Haustronaut Recordings, a movement of music

The techno, deep and psy-house record label based in Ibiza

In the music world generally, and in the electronic scene specifically, musical talent is often undervalued. Please, don't get me wrong, many of us are enchanted by the big parties, great stage production and Beatport number ones, but it is undeniable that behind the large-scale club and festival booths, is not always the talent which rewards. At the shadowy fringes there are hundreds of new hidden promises, whose composite abilities and mastery at the decks deserve a place at the top with the scene's elite.

Here is where the ghost producers - the invisible artists behind the mixing desks - come into play. Artists who produce many of the tracks that we listen to during the best sets of our heroes on the most crowded of dance-floors. Take Samu Rodrigue's Laugh It Up, for example, played by techno titan Marco Carola at his popular Music On, or Upercent's Spaceman, played by Nicole Moudaber at our beloved Space Ibiza.

This is the reason why initiatives and projects like Haustronaut Recordings constitute a tidal wave of positivity for the electronic music scene. The label, based on our white isle, aims to give a voice to those artists in development, side-stepping the ghost writing policy that our scene has sadly grown accustomed to. The big heads behind Haustronaut: Nathan Filby, Motoe Haus, Rufus White and Tal Finney, have created this label for the sole purpose of promoting and distributing quality music and ensuring freedom of production, not only for Balearic artists, but for everyone who wants to be heard through global speakers.

One of the first releases came by the hand of the Ibiza resident Motoe Haus working under the name of Stagoni, and presents a Balearic-infused production full of deep and psy-house grooves that have sounded out at parties like the mythical Ibiza Dance Tribe, where the artist himself played at the end of last season. Taking into account that the label was only constructed in September 2014, the list of artists they are launching is sizeable, including Sean Lazarus, Marlon Klann, Pashtor, Ashley Hanoman, Dorian Grey and many others.
