KRAKE is an annual Berlin based festival for challenging electronic music. Krake means octopus and the festival is organised in a comparable way: reaching out to selected locations during one week present- ing the best in electronic music, whatever style it is. The festival is not huge, not expensive, does not have big sponsoring deals or four different colour area passes.
It’s just a good and so far successful try to bring back the focus on artists who dare to step off the beaten tracks. Starting off a label that followed the idea of the festival was only a matter of time for us.
So now it’s done. Here we go with the first release!
Krake 001 is a CD/LP compilation that features tracks by artists who played in 2012 for us. A few of them have been released on other labels before, but the bigger part of the material is exclusive. Some of the tracks were even recorded live at our festival.
Come on, drown with us!
