Chaikin Records, owned and operated by drummer Brian Chase, is dedicated to the intersection of musical language in its diversity. A particular emphasis is placed on rock, jazz, classical, and sound art, and the ways in which they overlap. Focusing further within these broad circles, championed are the communities of the avant-garde: musicians and music scenes happening at the forefront of the ever evolving dialogue of creative discourse and expression. The word ‘Chaikin’ is Brian’s familial surname before it was changed to ‘Chase’ by his paternal grandfather.
