king kong



King Kong Records represents the independent german music label launched in 2001 and run by Sharam Jey.

When it comes to dance music most people tend to automatically switch off and think of repetitive, unenlightened, brain-poaching drivel. However there are still a few DJs/producers out there who continue to burn the light bright and keep striving to push sound forward, onward and upward and find a way to take it and relate it to the masses’ and taking it to the masses is one thing Cologne’s Sharam Jey does best.

He started in the early 90s putting out two studio albums, various mix-compilations and more than 100 releases on some of the most established labels like his very own King Kong Records plus Nervous Records, Off Records and many more. Plus he is always busy working on remixes for other great names like Moby, Gossip, Faith No More, Faithless, Diplo & Don Diablo, Mason & Roisin Murphy to name just a few.

After years releasing stuff on different kinds of labels and remix works for international acts such as Moby, he had the feeling it was time to start his own label and so King Kong Records was born. The purpose was to release ground-breaking electronic dance music. The original intention to just release his own material, from Djs for Djs, was soon amended by the idea of giving new talented artists a platform for their work.

Today talents such as the LouLou Players, Nick K, Roman Salzger and Robert M, El Carlitto & Maxim Lany and more are part of the King Kong Crew. ....
