Founded by the DJ and producer Muck, saint-vitus-records is a label of electronic music established since 2010 in Geneva (Switzerland). The universe of the label is a rich combination of drawings and musical productions. Each release weaves a link throughout the ages and reminds that trance and dancing – in the middle of the techno phenomenon for the past 30 years – have always existed, and that the search for exteriorisation through dancing, the body pleasure in the music, and the access to the extraordinary conscience, has no time. Unlike many labels of which illustration founds an almost decorative function, the drawings are constructed in black and white with simple power relationships like symbols, figures and myths, just like a kind of popular imagery. In fact, Saint Vitus is a historical figure that has actually in the middle Ages. We can find historical traces referring to meetings or groups of people that used to give themselves to dances free of any social convention, in the limits of the shamanistic trance. Terrified by those dancers, the religious invoked Saint Guy (Saint Vitus in Latin) to protect the dancers. With no doubt, these dancers with uncontrollable movements involuntarily absorbed some ergot, which is a mushroom naturally developed within cereals.

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.
