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”.
In the last weeks we have implemented some new features and functions to improve your workflow with the Content Management Console (CMC):
NEW: Clone Bundle
To simplify the creation of similar products (e.g. for different release strategies or just very similar bundles), you can now clone an existing bundle. The “clone” will contain the same tracks, territories, price tiers and distribution channels, also the complete metadata except from catalogue number, EAN/UPC code and of course the cover artwork.
NEW: Trend Figures Status
As the daily trends in the analytic section are only estimated and not 100% reliable sales figures that we get from the shops by feed, there’s not guarantee that the shops have actually provided us with current figures.
Under Analytics -> Audio -> Trend Status you can see which shop has provided us with daily trends or not (yet).
NEW: Youtube Claims (Beta)
On the product info page you can now see which Youtube Videos have claimed the audio tracks included in your bundle (if your channel is managed by daredo GmbH). Please not that the tab loading time may be a bit longer.

Tom Bucher and Christos Kessidis are no strangers to the deep and tech house family of germany and moreover to Plastic City. Their first Plastic City release as mp3 “The Dark Night” in 2010 and the following single E.P.´s “Time”, “Fate” and “Saratonga” showed where sound and style of Bucher & Kessidis are aiming at. Their sound as a platform for romanticism and functionality includes playful melody lines as well as strong beats and rhythms. The style mixture of detroit, britain and german house filled with colourful pictures everytime searches for the one truth hidden between every beat. Tom Bucher & Christos Kessidis, both started Djing and producing in the early respectively the mid 90ies. While Tom startet his career with Michel Niepenberg and Jacek Darnowski under the alias Tojami Sessions, a project that is still alive Christos started solo and released on labels like Exun Records, 8 Bit, Plastic City and Aenaria Music.
With their first mutual album in 2012, including the pre-released singles “Time“ and “Fate“ the team proves its ability to arrange and produce deep-tech-house tracks hitting the zeitgeist absolutely. An enormous depth designs every track while storytelling and functionality stay in the foreground. Now in 2015 we ‘re really excited to listen to their new Album “exit Mexico” with 11 deep’n’housy tracks.
Stay tuned for more tunes from Bucher & Kessidis in 2015!
Lee Burton – Concrete Waves EP (Amam)
Lee Burton returns to the Amam imprint late July with the ‘Concrete Waves’ EP, featuring three original tracks and remixes from Paul Mad and The Magnecian.Greek producer Lefteris Kalabaks aka Lee Burton has been releasing material since 2010 via the likes of Athens based imprint Klik Records, Plastic City and of course Amam where he returns to here following a string of original productions for the label over the past few years. Across the ‘Concrete Waves’ EP Burton delivers his signature striking production style with finesse and an inherently understated quality throughout, kicking things off is ‘Le Coq’ which lays its focus on weighty, low-slung rhythms, swirling dub echoes and wreathing subs. Up next is ‘Kepler’ which tips the focus over a deeper, more refined palette of sound with soft ethereal textures, shuffling drums and pulsating bass tones, Hungarian producer Paul Mad’s take on ‘Kepler’ follows and reshapes the original number into a raw, stripped-back cut solely focused on modulating percussion
Archie Hamilton – Works On Sunday EP (Fuse London)
Archie Hamilton unleashes the ‘Works On Sunday EP’ on Fuse London, kicking off with ‘Mind Blank’ – a kinetic slice of pure peak time goodness, the track kicks into a high gear right from the start with rolling percussion leading to the bass line which serves as the grooves motif. The EPs vinyl only track ‘Works On Sunday’ switches gear, delving into deeper, headier territory with a more melodic leaning, an ethereal vocal snippet imbuing proceedings with a blissful feel whilst label staples Enzo Siragusa and Seb Zito take ‘Works on Sunday’ into a techier direction, toughening up the drums and roughing up the percussion on their remix.
Luca Bacchetti – Amazon (Endless)
Continually pushing back the boundaries of his comfort zone, Luca Bacchetti has always encouraged us to expect changes of direction and scene. Following last year’s acclaimed OVO EP he now releases AMAZON, his new single, once more full of surprises. Taking its cue from a memorable gig at the Lost Beach in Montañita, Equador it stands as an iconic symbol and, in this case, a tribute to the South American Continent. An incredible musical voyage spanning mystical, electronic and dreamlike dimensions which, like so much of his output, are inspired by and rooted in nature.
Crazy Sonic – Cuts / Assassin (Tronic)
Next up on Tronic release number 183 is a double tracker from Crazy Sonic consisting of two powerful groovers. First track “Cuts” is a euphoric one, solid drum work, steel pipe hits and a feeling of bohemia which blends in with metallic stabs and a airy melody to complete it and the second track “Assassin” is a burner with a hypnotic glacial melodic game to keep your mind locked till the end. Truly honest and into the point release!
