About Us

Posted by bestimmer On Juli - 17 - 2013

The two mates, Tom & Roskow from Berlin finally fullfilled their dream of forming their own record label, sharing their musical knowledge gained through 20-years record digging experience – their ambition: to give people the opportunity to join this musical circle and to spread the great music they have and will discover.

As usual, it started all way back with the beginning of the hip-hop era and through the search for sampes and DJ-friendly tunes from old funk, soul and jazz records.

At first, US records were the most obvious choice, but this quickly spread to finding obscure records like those from West and East Germany, then later from East Europe, and finally global grooves and music.

As consumers of re-issues and rare groove compilations we were very often sad and unsatisfied with the quality of productions and of their musical content. That’s  why we decided to design and produce the records – especially the covers – in an old-fashioned and quality way. Good and rare music deserves high quality packaging. Our covers are handmade with this vintage surface feeling and haptics.

From our releases you can expect all the music that we love:

Rare grooves, funk, soul, jazz, psychedelic funk & beat, krautrock, singer songwriter and folky music, library music, soundtrack music, DJ- and producer-friendly music from Turkey and other oriental countries, India, Africa, Cuba, Brazil, East Germany, West Germany, Russia, Yugoslavia, and other East European Countries, and so on…

Compilations, original artist albums, limited collectable pressings, released and unreleased gems, unreleased archive material will be available on vinyl.
