In the last decade one little DIY label from Berlin managed it to survive all ups and downs of the music industry. It’s name is SINNBUS and if you’re not familiar with them, feel invited to get to know them better. Being still around in 2013 is pretty extraordinary for a little independent label – formed in the year 2003 by members of various different bands (for example SDNMT, DELBO and KATE MOSH) in Berlin. So what’s SINNBUS‘ special skills? One for a start would be that it was formed by chummy musicians and not pretentious media people

The label started with about thirty members – now there are only around ten left. Well, the course of the music industry remains a strange one but this number might be correct for such a little label. And there is another pretty special thing about the DIY firm: all signed bands are friends of the founders or friend’s recommendations. They never found one single band via demo-tapes. So don’t mind sending them files… probably. Or maybe do so. You’ll never know.

Over the years the label became quite flexible in terms of musical genres for their little love project. It all started with post-rock but now they just require soulful music and passionate musicians. From the three electropo guys of BODI BILL, to the soulful duo HUNDREDS from Hamburg and the Swedish post-rockers AUDREY. There is a wide range of bands to discover. They might not have ‘that one special big band’ in their roster but that’s basically how they wanted it to be. And sometimes growth is not the only answer for a company. Integrity and dignity might be others. You won’t find many institutions like SINNBUS nowadays. They’ve got a specific spirit – the spirit to remain friends and music lovers, not only collegues. They managed to mix work and private life without getting eaten alive.

Recently, BODI BILL‘s album Two In One has been released in France, the UK and the Benelux. And a special tour through selected other countries is also planned.

But first of all it’s time to celebrate SINNBUS‘ tenth anniversary right in their home country. This happens in form of a unique festival, the Ten Years Sinnbus Rec Festival - of course presented by NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION. Terrific bands like THE/DAS, HUNDREDS, UNMAP, RUE ROYALE and LA BOUM FATALE will perform in different cities to do SINNBUS the honour.

Over the years Sinnbus developed from representing a local Berlin scene to a well known label in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and has earned a high reputation for its high quality releases, design and cover-art. Sinnbus now serves as a label, music publisher and occasional concert promoter. The style of music released by Sinnbus varies from post-rock, post-punk to indie and electronica.
