Dilek Recordings is a music vinyl label founded in 2008, founded by the famous artist, Franco Bianco. Franco Bianco was born in Buenos Aires and grew up having a lot of contact with the music, making mix tapes for the breaks in the school and sharing a lot of young experiences. Since his first steps, Franco Bianco has been related to music and Since Then he has polished a personal sound. Though he is an electronic musician orientated to the dance floor, his work covers from ambient or music to listen at home, to Techno music merged with folk, country or tango. That’s why he has been mentioned as the Danny Boyle of electronic music by some European media.
Dilek Records comes to you from the beautiful city of Lucerne, Switzerland and thanks to the super amalgamation of techno, minimal, and jazz music Dilek releases, tourists just got another good reason to visit. From mike wall's 'She Comes,' with it's haunting vocal and minimal flavor to Shadi Megallaa's wonderfully rhythmic and intricately produced 'Giza Viza EP,' Dilek is a label to be watched...and, more importantly, listened to.
The label's boss, like to describe the imprint with these words : ''How much music do we listen to per day? How much of it conveys something to us? How much of it sounds really different? How does it manage not to annoy us? To soothe us? To please us?
DILEK embodies this search. It explores the gap between the erotic and the porn. At DILEK, we try to discover and uncover rather than to remember. We look for the "it" element in music which moves us beyond while rooting us in the here and now. Fact: none of us know very well who we are, or where we are going, or where we might pause in this world in which we breathe. We only know that sometimes we are allowed to grasp "something"... To sense and understand bits and pieces of the mystery. The world reveals itself to us in fragments, like minimal segments of music, still broken, incomplete. Sounds, but not just any sounds. The sounds of doubt, search, investigation, disclosure. Sounds capable of engendering associations, poetry. Sounds un-finished which reflect the Tension of our life, always bridging over gaps, from one particle of experience to the next, creating a whole?''
Dilek Records have also a sister label, called Darek Recordings, which was created after the success of its Swiss/Argentinean "mother-label", to divide their physical and digital releases. It was created on the requests of many of Dilek's artists, and by virtue of the fact that the timetable of Dilek was jam-packed for 12 months ahead.
Artists we can find on this label : Franco Bianco, Alexi Delano, Mathias Schaffauser, Samuel L, Yapaac, Andreas Fox, LLydo, Martin Huergo, Andres Oddone, Marques, and many many others.
