The Contexterrior label is based In Berlin and it was born when TuningSpork Records ringleader Jay Haze relocated to Europe from America. Contexterrior's goal is to bring sub-bass, click- and glitch-heavy music to your bedroom and to the dancefloor. The sounds heard are a bit darker, with use of field recordings, unusual sequences, and an experimental attitude.

It’s difficult to summarize Jay Haze’s ten-year musical career, but in concentrated form: producer, DJ and record label owner. Whether working in the studio or behind the decks in the club, he is a pro at getting people to react. Jay left Philadelphia in the early 00s and is now based in Berlin, also home of his house/techno record labels TuningSpork and Contexterrior. He DJs several times per year in the city’s famed Watergate club, and also holds a quarterly residency at Fabric, London – in addition to his stops throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America.

Starting with his debut full-length Love for a Strange World (Kitty-Yo, 2005) and continuing with Love & Beyond (TuningSpork, 2008), Jay stepped outside of dance music into other realms such as pop, hip-hop and dubstep. His adventurous mix compilation Fabric47 (2009) brought immense praise, and it also launched his new campaign DJs for DRC to help victims in the war-torn Congo: he donated all his money from the CD sales toward the charity Merlin, and having encouraged a number of other DJs to donate money from gigs, aims to travel to the Congo to shoot a documentary and raise awareness. Still active on the music front, of course, Jay has just released the second Fuckpony album and has been focusing on crafting new sounds for other vocalists.

Contexterrior is a label geared at bringing sub bass, click and glitch heavy music to your bedroom and the dancefloor. The sounds you will hear on this label are a Bit darker sometimes, with much field recording and unusual sequences.

This label is about sparseness and love for the click! It is sexy and psychedelic to no end, and incorporates influences from just about everything. You will hear subtle dub influences echoing throughout, being smashed with deep reverbs and odd rhythm's that make you feel quirky, and sometimes uncomfortable (depends on your personality). Always heavy on the bass.

Contexterroir’s first several releases comprised mostly material from Jay himself, but soon many of Jay's influences, contemporaries, and followers joined the crew, such as Jeff Samuel, Ricardo Villalobos, Robag Wruhme, and Inxec. Whether it's a peak-time workout track heard in the club, or a subtle minimal composition heard on headphones, Contexterrior's output will take you to a different mental plane with its sexy.
