33 Independent Record Labels You Should Know
"...blurring the lines between experimental and pop music... [they] tackle this divide and make it vanish with their sounds, as more extreme elements fade in and out among the colorful, obtuse pop aspirations. Releasing music from Japan, North America, and the Philippines, Zoom Lens is unique in erasing borders and uniting listeners."


Electronic Beats
"...blends dreamy indie with 8-bit and rave euphoria"


i-D
"While 88 Rising is putting Asian hip-hop artists in the global spotlight, Zoom Lens is delving into the dreamy underworld of East and Southeast Asian post-pop”


The Fader
System Focus: Inside 1080p, Zoom Lens & the New Digital DIY Labels
"...broadening definitions of punk"

The Fader Mix
"...one of the most aesthetically compelling labels in existence. You can never predict what their next release will sound like—because clearly they're giving left-field and unsung voices broad creative control—but you can bet that what comes out will move you"


Kill Screen
Pop, Politics, And Everything In Between: The Virtual Families of Netlabels
"...a community unified by commonality in feeling and ideology, music that’s not afraid to talk about the depressing side of life, while staying true to the nature of pop music"


Pitchfork
"...embraces the internet's ability to overcome geographic and linguistic boundaries"

Interview: Zoom Lens’ Meishi Smile on J-Pop, Living On The Web, and Real Life
