On the occasion of 15 years of Staubgold in 2013, French DJ and musician Sylvain Garcia aka Le K presents the latest entry in the acclaimed Plays Staubgold series. On the beautifully-crafted Le Petit Bonheur, Sylvain Garcia mixes the finest moments in 15 years of Staubgold to a challenging and totally genre-crossing whole which leads to musical territories yet unknown to their listeners. Staubgold's roster can boast internationally known names like The Flying Lizards, Faust, To Rococo Rot, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Ekkehard Ehlers, Leafcutter John, Patrick Vian, and the 49 Americans. In 2003, the label shifted its base from Cologne to Berlin and moved further to Perpignan in France in 2011. The front cover image was taken by Perpignan-based photographer Alexandre Cappi at the city's number one live venue and record shop, l'Ubu/Music Action. Hailing from South of France, Perpignan, Sylvain Garcia exemplifies the curveball of today's electronic music specialists and accomplished musicians. His breakthrough was primarily due to the underground minimal house Paris scene (Circus Company and Karat) who cheerfully welcomed his productions in 2006. In autumn of the same year, he was selected to attend the Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne Australia, a platform for up-and-coming talents, invited over the course of a few weeks to perfect their studio technique and meet professionals. Since then, as a musician/producer/DJ, he has performed with his avant-garde house and techno project Le K in many prestigious clubs and festivals around the world, and has released dance music-oriented records on esteemed labels. Other artists include: Adrian Sherwood + Doug Wimbish, Hans Joachim Irmler, Mapstation, AGF, Boris Hegenbart & Martin Brandlmayr, General Strike, Trapist, Embryonnck, Sun, Reuber, Klangwart, Sack & Blumm, Reuber, Groupshow, Telebossa, Yasuaki Shimizu & David Cunningham, Strings Of Consciousness, and Jasmina Maschina.
