ADE Sound Lab continues with How To Start A Record Label

Thursday, 15 August 2019
The ADE Sound Lab 2019 program is shaping up nicely, and the latest confirmation for a How to Start a Record Label session adds three fascinating speakers. Following spots from the likes of R&S and Mau5trap last year, this time Elena Colombi, Marco Faraone, Nastia and Sander van Doorn will share their combined insight on Thursday, October 17th.

After recent news about ADE University introducing Cocoon and Oliver Heldens taking over Paradiso we continue with ADE Sound Lab and their newest panel talk on How To Start A Record Label.

From Italy via the UK to Amsterdam, Elena Colombi has built a fair reputation for her distinct record collection and skill to connect strange and unique sounds. With her NTS Radio shows and club sets she marks out a personal vision using a most diverse set of records. Her new label is fittingly named Osàre! Editions - “Osàre” translating from Italian as “daring” or “bold”. The imprint is a new enterprise, but this one will be a worthy discussion for anyone interested in life outside the standard categories of clubland music. Making something as exploratory and individualist as Osàre! Editions work in the modern world of information overload is a big challenge and requires extreme focus and vision. The lessons Colombi has learned already will be vital to understanding this new landscape.

Florentine DJ and producer Marco Faraone will be familiar to many techno fans, having released on a long list of labels: Drumcode, Rekids, Ovum, Be As One, Sci+Tec, Desolat, All inn records, Holic Trax, Get Physical and Truesoul. But thanks to Marco's years of accumulated knowledge, his own UNCAGE label has released the likes of Radio Slave, Skudge, Markus Suckut, Nick Hoppner and more. There's an interesting insight behind how Faraone juggles the needs of the label with his own career.

The Ukrainian Nastia has risen steadily in the global league in the decade that she's been DJing internationally, and her Propaganda label has been a big part of how she maintains her sonic coherence and musical connections. It's a great example of a modern, vinyl-only boutique label, with its low-key, brooding techno sound binding together established names and new discoveries into its own distinct identity. This is a chance to look into the inner workings of Nastia's career and find out how she balances big demands and a high-speed DJ career while keeping her label identity clear and focused over the years.

Date: Thursday, October 17th
