TABS OUT (Episode 18)

Tabs Out Banner

Last Sunday, the fine folks at Tabs Out tossed a track from our dsic – ‘Tiamat/Taniwha’ tape into their 18th episode. We’re happy they chose to talk a bit about Rano, and share a snippet of our latest release from the UK noise artist known as dsic.
But we do have to clear the air about a few things we heard on the show. One of which is the proper pronunciation of dsic. Now I must be honest, I too had been saying it wrong all this time, referring to the artist as “d-sick”. I’m pretty sure I picked that pronunciation up from a podcast in the UK that frequently plays dsic’s music in their show. My mistake! After listening to Episode 18, I asked dsic how to properly pronounce his name, and he told me its pronounced “disc”. We learn something new everyday don’t we?
Another error of pronunciation was our very own name, Rano. It is neither pronounced like Ray-No nor Ran-O, but more like Raw-No. An even better example would be to say the name of the sun-god “Ra” followed by the obvious “No” portion. 
Rano is Polish, and our name translates into English as morning. An early concept for our label name was Muzyka Rano, but we settled on the simplicity of Rano instead. We could get into all the details of our origin, but we don’t want to bore you with our story.
Instead, take some time to listen to this outstanding podcast by Tabs Out! They really do an amazing job and they showcase a diverse selection of music released only on tape cassette. You can tune into Episode 18 below, or download it (along with any episode) direct from the Tabs Out archive. We’d like to thank the gentlemen of Tabs Out for supporting Rano and cassette culture. Enjoy the show!
