Helpling, Jon Jenkins, Erik Wøllo, Darshan Ambient, Craig Padilla, Between Interval, Johan Agebjörn, DeeperNET, and many more, the Spotted Peccary label has discovered and produced some of the finest instrumental releases of the past 25 years, setting standards and pushing boundaries in the process.

SPM remains dedicated to delivering superior sound quality, artistic excellence, and an appealing presentation that come together time and time again.  Year after year Spotted Peccary’s offerings consistently land on critic’s, editor’s, broadcaster’s and listener’s “best of” lists, confirming SPM’s reputation as one of the most respected independent record labels of its kind.
