Syndikaat Records represents the Techno label from the Netherlands, founded in 2005. The dutch imprint is owned Bas Mooy and distributed by Triple Vision Record Distribution and Neuton.
During the last decade Rotterdam home-based dj/producer Bas Mooy (1976) has been active on many fronts in the techno scene. Heavily influenced by a city that breaths industrial strength twenty-four-seven, he gradually found his way into creating an unique dark sound, which lead him to the forefront of the European techno scene. In an industry where following trends seems to be the core business these days, he gained a lot of respect for staying true to his own sound.
In 2002 he kickstarted the already legendaryAudio Assault recordlabel with label partner Jeroen Liebregts, which resulted in the birth of sublabel Arms one year later. Since then theAudio Assault family built a strong and constantly growing fan-base worldwide, showcasing an impressive catalogue with a constant output of stand out twelve inches, setting the standard for today's quality dark techno.
Over the years Bas has been a hard working and devoted producer, spending many hours in the studio and putting out music on respected labels such as Planet Rhythm, Fine Audio Recordings,Submissions, Patterns, FK Recordings and of course his own imprints Audio Assault and Arms. Currently working on a solo album, which is due to be released early 2009, and upcoming releases on several well known labels, he shows no sign of slowing down.
For many years he has been a member of the Rotterdam underground collective 'Strictly Techno', creators of over a hundred legendary parties since 1995 and hosting a monthly evening at Bootleg since 2001, providing a stage for a well balanced mix of upcoming talent and established names since the start.
In Holland Bas has played at many 'top of the bill' clubs such as Doornroosje, De Effenaar, Waterfront, Simplon and is a regular guest at the highly respected Awakenings parties. Besides that he has performed at many clubs and festivals around the globe, in countries such as Spain, Belgium, Sweden, Hungary, Poland, Austria, Malta, Scotland, United States, Ireland, Ukraine, Slovakia, Croatia, United Kingdom and Germany.
The Syndikaat Records Label includes material from Tony Rohr, Secret Cinema, Hardcell & Grindvik, Eidolon and Agaric.
