Another week, another organisation responsible for releasing records of the beats and bleeps variety. This time round we find ourselves tipping the proverbial hat to a crew that started life as something of an essential destination on New York’s underground party map, before going on to put out tracks with which to soundtrack said events, alongside nights in London, Moscow, Berlin and Paris.
From this Big Apple base then Elon Admony runs the ReSolute firm, with its imprint arm now having seen releases from a host of contemporary faces, the likes of Kiki, Maceo Plex, Agaric, Dario Zenker, Francesco Tedeschi, and Franklin De Costa being amongst the most notable. Quite the contemporary set up, with sounds this good we can think of nothing better than opening the floor up to the aforementioned bossman, ahead of his appearance at Select*Elect in London this weekend alongside label cohort Connie, and Alexi Delano (click here for our competition for guestlist places to said soiree). Here we go then.
ReSolute - Elon Admony – USA
Describe your imprint’s output.
My style and my taste in music is very diverse, since I started DJing and producing I was into anything from electronica, house, deep, groovy to techno, dub, Detroit, Chicago and NY’s influence on electronic dance music. We’re not trying to stick to one genre, instead we are always looking for fresh ideas, and timeless, cutting edge music… tunes that will hopefully not sound out-dated a year or ten years from now. We are more than just a label, we are constantly creating a bigger core of friends-artists, which we showcase with releases, remixes and performance in our home base – New York, and abroad.
What would you say makes it different?
We’re not trying to be different; we just like to contribute to the music industry. I think the whole brand combined is what makes it different, the label and the events go hand in hand, the core of our friends, artists and people that have been supporting these last four years.
What is it that makes you keep looking for new talent to expose?
It’s really hard to find new talent, these days music production tools are so easily available and everyone and his lil’ sister can produce. But out of all the demos we get, we know there is something.
What’s the label’s pinnacle achievement so far?
Launching the label! Well, the label started after a long series of underground events. It was a natural step for us. We are still new, we only have three releases under our belt, but we have already gotten tons of support from many respected artists, and amazing feedbacks, and we are looking forward for the next few releases. I think we had a great start and after a long break since the last release, we are ready to get it rolling again after our current European tour.
If people were going to hear one release from your camp, what would you prefer it to be?
The next release…
All being well, skip forward five years, where would you like things to have got to?
We don’t really have a plan, we’re enjoying what we are doing, we are spontaneous and looking forward for the future. But we are definitely considering more consistent releases and showcases. We are also hoping to create a headquarters where we will do our events, have studio spaces, a gallery and stuff. We would like to collaborate with visual artists, installations, and create a warehouse of artistic networking.
