It’s about the space “in between” and not about the known & static ! Sonar Kollektiv was founded in 1998 by Berlin's internationally renowned DJ and producer team JAZZANOVA. The intention was to create an independent record label and publisher connected to a worldwide independent distribution network. With more then 200 catalogue releases over the few last years, among them well known artists like ÂME, DIXON, WAHOO, FORSS, MICATONE, CLARA HILL, GEORG LEVIN, NUSPIRIT HELSINKI, AZYMUTH, FAT FREDDYS DROP, BENNY SINGS, DOMU, DIMLITE, SLOPE, MOONSTARR, ROBAG WRUHME, EVA BE and of course JAZZANOVA themselves (their compilation The Remixes 1997 – 2000 sold more than 150.000 copies worldwide!). Sonar Kollektiv can claim to be one of the strongest and best-known German labels of our time, furthermore Sonar Kollektiv runs the two sublabels; Best 7 which is mainly devoted to dub sounds and Innervisions devoted to club and house. Additionally the label has established two very successful compilation series in the last years: Secret Love (part 3 scheduled for late 2006) and ….mixing (part one with JAZZANOVA sold more then 30.000 copies worldwide; part two is scheduled for 2006 with ÂME and part three scheduled for 2007 featuring GILLES PETERSON!) Label heads JAZZANOVA are widely known as figure heads of a genre that used to be labelled NuJazz, but it can hardly be described by the limitations of words like “New” and “Jazz” today. Through their outstanding work as DJ’s, artists and producers they have become forerunners in the further development of this and many other genres. Helping to stretch its borders while gradually incorporating various influences ranging from dub to brazil, jazz to house; African music to downbeat and even techno to minimal electronic music. Their openness to all kinds of sounds and genres has helped them to be a part in some of the most important musical developments of the last decade. Influencing a broad range of well known international and national artists and creating a truly contemporary sound. While establishing the Jazzanova universe through their numerous releases and their remix work for many well known artists such as MASTERS AT WORK, CALEXICO, COMMON, LENNY KRAVITZ, 4 HERO, INCOGNITO, URSULA RUCKER, TRÜBY TRIO, IAN POOLEY, MJ COLE, U.F.O. etc. JAZZANOVA have formed with their label Sonar Kollektiv a platform to help to further define their musical universe, illustrating the wide range of music they are dedicated to. Not styles and genres, but rather the relationship of those to each other is the driving force behind them and the label. With this in mind it’s logical that JAZZANOVA named their first album In Between back in 2002, since their focus is indeed the space “in between” and not the known or static. This space – the space between the genres, between acoustic and electronic, new and old, club and home – the hybrid – this is JAZZANOVA and this is Sonar Kollektiv ! As “in between” is one important source for the understanding of the labels work and output, “quality” is another. Since its early days Sonar Kollektiv releases feature music beyond the average commercial standards. All members of the Sonar Kollektiv family (you may as well say collective since this is the translation of “Kollektiv” and chosen as part of the name for a reason), all musicians, DJs, graphic designers, artists, friends and families involved in the projects try to protect the idea of quality in music, design, live presence and label work no matter which individual sound or style is featured. To keep this high standards Sonar Kollektiv always tries to progress with each new release. Many international renown artists, such as ATJAZZ, CAPITOL A, KING BRITT, VIKTER DUPLAIX, RECLOOSE, TIEFSCHWARZ, MAURICE FULTON, I-CUBE, MADLIB, HERBERT, BEANFIELD, BUGZ IN THE ATTIC, JAZZY JEFF, KOOP etc. have been attracted by this approach, leading to many collaborations with Sonar Kollektiv for productions and remixes over the recent years.
