Sinjitos Records is a music label that established by a bunch of people with similar vision of offering eclecticism and variety into the saturated Indonesian music scene. It was started as an outlet to release the music by Sinjitos Studio regulars before finally evolving into a legitimate label in 2007. Unlike many labels that limited themselves on releasing music within a specified genre, we are keen on releasing good music with variety of sound and style. We are also distributing many releases by other labels along with the ones from our own artists as well.
For such a young label, Sinjitos Records has some of the most impressive releases in recent years among its roster. Its first release, Gugun And The Bluesbug's "Turn In On" is well-received among critics and music fans, and listed as one of the best local releases in 2007 by Rolling Stone Indonesia. In only two day after its release, Santamonica's "Curiouser and Curiouser" is nominated as The Best Local Release by Free! Magazine and listed as one of the favorites by editors of Trax Magazine as well as one of the best album in 2008 by Rolling Stone Magazine. Sinjitos third release Monkey to Millionaire's Lantai Merah had proven to be one of the most successful debut in 2009 and very well-received among fans and critics. The album was listed as the 2009's best lists by publications like Rolling Stone Indonesia, Trax Magazine, Detikcom, Jakarta Globe, and Malaysia's Junk Magazine.
Recently, Sinjitos Records released "Subliminal" from Jakarta's post punk heroes The Porno and Monkey to Millionaire's Strange Is The Song In Our Conversation and in 2010 Bayu Risa's 'Rise and Start Again'.
