Elevate Records represents the spanish music label founded in 2012. Techno duo Igor Tchkotoua and Dan Duncan – better known as Pig&Dan – have launched their own label, Elevate.

2012 was an incredibly exciting year in Pig&Dan’s marking the decade milestone in their illustrious partnership. After releasing their critically acclaimed fourth studio album Decade (Soma) the dynamic duo celebrated with numerous Beatport Top 10 hits and even more Top 100 hundred releases during the year. Their amazing flow of monster productions on the world’s top Techno and Tech House labels such as Soma, Bedrock, Cocoon, Suara and Tronic, was usurped in November 2012 when Pig&Dan launched their brand new label ELEVATE.

Their recent productions and remixes for labels like Bedrock, Mesmeric, Soma, Suara and Tronic have been built around dubby, chunky techno and tech-house grooves. A versatile sound that the duo will thoroughly explore with their new imprint.

"We are at a good point as artists, and I think it´s time to try to push a new sound." Duncan tells DJ Mag USA, preparing for the inevitable pun. "The only way is up."

Pig&Dan kick off Elevate in mid-November 2012 with the Savage EP. Savage is an immense melodic roller that really shows where we want to go with this label.

For Duncan, Elevate´s mission is clear. "It´s always come down to consistency, and that´s our aim with the new label. We want to build a name that´s recognizable and holds a quality that we hope people can rely on."

During their journey, Pig&Dan’s profile as in-demand remixers reached the point where electronic pioneers such as Underworld were coming back for more! Since then, they have created a repertoire that not many can match and have constantly been releasing on respected labels and playing at the best events worldwide.

Pig&Dan’s Elevate label is going from strength to strength, with six stunning releases in the first six months of the year, including tracks by Patch Park, MiniCoolBoyz, Broombeck & Felix Krocher, alongside their own huge productions. They are now establishing Elevate parties around the globe, developing a new concept linking the label release and exciting events.
