grand petrol



Grand Petrol Recordings represents the independent Berlin based music label lauched in 2004 and run by Jan Driver.

Composer, producer and DJ since 1993, Jan Driver is without a doubt one of the spearheads of the current international techno scene. As an essential member of the Boysnoize Records family, Jan has been releasing numerous remarkable tracks, as the super, super heavy “Gain Reaction” EP or high quality remixes (Laurent Garnier, Armand Van Helden, Modeselektor, Siriusmo, …) that have brought him great recognition towards party makers and ravers from all over the globe.

Founder of GrandPetrol Recordings 2004, Jan Driver continues to deliver house music as tough and uncompromising as it is brilliant. Throughout the last five years as a solo artist Jan Driver has released original material under his own GrandPetrol imprint as well as Made to Play, Boys Noize, Formaldehyd and Kombinat.

Jan continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the studio and to date his engineering skills have appeared on works by some of the most prolific names in electronic music; Underworld, Jesse Rose, Simian Mobile Disco, Modesektor, Siriusmo, Riva Starr, Malente, Daniel Haaksman, Laurent Garnier, Duke Dumont just to pick 10.

To say Jan Driver is busy behind the desk would be a gross understatement, with close to 20 years producing and engineering at the very forefront of electronic music for some of the hottest labels and artists around. Jan is showing no signs of slowing up now and his recent remix of Boys Noize ‘Kontact Me’ is quite a statement of intent for the future.

Grand Petrol Recordings has developed in the last years a rich back catalogue which includes, besides the owner’s releases collaborations with acts like: Bolt, Drivers See, Siriusmo, Oliver $, Harry Axt, XZOZ, Heroin, amongst several others.
