Agile Recordings represents the Italian label founded by Uto Karem launched in 2008. Agile Recordings is a vinyl & digital label, which was created with the intent of promoting and producing quality electronic music involving prominent artists worldwide. Our main concept is to promote & support groove induced, high-energy electronic music, from brilliant, forward thinking artists.
Uto Karem alias Umberto Carmignani is an Italian DJ and producer and the founder of Agile Recordings. Being a DJ, producer, label manager and computer music editor, Uto Karem has a broad vision of what electronic music is all about.
Having spent his junior years in London, Uto's music ear was first shaken by bands such as New Order, Depeche Mode and Soft Cell. On his return to Italy as a teenager, it was Underground Resistance, Novamute and Plus 8 that were having most impact on the young man.
In his late teens his DJ career took off, and over the years he has supported many of the worlds greatest deck talents. As a natural progression he took two years to study Audio Engineering that lead him to develop his own musical style, at the same time he was working as an editor for a computer music magazine, where he was reviewing and testing all the modern technology available for DJ's and producers.
Uto Karem in just a short period of time has produced hit after hit with forward thinking dance tracks that have fast become staples for DJs everywhere. As well as being an in-demand DJ, producer and remixer, he also runs his own Agile Recordings imprint on which he explores deep techno rhythms and highly addictive baselines, from himself and brilliant forward thinking artists.
With his unique trademark Uto Karem has been busy producing groove induced, high-energy tracks for legendary labels, with the ability to infuse cutting edge machine music and soulful grooves.
Agile Records has developed in the last years an impressive back catalogue containing releases and collaboration from acts such as: Rino Cerrone, Konstantin Yoodza, Joseph Capriati, Format B, Citizen Kain, Dema, Heartik, Juan Ddd, Loco & Jam, Ramiro Lopez, Sebastien Leger, Uto Karem, DJ Dandi & Ugo, Amo & Navas, Kernel Key, Mladen Tomic, Roy Rosenfeld, Sean Collier, Umek, MDS, amongst many many others.
