Five Electronic Music Labels You Should Be Paying Attention To

Here at Potholes, we welcome a breadth of genres onto our humble website. Something that I personally love is discovering new, underground record labels with killer releases and a gnarly artist lineup, and a few of these in particular are some serious business. Take notes, bookmark some stuff, follow some folks on Soundcloud, because you’ll be seeing some goodness from these guys in the cheap seats soon enough.

    Dropping Gems, Mixpak, Symbols and Vase-Forever (Canada) are a few other great ones

    This is certainly my opinion, thank you for pointing that out.

    Party Like Us Records, Slow Roast, Soulection, Grappa Frisbee Records, Fade To Mind, Sounds by LIve For the Funk, Austro Nautico like the guy above said. A lot of American artists are signing tracks overseas, which is absolutely cool like as long as they get out ya know? The American electronic scene is still developing via club nights and artist collectives, while the house/techno scene is just growing exponentially.

    What’s going down state-side in the electronic scene? This is all pretty Euro-centric.

    ya…umm…this is just, like, your opinion man, because i would have to strongly disagree on Body High + Justus + Marble

    Not comparing the two, just saying that they were both in the stratosphere popularity-wise around the same time. Actually if you check out Boiler Room right now (like, at this moment), there’s a pretty solid example of the French sound

    Yo just because two artists are from the same country and make house music doesn’t mean they’re similar in any way. I’m a young gun, I wasn’t hip to the Justice/Daft Punk craze when it was happening, but I’m not ignorant to it.

    Hey now, I was just in a combative mood. Honestly wouldn’t change much about the list! And yes, fuck David Guetta

    I blame David Guetta for a lot of the redundant shit tho

    Looks like we have a hater on our hands..

    Haha I know. I think French House is more prevalent than any other just about any other European sound though. Look at all the chainsaw synth shit on the radio, all pretty much a derivation of the Cross sound. Oh and that Kavinski song on the Drive soundtrack got a lot of buzz

    C’mon, you get his point. It’s hyperbole.

  15. Andrew Martin
    Nov 20, 2012 @ 11:51:00

    It’s much more prevalent now, though.

    Also, I’m sorry, but “The French house scene is very much a new and distant concept for us here in America”? Come on now the whole French house craze happened, like, six years ago with the first Justice album and the peak of Daft Punk’s US hype

    “which has been released for over a week and still gets favorable play time”

    So most of the music you listen to is out of rotation after one week?
