Quarterlife Records NYC is a New York City-based independent record label. Quarterlife Records focuses on finding, releasing and pushing a distinct spectrum of sounds from the dance music underground - on one end, the pounding beats of tough, gritty in-your-face electro house music… on the other end, the smooth, sophisticated, intelligent polished beats of deep progressive house… and the narrow niche in between.
Quarterlife Records seeks to innovate the genre and challenge listeners with non-formulaic approaches to house music, to provide a platform for emerging artists to be heard, and to serve as a vehicle to propel established artists further up the charts. The common denominator between releases is the quality of production, attention to detail, and adherence to the aesthetic that Quarterlife embodies – the bangin’ electro sound of underground New York City that makes ‘em throw their hands up.
The label’s logo activates the concept: the universal power symbol, tilted to form a “Q”, symbolizing the energy that’s captured in its edgy music. Aside from its prolific releases, the label also focuses its energy into the parties that it produces or endorses in the New York City club scene and around the world.
Quarterlife Records digital releases can be purchased from the world’s finest digital retailers including Beatport, iTunes, eMusic, Dance Tracks Digital, Amazon.com, Rhapsody, Napster, Juno, and so forth. For a full list of retailers, click here.
