Then Philo said, “I don’t know of a space online for a wider variety of darker, shadowy, somber and cold music. I know numerous places for a smaller specific niche, but as someone who loves dark wave, goth rock, dark ambient, post-punk, EBM, death rock, neofolk, synthpop and more, as well as darker shades of many other genres, why can’t all that great darker music be found in one spot? Whether others do or do not identify with any of the personal labels that come from that I know I’m not the only one.”

Thus the idea for Unlit.net began percolating on August 2, 2019, at Catch One Underground in Los Angeles while waiting for Covenant to take the stage for what would prove to be a disappointing concert. It would, however, take a global pandemic, coupled with way too much isolated free time, for the idea to become a reality. Unlit.net officially launched March 1, 2021, with a very simple mission: sharing the dark stuff we love, primarily music, with those that love the dark too.
