So what’s completely different, then, about Divination Recordings? What units them other than, nicely… everybody else?

We sat down with label head Wil Theatrix to debate their launch and all issues Divination. Let’s get into it.

Hey man! Glad to be having a phrase with you in regards to the new label. How goes it?

Yeah, issues are going nice man. 

So letʼs get proper into it… whatʼs with all this mystical occult vibes that the label is centralized round? Did I get that proper?

Yes sir.  The label attracts closely on the occult and pagan imagery.   Our launch and preliminary promo schedules are plotted out towards the lunar phases and astrological phenomena. In addition, our launch artwork and promo has heavy esoteric affect as nicely as a result of the similarities between esoteric & non secular practices and that of artists are too many to disregard.  In many esoteric circles, it’s believed that the act of creation, reminiscent of portray or music manufacturing, are inherently magical attributable to the truth that artistic endeavors transcend language limitations.  For these which might be involved in studying extra, we’ve arrange a Facebook group by way of the Divination web page to curate esoteric content material because it pertains to the humanities – an open “guide of shadows” if you’ll.

Tell us a bit in regards to the labelʼs influences… what sort of music do you see your self releasing in yr 1-2?

I believe that might rely upon the time of yr actually and the way the artist desires to current themselves.  Both my spouse and co-founder X and I like a large spectrum of drum and bass so we don’t count on artists to pigeon-hole themselves.  Express your self nevertheless you need and if it’s dope, clear, and meets or exceeds our requirements, we’d be glad make it occur.  That being mentioned, count on tunes from a variety of artists in a variety of sounds. 

Letʼs speak about Theatrix. How has this launch come collectively?

Honestly, I’ve been sitting on this tune for some time.  Dip Vertigo was nonetheless a part of Theatrix when this tune was began.  He did the vocal path within the monitoring session in addition to some piano work.  We met Franny B by way of the homie D’Cipher out right here in LA.  I despatched it out to some DJs over the subsequent yr and a half of engaged on it and acquired some nice responses and a few curiosity from just a few labels however nothing ever got here to fruition – chalk it as much as poor timing.   X and I have been entering into ghost searching and the occult on the time when the concept to begin a label began manifesting by itself.  No matter how a lot I needed to disregard it, It felt like one thing was telling us to make our personal alternatives. I fought the concept for some time and it actually was X that was the driving pressure to get us going. We talked at size about our imaginative and prescient for the label, how we wish to impression the group, and what legacy we wish to go away behind.  Afterwards, we contacted Label-Engine, laid out a technique and right here we’re just a few months later.     

How do your regular studio days go? Any important errr…. rituals that you could be possess…. I mean- execute on a standard day?

I like to begin by clearing my head and setting an intention for the session.  Sometimes, I’ll do that by way of meditation.  Sometimes, by way of taking part in video video games.  All is determined by the day I’ve had actually and what I’m getting down to accomplish. It’s essential to begin with a transparent head.

If you might collaborate with anyone- who would it not be?

Man, I’d like to do a monitor with Riya and/or Tiki Taane within the sales space and sit on the desk with Break and Chris.SU.  That can be a dream challenge.

Lastly, any future releases on the label youʼd want to share with the readers?

Next up, we acquired newcomer Composure on his debut launch adopted by one thing from Kronology to spherical out the yr.  Next yr, count on a particular one thing from Random Movement, tunes from up and coming expertise, and extra particular releases with veteran producers. 

This launch is scheduled for Oct 10 beatport unique / 24 worldwide.
