digedo welcomes Offline, IMPVLSE, Konnekkt Records and Schallinterferenz Records to the family!
OFFLINE was created by Brad Wilder, Christopher Groove and Benjamin Sagan in the recent past. A simple meeting in a bar had produced an exchange of previously unspoken musical urges and desires that would prove you need some chalk with your cheese sometimes.
It unravelled in the Groove Vienna HQ, a flickering thankfully fully soundproofed studio that was so smoke filled it made the Beijing smog look like a pleasant morning in the Maldives. Apparently the expensive acoustic treatment had factored this in and so it proved over these next fun filled weeks and months.
Offline was conceived. Events, gigs, a record label and other stuff. It would look beautiful and breathe quality. Direction and design that would be utterly distinctive. An abandoned puppy was rescued from the wintry streets and named Walter– it was the one occasion they had to walk to the takeaway as the phones had gone offline. Offline would be rather red with neon notes and look gorgeous whatever it put on display. An umbrella that would allow not only the partnership but the individuals to express and flourish – and loads of other stuff. A record label. Home cooked music to distract and to dance to. Freedom for and collaboration with fellow travellers. Music for sharing and evolving and stir frying with as little oil as possible.Events that would also be quite red and look devastatingly good because of a cutting edge approach to design linked to a sound that went and was Offline. Smaller gigs and collaborations that stretch out somewhere else and unselfconsciously explore locations and opportunities.
Upcoming releases from Felix da Housecat & Jamie Principle
IMPVLSE is a German newcomer label founded by Alex Martin. Releasing pumping House and Pop Tracks, IMPVLSE is also presenting the UltraViolet Clubshow in the number one club for EDM in Germany; Bootshaus.
Hard Techno label from Germany run by Dolica.
Dolica was born on 3 May 1986 in Schweinfurt/Germany. Inspired by life and listening techno he began to produce Techno music. Soon the Label “Konnekkt” was born under his hand. The tracks arise by impressions environment and feeling. Also to transfer the energy of the music into the soul of the people is a very big honor and assignment.
Schallinterferenz Records is a young techno label from Berlin. “We mostly produce tracks with a dark atmosphere, but we don’t just commit ourselves to it. We also want to distribute Trance, Deephouse, House, Techhouse and generally relaxed music. Some of our artists have meanwhile made a name for themselves in the German but also foreign techno scene and have also successfully marketed their music on renowned other labels such as Oxytech Rec, Hardwandler Rec, Nachtwandler Rec, Schwarze Frequenz Records, Finder Records and other labels”.
With new track ‘Warschauer Strasse’, Claudio Ricci has created an expansive seven minute workout of twisted synths and deep house drums. The first remix comes from long time techno heavyweight Timo Maas and the prolific and inventive Basti Grub. Their singular remix speeds up the original and layers in fluttering toms and percussive sounds as well as broad, groaning synths and the distant sound of a bustling city at rush hour. Sudam label boss and Ibiza based artist Kintar flips the track into something spacious and haunting. Eerie keys and sweeping synths keep you on edge as the rubbery techno groove rolls on into the night. Bulgarian based Metodi Hristov loves to experiment and has a distinctive techno style that gains support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer. In his hands the track becomes a peak time tech banger!
