Amsterdam Techno Sessions x Illegal Alien

The Amsterdam Techno Sessions crew and the Illegal Alien records team joined forces to bring to you a stellar Techno showcase, headlined by the one and only Truncate!

Amsterdam Techno Sessions is a weekly Techno event, held every Thursday, in Amsterdam.
Every week, local and international artists are invited to showcase their work and personal definition of Techno.

Illegal Alien Records is a Mexican record label of Electronic music focused mainly on Techno. Born in 2007 and founded by Ricardo Garduno.

Today the label, which initially started in foreign lands as an individual project, is now based in Mexico and has a digital platform, which has counted the participation of established and upcoming artists. On the other hand, the label has the platform ILLEGAL ALIEN LTD, focused on Vinyl 12, 10 and 7-inch format and the publishing of CD and Cassette editions, up to date with 40 references and a growing catalogue and also the ILLEGAL ALIEN BLACK LABEL platform, whose proposal is characterized by presenting Ambient and a more cinematic sound which is also published on Physical and Digital formats.

It is worth mentioning that during more than 16 years the processes and changes within the label have been diverse. Musicalizing almost two decades means practically facing a generational change and with it, many challenges related to an audiovisual identity. The work has been hard, which has allowed the label to remain current and contribute to the professional growth of the artists who are part of it, because Illegal Alien is the platform that allows them to present their works.
