  • Ondrej - Argentina 2014

Ondrej, KUMQUAT records’ Dad, decided to leave his studio and travel to the land where most of our productions comes from: the land of gauchos, the Argentinian pampas and particularly the land of “culiaus” of Cordoba!
Cordoba is the second largest city of this great country, It was one of the first Spanish colonial capitals of the region that is now Argentina. The National University of Córdoba is the oldest university of the country and the second to be inaugurated in Latin America and her so famous Jesuit block monuments were declared in 2000 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

This exciting capital, surrounded by beautiful mountains and lakes, is one of the most important financial districts in South America, a main touristic destination and a versatile industrial base. Also her strong cultural identity counts with renowned talents in art, theatre and music where a very authentic electronic scene was born since the 90s.

With the purpose of consolidating the last releases such as Gurtz – Am/PM Ep, Oswld – Youngplanet Ep. Ondrej will meet the local scene and headhunt the latest sound!
Moreover we have the pleasure to announce that for the first time, of our label history, Cordoba will be represented in the upcoming release with a masterpiece of Brandub & Andres Gonzalez !

Time for Fernet and Cola, for “asados” and friends ! Good luck Ondrej, ché culiau!

Mike Shannon


Any historian who takes it upon themselves to pen the tale of Canadian electronic in the years to come will most certainly find the name Mike Shannon figures early and often in it’s telling. From his humble beginnings in the sleepy suburban town of Kitchener Ontario, the last 15 years have seen him become an internationally lauded producer with albums on 3 of the industry’s most respected labels (Plus 8, Force Inc, ~Scape), as well as a steady stream of consistently charted singles and remixes.


A true “DJ’s DJ”, he has won legions of fans and the respect of his peers alike for his deep crates and lightning fast mixing skills. And while some may suggest he has gravitated towards smoother, deeper selections as the years go by, those in the know will tell you he has few equals when it comes to whipping dance floors into a relentless techno frenzy should you catch him on a night with that mischievous twinkle in his eye.


Those fortunate enough to catch one of Mike’s rare live performances are encouraged to do so with an open mind, as it is in this context that the breadth of his creativity truly shines. From the shuffling house and techno of his solo performances to the narcotic jazz of his new Blue Fields project alongside singer Fadila and guitarist Takeshi Nishimoto, his is a musical vision which easily wriggles free of the usual genre signifiers and pays grand dividends to those with the good sense to get nice and close to the speakers; the devil is most certainly in the details as the old saying goes.


Yet beyond all of this, perhaps his greatest achievement has been his unfailing support of the music and people he loves. As head A&R and damn near everything else of Cynosure and formerly Revolver Canada Recordings (alongside Jeff Milligan) for over 10 years, Mike has shown an uncanny ability to select and release tracks which have become go-to fixtures in the sets of the industry’s best DJs, as well as introducing the world to the work of some of his nearest and dearest before anyone knew their names (Akufen, Deadbeat, Ernesto Ferrerya). Far from pursuing the next one hit wonder or sound of the season, his steadfast curatorial vision and passion for the music have earned him the trust of discerning music connoisseurs the world over.


Mike Shannon lives and works in Berlin.








For a good decade now has been Gonzalo Urtizberea (a.k.a. Gurtz) incarnating his creative potential into diverse beeps, bleeps, twists and tweaks. Having evolved from classical music studies to the world famous electronic music producer/dj.


In the recent years he rocked best dancefloors and festivals of Europe and Both Americas (Watergate, Weekend or Bar25/Berlin, Fuse/Brussels, Moog/Barcelona, Nouveau Casino/Paris, Arma17/Moscow, Toy Club/Stuttgart, Hive/Zurich, Avalon/Los Angeles, Overground Festival/Geneva, Mutek/Arg or Minitek Festival/NYC) and has been releasing his tracks on well-known labels, such as Einmaleins, Lomidhigh, Igloo,Liga Elektronika,Recovery Tech or Telegraph, to name a few.


Creative and collaborative, he has remixed and been remixed by such techno stars as Bruno Pronsato, Dandy Jack, Ryan Crosson, Mark Henning, Seph, Dapayk, Ambivalent, Franco Cinelli, Agaric, Dilo, Funzion, etc, and his bright live performances have gained the artist passionate affection everywhere from his home land Argentina all the way to Eastern Europe.


Within his most recent project under the aliases of Gonzales, he ventured off towards eclectic synergy of rhythmic twisted house with thoughtful and eternal epic melodies.


As a talented and versatile artist, is not only mixing, creating his own music, but also supporting and promoting other producers and kinds of electronic music and multimedia media art, not necessarily tied to the dance floor, throughout his own net label www.naturalmedia.com.ar.

Podcast with Tolis Q (Athens)






Few people in the world can actually claim title of DJ, producer/remixer, artist, label owner/entrepreneur and party-maker all in one breath . . . and even fewer can master all of these roles at the same time . . . Tolis Q of Athens, Greece has done just that meanwhile having established himself as one of the industry’s most distinguished and hardest working individuals around the world.
Born as Apostolis Palantzas, presently known as “Tolis” who’s first love for music is transparent through his devotion to his calling; the reward comes in the shape of success having produced and signed tracks through his label Quantized music which have been supported by some of the world’s cream of the crop.
Tolis knows his way around music. He knows the craft of selection. He knows what he likes and what feels on the dance floor and translates that into his everything he does with music  albeit DJ sets, with the Quantized label, or the sounds he’s using in his next release.  

Regarded all over Greece for DJ sets bursting with euphoria, style and attitude, always unleashing his potential with powerful dance floor sessions that serve as both unique and unforgettable experiences.  

With a full discography of productions, collaboration projects and remixes to his credit, Tolis’ brand of sound delivers sultry grooves, pulsing deep baselines, and intensely energetic tracks that work magnificently in the hands of DJs as well as big sound systems to the swankiest of lounges all over the globe. Tolis early productions and remix work caught industry eyes and ears – a remix for infamous such as Jim Rivers was signed on the Global Underground label (famous for it’s predominance at the helm of the 90’s dance music explosion). Along with other remixes and collaboration projects that found their way into the catalogues of some of today’s most noted labels signed onto emerging labels such as Rebirth, ACDC, Presslab and Kumquat Tunes.



// The Label //

In late 2007, Tolis and his partner Alex [Lex (Athens)] founded Quantized music – both a label and platform that’s now transpiring as one of the most solid forthcoming imprints on the market.
Quantized serves as an outlet for Tolis’ own productions and showcases some of the hottest fresh producers on underground dance music scene that has
undoubtedly built a name of high-caliber under Tolis’ expertise.



// The Future //

Ambition and passion makes everything he’s accomplished thus far, the starting point for the next step. Tolis humbly accepts his appointed role for leading a pack of talent in the underground scene.
Heading into 2014 the momentum that’s already been simmering is showing no signs of stopping. With a commitment to stay true to his love for the music, and a push for the future, the best of Tolis Q is still yet to come . . . – J. Hill, The Writing Studio NYC ©2013
