..are just some of the many fine djs/live acts that have played the club since 1996.
But then we found it in our nostrils to start a label branch. Which feels good.
Indeed, we are now a record label. Releasing vinyl, the destilled, black blood of the gods, made audible. Truly.
(We also release digital, though with considerably less weight.)
We love vinyl. Don't know it? Try it. It makes you healthy.
Pr February 2017 we've released no less than 13 EPs and 2 albums that we are all very proud of..
Artists we've signed so far include CementO, Christian Tilt, Dortmund, Espen Lauritzen, Henrik S, Hutmacher, Kahuun, KSMISK, Mental Overdrive, Mind Over MIDI, Nordenstam, Saftronic, Skatebård, Thomas Urv, Urhaug, Vakum and +Plattform.
We still do parties but now we call them release parties, one party per ..uhm release.
Taste it: Release party.
Mmmmm. Oh yes.
