In the last year, through projects such as Domino at Uniqlo, the Faber & Faber / Domino published Loops periodical, and the launch of its own book imprint, Domino has enhanced its reputation for risk taking creativity outside its main focus of releasing new music. Domino Radio is the latest and boldest installment in its ongoing mission to deliver and build on the label’s mission of representing world-class creativity.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. – Aristotle
