The story began during a dimmed night very close to dark and purling Spree river in Berlin – directly under the legendary and well known Jannowitz brigde, which connects the southern Luisenstadt (Berlin-Friedrichshain) with Stralauer Viertel (Alexanderstraße) in the north. Right under the brick crafted bridge, Lars Kohl and Linus Elter had the very first spark of an idea, which they implemented to hundreds of technolovers within short time: rearrange your boarders and be authentic!
Since that day, individuality and personality are in the focus of the productions of all labelacts – counting international names such as Khainz, Cosmic Boys, Carlo Ruetz,
Matt Sassari, Betoko, Makism Dark, BOHO or a row of brasilian superstars like Alex Stein, Fractall, Flow & Zeo, Eudi and Andre Gazolla in.
It’s a continuous process and change, who is driving the Jannowitz family to new dimensions. The inner circle of the imprint raises regularly as a phoenix out of the masses, always in focus, not to lose all connections to mainstream landscapes.
Our motto: „We develop groovy techno with a special touch of melodic & minimal madness“ and yes, that’s why we are Jannowitz Records!
The label has received some amazing support from techno pioneers like:
Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Chris Liebing, Alex Stein, Marco Carola and many more.... And dropped some nice Beatport chart hits.
