There’s no messing around when it comes to the Drumcode sound. Now enjoying its second decade, the imprint is insurmountable. And under the leadership of its founder Adam Beyer, its all-conquering status isn’t set to wane anytime soon.
Of course its heavyweight and rib-rattling back catalogue wouldn’t exist without a supreme selection of techno royalty like Joseph Capriati, Alan Fitzpatrick, Ben Sims, and Nicole Moudaber.
But everyone has to start somewhere, and Drumcode has kept a keen eye on the future from the beginning.
With a typically frenetic summer schedule commencing in two weeks on UK shores as Drumcode's main players takeover Birmingham’s Chapter XIII Festival, we caught up with the Drumcode team to divulge on the institution's latest recruits.
"Layton has just released his debut album on Drumcode titled Where It Begins. He’s a production wizard from New York and someone who’s got massive potential. We’ve also got more material from Layton in the pipeline, which is a testament to his skill in the studio."
"Originally from Brazil but now based in London, his tracks have been a staple of Adam Beyer’s sets of late and mid-April will see him make his debut on the label. "Walking Shadow" is a prime example of just why Adam Beyer has been supporting his music so heavily."
"Having featured on a track with Coyu on Drumcode late last year, we’ve just signed 4 fantastic tracks from Ramiro Lopez, which will be released on May 15th."
"Everything he touches turns to gold, a prime example of which is his track "Moon Rocks," which is still flying high in the Beatport techno chart, despite coming out in August 2016."
"Marco is an artist who features heavily on both Drumcode and our little brother label Truesoul. His ability to deliver killer remixes is unrivalled and that’s why we rate him so highly."
On Saturday 15th April, Drumcode will be hosting the arena stage at Chapter XIII with Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, Dense & Pika and more to headline. Remaining tickets are available here.
