Highgrade Records has helped shape an exciting and original sound from Berlin, a city world renowned for its cutting edge musical output. Founded in 2000 by the influential and charismatic Tom Clark, the label is dedicated to releasing the highest quality of electronic music.
Although Tom owns and runs the label, he envisages Highgrade more as a collective of like-minded artists and Djs, whom also happen to be close friends. This family based attitude is central to Highgrade's sound aesthetic.
The label aims is to invigorate the minimal deep house genre with stripped back grooves, bass laden funk and quirky electronics. Athough the label is now associated with a minimal house sound it will release a spectrum of music not limited to that genre. With a diverse range of artists on Highgrade's roster expect everything from downbeat chill to tougher techno beats on up-coming releases.
