Described as a platform to enhance and promote today’s music scene with no genre frontier, highlighting a wide musical spectrum, not necessarily by always issuing banging dancefloor tracks, but by carefully selecting emotive electronica.

So far, the label released vinyl only productions of DaRand Land, José Rico, Leonid, Derek Carr, Marvin Dash and the upcoming EP from Modex this September 2019.
