Liniar was born in April 2015, with the intention of delivering minimal and house beats on vinyl only. Focused mostly on Romanian producers, but also opened to international talents, its name is a soft allusion to the linear and trippy music that the label promotes, the kind of music that can make one dive into a dreamy state at a party – or afterparty!
A label meant to bring in front new talents with their own approach on electronic music. Step by step and track by track you will embrace the musical story of visionary artists with a great appetite for producing music as a complex message.
Bucharest's electronic scene is surely flourishing these days. New artists, new sounds and, not least, new labels appear almost every day. It was time for old comrades Piticu and Herodot to start one of their own. Unanim is the name they've unanimously chosen to represent them. First come out the sounds of Piticu which are rather techno and aggressive. Herodot will quickly follow.
Concepts always cross various disciplines, especially art wise. Tailored to a well determined structure with a rhythm of four verses, the quatrain, is the idea from which Catren draws it's inspiration. Unfiltered, sincere, emotional frequencies vibrate just the same as poetry did in the old days. Only now it's the cutting edge soundscapes that producers swap with the proverbial poetic wit. Striving to honour the lyrical geniuses that made our world more alive Catren sets a simple goal. Music free to go anywhere and everywhere
One of our new labels is the offspring of dj/producer Adrian Niculae also known as Priku. Feeling the need to express his deepest musical thoughts and also the need to have a place where his sonic legacy can be found, Adrian decided to give this desire and exact address. And that is Motif Records. Expect to hear more of him and also more of what he likes in the near future, here.
Romanian underground outlet aimed at releasing eternal dance music. Based downtown Bucharest, delivering worldwide.
Secret Society Chile
On the beach of Viña del Mar was born a secret society that seeks to find its flow with the great river Bío-Bío.

Not for the typical clubhead searching no more than cheap thrills on the dancefloor. Not for the typical mind dreaming a lifetime experience soaked in strobes and flat basslines.
Out of the ordinary. Abiding no rules. Atipic.
Just as understanding is a psychological process related to an abstract or physical object whereby one is able to think about it and use concepts to deal adequately with that object, Understand.ro is a musical platform based upon the idea that dance music is not only for the dance-floor, dance music can be the subject of a conscious or unconscious process of understanding. May it be house, techno, minimal or whatever genre we can stick our concepts within. Started by Romanian artists Praslea, Cezar and Kozo, Understand sets out to be a platform for intelligent music worldwide, with a predilect for Romanian talent.

What about a world projected only in the mind of the creator? A world imagined with the sole purpose of not obeing the omnipresent sonic and musical intricacies. A world with no boundaries, an infinite ocean of musical shapes and ideas where everything fuses gently into the horizon that spans forever.
This metaphor was the original idea that led Romanian artists Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia to start their Amphia label. A name that makes you think of endless possibilities, music that morphs in ways they can only imagine.
