FINEST IN BLACK VINYL

About Us

Posted by bestimmer On July - 17 - 2013

The two digging-buddies, Tom Sky & Roskow Kretschmann had a dream of forming their own record label, sharing their musical knowledge & worldwide vinyl overview, gained through 30-years record digging experience.

Their ambition is simple and easy to understand:

To give people the opportunity to join a musical world and to spread great music they already 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 with samples, like those from West and East Germany, then later from East Europe, and finally global grooves and music.

As consumers of re-issues and compilations they were very often sad and unsatisfied by the non-effort of people, with the quality of the productions and mainly with the musical content.

That’s why they decided to produce records and form Black Pearl Records to produce high quality audio products for music lovers.
