There is only few German labels that musically are as diverse and universal as Staubgold. Strongly influenced by the personality of its founder and label manager Markus Detmer, the Berliner label Staubgold presents its 100th release in 2010. Staubgold was founded in Cologne in 1998 and moved to Berlin in 2003. The musician, journalist and activist Markus Detmer took many risks to make it one of the most unusual labels of the past decade. Staubgold has its origin in the internationally acclaimed Cologne electronic music scene of the 1990s which was centered around groups and artists like Mouse On Mars, Kreidler and Gas. Since the beginning it took advantage of the overwhelming creativity in that city at the river Rhine and the generous support of protagonists like Frank Dommert (Entenpfuhl, Sonig) and Georg Odijk (A-Musik). Very quickly Staubgold built its own profile. By combining unusual sounds and an experimental approach with a strong authenticity it soon managed to create listening pleasure which affects both head and heart. Many artists were already signed at the beginning of their long lasting careers, for example Stefan Schneider (Mapstation, To Rococo Rot), Timo Reuber (Klangwart, Reuber), Günter Reznicek (Groenland Orchester, Nova Huta), Harald Sack Ziegler (Sack & Blumm), Oren Ambarchi and the "Institut Fuer Feinmotorik". At the same time Detmer always took care of bridging different musical generations. So he worked with pioneers of experimental music like Faust, Embryo and David Cunningham who strongly influence young musicians until today. The label doesn't promote a certain musical style. It's all about off-mainstream music, music in niches. As opposed to many other labels Staubgold is not just working in one, but in all musical niches. There's a common musical sense, an attitude towards music, art and life which guides as a red line through the label's output. Therefore "Music out of place" is the label's slogan. The move to Berlin in 2003 was a logical step. That unique metropolis with its open and free way of life perfectly corresponds with the musical freedom and adventurous approach of the label and its maker. Therefore it's no surprise that Staubgold's roster opened up even further and incorporated artists in the fields of Hip Hop (Curse Ov Dialect), Reggae (David Last vs. Zulu) and Rock music (Projekt Transmit). Besides running the label Markus Detmer together with Timo Reuber is a member of longstanding electronic duo Klangwart. As a DJ he presents his sensitive sound collages between minimal music, avantgarde and techno at festivals and in clubs all around the world. http://www.staubgold.com http://www.myspace.com/thestaubgolds
