Dutch duo Artefakt will launch their own imprint, De Stijl, this February with their Far and Wide EP.
Robin Koek and Nick Lapien, who make up Artefakt, have become highly respected for their melancholic take on techno since coming together in 2012, releasing on labels like Deep Sound Channel, Field Records, as well as numerous appearances on Delsin, which played host to their debut album, Kinship. De Stijl aims to deliver a fertile ground for further exploration of their sound, as well as providing a home to affiliated projects and close friends.
The label begins with a versatile four track release called Far and Wide, followed by an outing from Rhine in June entitled Slaapstad, before Cyspe's Unidentify Yourself concludes the year.
“Through curation of both music and the visual aspect we want to provide our audience with a new entry point to our work. We will use the label to explore some elements of our sound in more depth and also feature affiliated projects and organize events within the scope of the label.” — Artefakt
