In just five years, Joachim Spieth’s Affin label has not only clocked up over 100 releases, but so too has it established itself as a go-to label for fans of quality House and Techno. Sometimes the sounds are peak time, others they are more suited to the early warm up hours, but always are they fresh offerings from a wide range of contemporary talents. Importantly, the support that Affin garners comes from respected DJs and producers around the world, ensuring it’s not a hype label but one built on consistently quality output.
Artists including Deepchild, Little Fritter, Roberto and many more have contributed to the labels great back catalogue from their bases all over Europe, Asia and America. Affin remixes have always been quality affairs as well, calling on the likes of Brendon Moeller, Samuel L Session and many more to offer their take on the originals. 2012 was one of the imprint’s finest years to date, releasing 6 vinyl Eps and picking up chartings from influential spinners like Juan Atkins, Martin L Gore, Kevin Sanderson, Josh Wink and Stacey Pullen, amongst others.
Over the years there have been a number of well received and specially curated compilations, all of which have showcased the inventive Affin sound bringing new fans with each instalment. Alongside the musical output, there have been outstanding Affin label parties in clubs such as Hive in Zurich, Swizerland and Tresor in Berlin, Germany, taking the Affin sound out of the studio and into the clubs.
The latest development at this diverse electronic label has been to start pressing up gorgeous vinyl releases. Digital releases will continue, but this way wax lovers wont get left out.
