Guilherme Sawaya, Ezequiel Iensen and Jhonatan Jacobs: Concept Records founders.
Melodic techno has taken the world and is now one of the most played electronic music subgenres.
It is difficult to make a statement of when exactly a new trend arises, but it can be said that around 2017 there were some releases that fit perfectly in what we call today Melodic Techno. To make it official, so to speak, the new nomenclature was added to Beatport genres in 2018 as Melodic House And Techno, thus leading to the globalization of the expression. Among its most well-known artists are Tale Of Us, Recondite and Stephan Bodzin.
If the number of melodic techno fans grows all over the world, the phenomenon also follows with DJs, music producers and labels. Recently EZEK, based in Brazil and the duo E: CHOES, based in the U.S., have teamed up to create Concept Records with a common goal: to promote this new generation of melodic techno artists. Starting with a VA as featured recently on DJ Mag Brasil, and DJ Mag Latinoamerica.
For the label’s first release, its founders and curators have chosen to showcase label’s full music identity. EZEK and E:CHOES, collaborate on “The Silence” and other participating artists are Cruxs, Emanate, Far From Home, Fran Lezaun, Joël Martina, Le BrIon, Hoppus, Kater Unser, Øntold, Revenänt, Soul alchemist, Umbo, Vrantique and Zaria.
