One year of Envloop Records: A reason to celebrate for us, but also an opportunity to thank you, our audience. Since Envloop began, we have come a long way, having built up the label as a haven for artists from around the globe and for electronic tunes from all different styles and genres. Artists such as TC Izlam, Soul Slinger, I-Cue, Kooky, Frozen Smoke, just to name a few… Envloop stays true to it’s basic concept to be open not only to top artists, but also to encourage musical experiments. The 2000’s, so we were told, would only leave space for labels strictly specialized in their specific genres. We chose a different path: Tracks and artists from across the spectrum of genres, just as it was when electronic music imprints first started. The only standard across the label’s releases is the high quality.
A trip through time and space: In 1996 US-Drum&Bass legend Soul Slinger together with Supa MC TC Izlam (aka T-Frequency To The Love Degree) released “Zulu Music Pt.1 and 2” on his legendary label “Jungle Sky Records”, having been a platform for so many artists who made their ways into the world´s artist-elite such as A Guy Called Gerald, Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Spooky and Air Liquide, just to name a few. On envloop 005 “Zulu Music 2011 EP” this true jewel of New Yorican Underground found it´s way into the present decade, given a treatment by it´s creator Soul Slinger and Austrian artist Hillberg. What had been anticipating “Dubstep” decades before this genre was born, now comes along as a trippy Hip Hop tune reminiscent of the sound of Stereo MC´s or Gary Clail.
Music video for Mightiness – Extra Protected EP; track will be released under envloop records on the 20th of May. It’s a take on the world full of fear and noble lies where everybody is looking for protection and is getting it through their beliefs and signs they trust. Ending up in a senseless clash between good and evil. The Sun is good and protecting us while Mikey Moose, under the command of Great Pagan himself, is leading the underworld…
Under the influence of his Techno-experiences DJ Mightiness started as a Drum&Bass DJ in 1998 after his interest had been drawn to D&B via Techstep. In his sets you can hear his origin based in Bremen, Germany, his style is the same hard, bassy and twisted. His personal favourites are Andy C., Brookie and Ram Rec., and you always can find him also on a Panacea-party. Aside from D&B he listens to chilly and phatt Hip Hop with meaningful texts, Amin Tobin and of course everxthing from Drum&Bass. Aside from his DJ career he studies law and loves skateboarding and snowboarding. To say it in the words of our “Dr. Envloop”: “It is about the moment, when energies and emotions are getting packed into a tunes of mine, when they “explode” in a musical way… in this way music for me is the way to speal a clear and true […]
