After 15 years in which the Romanian electronic music scene evolved in attitude and artistic awareness, a critical mass of producers took shape, from which new values can grow. Until now, the majority of them have been working by themselves and sharing their music only in small circles. The public is not aware of their existence and does not perceive them as an artistic movement of any kind. This lack of communication and perspectives (the chance to be heard by a bigger audience, to have local and international success, to be appreciated, supported and promoted) discourages any future producers that are thinking to choose this direction.
Local Records appears in this context, a promoting platform that wants to create an artistic community of mutual interests and to discover new Romanian sound by encouraging producers which currently don’t have the stimuli to persevere and show their true potential. The Romanian scene is young and fresh. It has lived its childhood and just started its creative adolescence. Native producers found their proximal genre and are already expressing their specific differences – this is the road to originality and authenticity. They integrate their environment and personal history into their work. In local conditions, they manage to create an authentic sound based on global considerations. We’re not trying to theorize it, we are underlining its emergence.
