Dark Winter was created in late 2002 by Minnesota recording artist Nathan Larson (Samsa, Bunk Data). Nathan was one of the co-founders of the Green House Music label that released a wide variety of atmospheric and ambient music by artists such as Vir Unis, Steve Roach, and Alio Die. After GHM closed it's doors, Nathan created the Dark Winter label to continue releasing music with a focus on dark ambient music.

Dark Winter is currently operating as a net.label dedicated to releasing dark ambient and unconventional music from around the world. We do not presently manufacture, sell or distribute records, CDs or tapes of our artists. All Dark Winter releases are available for free download in MP3 format individually or packaged using WinZip.

Endless Ascent is the sister label to Dark Winter. Operated by Nathan Larson since 2008, Endless Ascent features a lighter selection of ambient and atmospheric releases.
