From the cradles of techno music’s primordial birth, Linear emerges to represent over three decades of culture as experienced by two veterans of the techno community each hailing from Chicago and Detroit. As techno is represented in the darkest recesses of the darkest places around the world, it seems the fire and passion that fueled the techno movement has longed for a new entity to champion the sound. Building on a past steeped in excess and innovation, the Linear imprint will provide the world with a new focal point to experience the zenith of techno events, production and podcasts from known and unknown operatives.
Light and dark meet in label heads Gabriel Palomo and Alex SanFaçon, bringing opposing celestial energies to bear on the creation of this burgeoning force. Alex SanFaçon, the father of Ghostly International’s industrial child Kill Memory Crash and Gabriel Palomo, the luminous purveyor of techno anthems via his Zuvuya Recordings imprint. Their credits are too long to list but include a vast and diverse portfolio of remixes and licenses to mixes, video games and television culminating in two veterans, hardened by blood, mud and midi. Their bonds were tempered when Gabriel accepted the position of live percussionist for Kill Memory Crash. His time in close proximity to Alex in the studio combined with their shared love of the techno genre would yield the birth of the concept now known as Linear. The concept: Combine their knowledge and connections in the dance music scene to open doors for an array of experienced techno producers the world needs to hear.
Major global support from the expansive list of friends to the label is expected. The future is bright but you will need a lot more than shades and more likely a fire retardant jump suit as Linear label cohorts begin a multi platform assault that will be felt locally and cosmically. This website will be a destination for podcasts, event information and all other happenings for souls by the speakers who like their sonic pleasures served stout. Passion and power meet to bring the techno world the best of the Linear crew and its global supporters.
