BACKGROUND RECORDS (GERMANY) 5 Titles
Düsseldorf-based Background Records was established by Andy Vaz in 1995 as an imprint specializing in minimal techno, but the label's music, especially its current fare, transcends whatever stereotypical associations such limiting terms engender. Just as Perlon's microhouse is often more maximal than minimal, so too are Background Records' releases richly layered, compositionally detailed, and increasingly pan-global. In addition, the label's gaze is firmly directed towards the future, as its comp series Futuristic Experiments illustrates in name and action. Since its inception, the label has evolved stylistically, inspired initially by Detroit's techno innovators, but in the years following has expanded its vision and pursued delineable -- if at times unpredictable -- trajectories. The label broadened its catalog beyond Germany and the U.S. and today reaches out to Africa, Australia and Canada. Background is more artistically vital today than ever before, as its releases are becoming ever more sophisticated as a result of advances in digital production methodologies. Plus, they're deeper sonically as broader stylistic areas and musical traditions are explored by its current roster.
