In 1991 shortly after Tresor Club opened its underground doors, the club founders decided to bring some of the new sounds coming out of Detroit to Berlin and along with German innovators in the genre, founded the club’s own record label – Tresor Records. Now 26 years later our label continues to be as prolific as ever, and just as daring and cutting-edge in the pursuit of electronic music frontiers. In order to remain in the fold and maintain the strength of the genre, new and progressive talent is the key, and the releases over the last few years have reflected the determined influx of creativity from outstanding international artists. Some of these newer trailblazers as well as veteran label family members are here to celebrate 26 years of Tresor Records tonight, and those who know their releases, will confirm their importance to the label and to the world of house and techno itself: techno legend/godfather Juan Atkins makes a special appearance for the celebration, sharing the decks with Moritz von Oswald of Basic Channel fame; and the night is given tough support with power sets by our basement residents Mareena and HGR. Thomas Fehlman from The Orb will turn the Globus Floor into a sound cathedral of electronic bliss for the celebration; very exciting Dutch techno artist Delta Funktionen returns to our home; René Löwe (½ of the legendary techno outfit Scion); and frequent Tresor Club artist Ron Wilson.
Happy Birthday Tresor Records!
