Respekt Recordings represents the British label based in Leeds, founded by Spektre.
RESPEKT is the label manifestation of the internationally recognised artist duo Spektre. It has been developed as a base for the research and exploration of their sound and to experiment within the new and innovative world of electronic music that we live in today. Derived from an anagram of Spektre, the Respekt label stands for the artists interminable belief in the underground soundtrack that spans the globe, and for the inspiration they gleam from producing, performing, and moving in the circles it revolves in.
As two of the most widely respected techno artists to come out of the UK in recent times, founders Paul Maddox & Richard Wakley have travelled the world in the past three years performing the Spektre LIVE show, to rapturous acclaim. While stealing the show at clubs around the globe, they have been inspired by cultures from every dance floor, and as producers they have released on the crème de la crème of techno's elite labels.
Massive support has come from the likes of techno kings Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Dubfire and Laurent Garnier, while James Zabiela has championed them as his ones to watch and quotes Spektre's productions consist of solid techno that really remembers the rave. Music that is cool but also fun and highly danceable. These guys are just going to get bigger"
The natural progression is their label RESPEKT, with the first release due at the end of November and another three before Spring serving as a build up to their eagerly anticipated debut studio album, due for release in early 2010.
Get ready to be inspired, exhilarated and enthralled. Get prepared for the next instalment and always, Expekt the unexspekted!!!
