Hailing from Berlin, Germany, Herrensauna have officially matured into a label, to keep expressing their truly and unique vision in the beautiful world of underground techno music. That’s right, the Berlin queer collective Herrensauna will launch a record label with a series of vinyl EPs.
This label sounds represents a range of impressive beats accompanied with monotonous rhythms that adapt to any progressive and energetic environment.
During the last 5 years Herrensauna has become one of the most esteemed spaces of Berlin’s queer underground. Showcasing a sound between experimental sonics and heavy techno in an open and intimate club setting, the collective has launched some of the most influential artists of the new generation of techno such as residents SPFDJ, Héctor Oaks and co-founders CEM and MCMLXXXV.
With Tresor as their main home in a monthly basis, they have expanded their vision internationally with showcases at clubs around Europe and key appearances on Boiler Room as well as an upcoming Herrensauna Takeover with the 4 residents B2B to close the UFO1 stage of Dekmantel 2021.
Now Herrensauna are set to kick off their record label presenting music by the underground talents they have been supporting in a series of vinyl EPs. The first instalment includes tracks by in-house resident Cadency aka Héctor Oaks, Copenhagen’s Fast Forward member Sugar on the A side, and the duo of Peder Mannerfelt & Pär Grindvik aka Aasthma featuring London’s Dale Cornish as well as Historical Repeater, the collaborative project of Copenhagenbased producers Ctrls and Solid Blake, on the B side. While on artwork duties is Berlin-via-Porto multidisciplinary artist Mauro Ventura who will create a painting for each release.
Herrensauna will release \’HSN01\’ on October 2nd, 2020. Available for pre-order at bandcamp.
