Let your night be magic. We came to the end of fourteen with only one album released, but less is better. Speaking about good, this listening pleasure from Guul can make your night wonderful. Spend it well, and in 2015 we'll come back with a lot of beautiful music. Good night.

23rd August 2013 — 2CheckOut is cancelled | December24 appears on Bandcamp

December24 on Bandcamp

There are two pieces of news we have to post. First, we continue to experience problems with 2CheckOut, as they're seemingly not interested to hold our store. So, we let it go. Second, December24 is now available on Bandcamp digitally. Please make this service a priority for shopping.




15th March 2012 — Occasion welcomes Juno (or vice versa, yep)

Occasion at Juno Download

The geography of the Occasion digital sales gradually grows. At this time, our catalogues have appeared at Juno Download. If you are not an «audiophile and nerd» (as defined by bandcamp), but at the same time prefer to listen to music legally, purchasing mp3s at Juno — the best option for the price, especially when buying a full release. However, the policy of the store implies maintaining a certain level of sales, so the digital versions of new releases in 2012 will be available exclusively from Juno Download.




18th October 2011 — Occasion welcomes Bandcamp (or vice versa)

Check Order page for new shopping opportunities

Last week's big topic — accepting PayPal payments in Russia — prompted us to decision about starting sales on Bandcamp. This option becomes now the prime one for purchasing music of the label. Remaining alternative way is buying with 2CheckOut, and it has an essential shortcoming of unability to download your digital purchase instantly. Bandcamp, on the contrary, allows immediate downloading, moreover, with wider range of formats. As for CDr releases, it's all the same here: they are usually shipped on the next day after your purchase, regardless of the way of payment you choose. Prices in Bandcamp and in 2CheckOut are the same. Nevertheless some releases still available only through 2CheckOut. In the future they will move to Bandcamp as well. Thank you for the attention and welcome to buy our music!

P.S. Please note, that release Countless Efforts To Carry On by Stanislav Vdovin is now available only for paid downloads. Those of you, who had time to download it for free, will probably agree, that this is right decision.

Occasion events

We love making events, and always did. But for some reason they weren't displayed here to date, and we decided to fix that. The «Events» section now represents independent shows, curated by the label.
