Courtesy launches new label, Kulør, with Danish techno and trance compilation
"Dance-floor-ready tracks from Copenhagen's most gifted producers"
Breakthrough Copenhagen DJ Courtesy has announced the launch of her new label Kulør, with the first release focussing entirely on local talent.
The debut release on Kulør – which translates to “colourful” in Danish – features 10 club ready cuts from Copenhagen-based producers including Sugar, Schacke, Repro, IBON and more.
Stylistically the compilation – a selection of 10 "Dance-floor-ready tracks from Copenhagen's most gifted producers" – varies from the fast-paced techno of Sugar and the tripped out electro of Repro the the revivalist and inventive trance sounds of IBON and Funeral Future.
"Sonically there's something wild happening in Copenhagen at the moment, and I hope this compilation can act as a point of reference for people to start digging into the magic that these guys are creating," Courtesy wrote on Facebook about the label’s debut release and its artists "They have given me such amazing music to work with, music that I'm honoured to get the chance to release. It's been scary to start something on this scale solo for the first time, but also extremely exciting."
The label is also set to feature a strong visual component, with Courtesy – real name Najaaraq Vestbirk – teaming up with photographer and visual artist Fee-Gloria Groenemeyer for Kulør001’s stunning cover art.
The LP will be released as a triple-vinyl package and on digital formats on 11th October. Listen to the opening track, Schacke’s ‘Automated Lover’, below.
