Happy 24th anniversary, Astralwerks! As someone who has been intimate with the label since its inception 24 years ago, we’re pleased that they’re still relevant and breaking ground.
Known for releasing music by the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and Kraftwerk to Brian Eno, Röyksopp, and Alison Wonderland, the imprint will mark its upcoming milestone with a series of fun celebratory activations (see details below).
Obligatory press release gush from General Manager Glenn Mendlinger: “Astralwerks was established as a response to, and in recognition of, the rise of electronic music in the mid 90’s and since then have remained dedicated to working with and signing innovators that have both transformed dance music and moved culture,” said , who has been with the label for 20 of its 24 years. “We could not be prouder of our incredible roster and wanted to honor our 24th anniversary with a 24 hour-themed celebration. Astralwerks…always on and always open.”
