Audiophiles rejoice! Techno aficionado Roberto is launching a new label that is putting sound quality into the forefront. Fossil Archive will be the DJ’s new home after having released killer singles on Fachwerk, Affin, Artform and Be As One for years,. With his new venture, he’ll be delving into the essence of why so many listeners prefer vinyl.
“I come from a background where most releases were traditionally cut at 45rpm, with one track per side on a 12-inch record,” says Roberto. “The music always sounded great, as it was mastered and cut to its highest potential. Increasingly, these days there seems to be a trend where a lot of labels are squeezing a number of tracks onto each side of a 12-inch record. I want to go against that and make sure the music is presented in the purest way possible by cutting one track per side at 45rpm.”
As awesome as it is to hear tracks on crispy 7-inches, Roberto’s not making the Fossil’s output exclusively about the wax.
“The label will release primarily vinyl, although digital versions will also be available to purchase.”
So, everyone goes home happy. Fossil Archive’s inaugural release, “’Prolecanites Gurleyi” will be out February 23.
