frozen border



Frozen Border is a record label and each 12″ is done by a different producer; aside from that, we don't know many details. Their preference for anonymity and austere packaging hark back to the days of 90s techno, and it should come as little surprise the music does as well. Rather than rehashing the past, however, Frozen Border records leap from their 90′s reference points into the contemporary techno scene, resulting in fresh and forward-thinking productions.
ground horizontal It’s heartening to see that over the past couple of years there has been a resurgence of anonymous techno white labels surfacing.

The hand stamped imprints recall a time when techno was still mysterious, when you could spend months hounding after a track and feel unabated joy if you got to play it out, only to have hapless trainspotters become derailed when they approached a blank label. These days techno (and for that matter all music) is nowhere near as mysterious or as hard to track down as it used to be, but the steady filter of white labels emerging of late inject some element of surprise and curiosity back into the medium. Horizontal Ground, the companion label to Frozen Border, which itself has been responsible for three quick bursts of fearless techno, is now up to its second release of tracky tool time techno, the latest edition being even more bare and desolate than the first. Its incognito producer will keep the guessing game going and while some may argue that the anonymity of the minimal info tactic is geared toward building hype, the reality is that it manufactures a lot more focus on the music itself.

Since launching in 2009, Frozen Border has positioned itself at the vanguard of a healthy revival of UK techno. It has maintained the time honoured tradition of faceless techno, putting out records in white, hand stamped inner sleeves with no information regarding the artists.

The imprint has already spawned two sub-labels, Horizontal Ground and Naked Index, which have adopted a more open policy when it comes to artist identity, with Mancunian types Szare and AnD, Adam Rivet and former Juno Plus podcaster DJ Skirt among those putting out records on the two offshoot labels.
