Merck Records of Miami, Florida -- who have published among all such Finnish IDM-type artists as Blamstrain and Lackluster -- have ceased their activities:
"We are both sad and happy to announce that 2006 was the last year of Merck Records. We have released 51 cds (Merck 047 + 4 Mixes) and 50 vinyls, there will be no more new releases. We have many reasons for this, in the interest of briefness we will just say that its time to move on. During 2007 we will sell off our remaining stock and there will be no more represses. We thank EVERYONE who have supported us over the years, you made this possible."
