Moving deeper into the science of the body and its movements, Caduceus Records is proud to launch the new Caduceus Empirical sublabel, dedicated to experimental studies in rhythms and exercises designed to attune the ear to the inner pulse. As the Caduceus is a symbol of the duality of the material and spiritual world, its Empirical side will embrace more completely the spiritual by releasing explorations into the inner realms while keeping the material side still within sight. Inspired by the legacies of Chain Reaction, Mille Plateaux, IDM, and classic experimental electronic music, Caduceus Empirical will focus on the deeper and more ambient side of sound. The rhythmic structures will still remain, but here they will be emphasized less strongly in favor of textural melodic elements that fully immerse the listener in a world of sound. Releases will come in the format of full artist digital EPs, with occasional remix efforts that remain in the spirit of the label’s mission. Nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates, everything is music.

Currently, the German independent hit “Love Steaks”, who was one of the six nominees for the German Film Prize, has started in cinemas in Switzerland, opening in Zürich at RIFF RAFF, in Luzern at BOURBAKI, in Bern at KINO KUNSTMUSEUM and from September on in St. Gallen at KINOK, with more cities being added continuously. The exclusive sneak preview on 16th August 2014 at XENIX Open Air cinema in Zurich was well received and director Jakob Lass, who was present at the event, was very excited about the start. Together with its partner Stamm Film AG, daredo media has brought the movie that was produced and directed by students of Germany’s most respected film university HFF Konrad Wolf to the screens of Switzerland.The movie was awarded with many prizes, for instance at the Filmfest München, at Karlovy Vary and Rotterdam, it has won the Camerimage and Slamdance Festival prize and the Max Ophüls Prize in Saarbrücken. With „Love Steaks“ the makers tell a love story in which two ways of life collide: “do good” versus “live hard”. Clemens and Lara are having a tough time living out those principles within their traditionally hierarchical workplace. Yet that’s how they meet, love and challenge one another. Eventually “doing good” will do harm. And “living it hard” will leave you weak. A fight for love evolves.

Launched in 2007 by Nick Curly and Marc Scholl, Cécille and its sister imprint Cécille Numbers are the Mannheim-based labels which have helped launch the careers of a hugely successful group of acts. Names like Markus Fix, SIS, Robert Dietz, Anthea and, of course, Nick himself can thank the label for their ascent to global renown.Their first half decade saw the explosion of what was coined the Mannheim sound but, even after the dust had settled, both labels remain as prolific and influential as ever and, later on, would welcome a second wave of talent to the label as Uner, Einzelkind, Lee Burridge & Matthew Dekay, Matthias Meyer, DJ Sneak, Huxley, Sebo K, Livio & Roby contributed to their continued success with a range of quality house and techno. As we entered 2012, Cecille unveiled their first artist album – Nick Curly’s ‘Between The Lines’ which wrong-footed listeners with a more laid-back sound, yet still propelled Nick on a 47-date club and festival world tour. Cécille parties have taken place around the world, from the terrace of Amnesia Ibiza to New York and back to Frankfurt.

Over fifteen years ago, a story of success began in the Austrian town of Eisenerz. What started out as a one-person operation in a cramped living-room, became one of the biggest record labels of the independent scene. Fans of the heavier genres have long come to know the name “Napalm Records”. As of today, Napalm has released more than 450 albums – many of which have reached cult status. The summer of 2013 brought Napalm Records two groundbreaking chart entries. POWERWOLF entered the German Longplay Charts at Number 1, making it the first time that a Napalm Records artist claimed the crown. Shortly after, SALTATIO MORTIS repeated this success and made it to the pole position as well. Furthermore, POWERWOLF proved to be an international success, by entering the world charts on number 38! However, Napalm Records does not only limit its operation to the support and development of new talent or the release of its artists’ recordings. We´re proud of to announce, that from the 1st of August, Napalm Records will be distributed via digedo in a lot of countries like France, Spain, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands, Russia.
