Thomas Melchior is no doubt one of the key artists to come out on the label. He remains a legendary name in the industry and would be for years to come. From Germany to the US, Spain and finally the UK Melchior has always championed underground sound and his music has without a doubt shaped tastes and creativity of many artists on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond.

Nowadays, Melchior continues to surprise the audience worldwide with his genre bending sounds and cutting edge performances.
With a musical career spanning over 15 years, Fumiya Tanaka is renowned as a true artist of his genre. Tanaka’s performances and productions have gone from strength to strength, earning him respect of industry professionals and techno lovers worldwide. Recently the artist has been working on the live unit, “DARTRIIX” with RADIQ aka Yoshihiro HANNO and has already released two EPs and a full length album on Op.Sisc as well as numerous Perlon releases. Nowadays Tanaka is about to start a new label called “Sundance” and it is scheduled to be launched very soon. Look out for some fresh tunes and all time underground classics in his technical yet soulful sets which take minimal techno to a new level.
