The Very Polish Cut Outs
For over 10 years, the label successfully run by Zambon has been extracting and promoting musical pearls unearthed from the cavernous archives of Polish popular music. The label does it most often by giving them a new context, using studio manipulations in the form of the so-called edits and remixes. In this way, it also adapts them to the needs of modern DJ sets and the requirements of the audience. The label, which was established to issue edits of forgotten or less known Polish songs, evolved into a full-size label, which contributed to an increase in interest in local music domestically and abroad. It is worth to mention such CDs as, for example, the archival album “Dotyk” by Renata Lewandowska, the compilation “Echo wielkiej płyty” with electronic compositions from the 1980s released for the first time, or the artist’s enthusiastically received albums under the pseudonym Pejzaż. For over a decade, the label has also promoted many new talented producers and DJs, such as Pejzaż, Holiday80, Karol Aleksander, DJ Duch, Bisti, Dyyune, Old Spice and Ptaki. The DJ sets played by Zambon and the label’s DJs and producers, abound in a non-obvious selection of Polish and Eastern European music. Music, which consists of dusty original recordings from the past, various edits and remixes from the vast catalog of the label (and not only), and contemporary disco and house dance music, produced by local artists. This long-honed musical formula made the label’s sets and showcases original and exceptional events on the Polish club scene.
