Local Records - Label not Label
After 15 years in which the Romanian electronic music scene evolvedin attitude and artistic awareness, a critical mass of producers tookshape, from which new values can grow. Until now, the majority of themhave been working by themselves and sharing their music only in smallcircles. The public is not aware of their existence and does notperceive them as an artistic movement of any kind. This lack ofcommunication and perspectives (the chance to be heard by a biggeraudience, to have local and international success, to be appreciated, supported and promoted) discourages any future producers that arethinking to choose this direction.
Local Records appears in this context, a promoting platform thatwants to create an artistic community of mutual interests and todiscover new Romanian sound by encouraging producers which currentlydon’t have the stimuli to persevere and show their true potential. TheRomanian scene is young and fresh. It has lived its childhood and juststarted its creative adolescence. Native producers found their proximalgenre and are already expressing their specific differences – this isthe road to originality and authenticity. They integrate theirenvironment and personal history into their work. In local conditions, they manage to create an authentic sound based on global considerations. We’re not trying to theorize it, we are underlining its emergence.
