Dskonnect Raxon no_ip

Dskonnect celebrates 20 years in style with the release of DSK RECORDS, a new label full of EPs

When a business builds up years of experience in the music industry, it has the ability to diversify into other areas to take its brand to the next level. This is the case of Dskonnect, that after two decades of success in booking has decided to go up to another level with the birth of DSK Records, its new record label that has already released its first reference. 

The agency, with its origins in Valencia but based in Barcelona, has transformed its 20 years of knowledge with artists such as Oxia, Andhim, Maceo Plex, Giorgia Angiuli or Fedele into a new proposal that will offer us a broader vision of DSKonnect’s work. Its contribution to the scene in the form of a label has been kicked off by Raxon and no_ip, two of its trusted artists. 

DSK001 opens with a first reference, under the name of ‘The Fall’, which reveals the most hypnotic side of Egyptian Raxon, where groove and melodic seduction become the main attractions. It is followed by ‘My Place’, a synthesized piece where the national talent of Catalan no_ip takes control, and whose distorted vocals add a digital touch that will make you want to dance to this track until dawn.  Long live DSK Records! 

Damon Jee and Gardens Of God bring DSK Records’ second release to life 

After leaving us yearning for more with their recent debut EP by Raxon and no_ip, DSK Records is back with a new release that blends the best of French Damon Jee and Lithuanian Gardens Of God. 

The result, DSK002, transcends the limits we tend to put on each genre. The first side of the EP by Damon Jee, titled ‘Afterhour’, reveals a more progressive side of techno with bold acid lines intertwined with melody and distorted vocals. An enveloping track, surprisingly powerful at times, that leaves a sense of “brutal delicacy” in the listener. 

The EP continues with ‘Infinity’ and Gardens Of God at the controls, which unlike its predecessor gives us a reflective and timeless vision, creating a place where time and space are fluid and everything is possible. A track that shows us the infinity, never better said, of possibilities that electronic music is capable of creating, always without leaving aside the musical quality and the connection with the listener. 

Fancy experiencing the essence of DSK live? Damon Jee and no_ip will be playing at the “Dskonnect stage” of the Brunch Electronik in Barcelona at the Estrella Damm Factory on April 30th. But if you’re more into enjoying music at home, in this article you’ll find all the upcoming releases that DSK Records has to unveil.

Experience and avant-garde in ‘Yume no yōna’, the new release by Marc Romboy and Timo Maas

The record saga continues at DSK Records, and with each release, a new musical adventure that opens the doors to the infinite spectrum of electronic music. So infinite, that it evolves at the same time as technology and brings to light tracks such as ‘Yume no yōna‘, the latest release by Marc Romboy and Timo Maas.

The backbone of this track is artificial intelligence, as it includes a vocal sample created entirely by this trendy tool, achieved through the application of a Japanese voice-to-word converter. The synthesised Japanese female voice adds a unique element to the track, taking this second collaboration from the expert duo to another level.

‘Yume no yōna’ shows us the more exotic and versatile side of Marc and Timo, who wanted to delight us with ‘dub‘ and ‘synthapella‘ versions of the full production. The potential of AI in music has not yet been fully explored, but the fact that two masters like them have opted to use it, it looks like an exciting and undiscovered musical horizon. What’s next?

AFFKT and Giorgia Angiuli deliver the ultimate melodic twist in the ongoing DSK Records saga with ‘Gaman’ and ‘Pray’.

A fine, carefully crafted melody can become the focus of a song, even more powerful than the distinctive drops in electronic music releases. DSK004 exemplifies this concept, as AFFKT and Giorgia Angiuli take center stage, revealing the most emotional side of DSK Records.

Within this latest release from DSKonnect, we find a pair of tracks by two production experts who have been enhancing the scene for years. First, we have AFFKT, the Spanish maestro, offering us ‘Gaman’ – a meticulously constructed and yet laid-back track, capable of captivating even the most discerning listener. Prepare to dive on a journey of sensory exploration through music!

The DSK004 saga continues with the input of the dynamic talent of Giorgia Angiuli, whose live sets continue to make waves worldwide. Now, she contributes her skills to DSK Records with ‘Pray’ – an euphoric masterpiece crafted from progressive rhythms and ethereal vocals, showcasing the studio power of the Italian artist.With this release, the Catalan label adds another gem to its collection, affirming its potential across diverse areas of the industry. Brace yourself for more inspiring creations from DSK Records, are you ready to witness their offerings?

Shall Ocin, GusGus and Birnir treat us to a summer soundtrack on DSK Records

Summer is all about holidays, but only for a lucky few. At DSK Records they don’t stop working as the summer season is celebrated with what they do best: music. This July 14, they will be doing so with three exotic names like Shall Ocin, GusGus and Birnir captaining the productions.

The A-side of this new musical journey is presented by Shall Ocin from Argentina with ‘Growling’.
