Club legend Lele Sacchi and Italy’s most influential indie label Asian Fake present their newest Milan-based venture, Stolen Goods Records. Their first release, ‘Volume Zero’, is a sampler featuring twelve Italian artists showcasing the upcoming flavours of the imprint, spanning all corners of the electronic music spectrum.
‘Stolen Goods – Volume 0’ boasts an impressive cast of established artists and newcomers alike. Life and Death and Ransom Note veteran Bawrut, legendary 90s hero DJ Rocca and up & coming Asian Fake artist Plastica kick off the release. They are joined by Funk Rimini’s blissful footwork, recent Truncate & Symbolism signing Elisa Bee’s floor-filling techno and Nic Sarno’s experimental style of new wave dance music.
The release also sees Hot Creations & Defected’s Rogue D rework an old Tyree Cooper hip-house track before label co-owner Lele Sacchi comes in with a hypermodern fusion of house and techno. Apparel’s Artizhan, Ruff Stuff, Sickarone and Tempio del Futuro Perduto mastermind Industrial Romantico round things off by adding a rave-ready, electro and breakbeat influenced package to the release.
“Why Stolen Goods? Since the avant garde era all contemporary arts are based on stealth and theft, especially in the DJ and clubbing scene: when your world is not represented, you write your own rules, you draw from it and make your own – that means dubbed illegal mixtapes, pirate radio, illegal parties, re-edits and ‘DJ only’ bootlegs….” – Lele Sacchi
Stolen Goods Records’ first compilation arrives 8th July 2022, with the vinyl in September 2022.
