Miami’s Doc Brown unleashes the second and third tracks on his recently launched Unlearn:Records, two dance cuts that aim to straddle the boundary between house and techno. Possibly known for performances at EDC and BPM Festival as well as holding a longtime residency aboard Groove Cruise, this year he has become a label owner for the first time in his career.
‘Welcome To Space’ is a groove-led tech house cut with a disorienting rhythm and percussion, while ‘Program’ is a techno track with a growling low-end and big breakdown.
Unlearn:Records will serve as an outlet for his own take on tech house and techno, as well as showcasing other artists producing music that possibly sits a little outside of the status quo.
Doc Brown: “Setting up a label was something I've wanted to do for a long time, but it's really only been in the last year that I've been able to solidify my vision for what I want to achieve. Truth is, without investment in a release, there really isn't much chance of success, and very few labels, outside of the big ones, are making those investments.
“The current system perpetuates the idea that you need to have a big fan based to get signed, which stifles creativity and new artist development, or that you need to sign to one of the big 'gatekeeper' labels to be successful. Unlearn:Records is based on the idea that we may need to rethink the artist/label relationship status-quo at its core."
