Ekler’o’shock Records is one of the first recording labels to blend both electronic music and indie pop in a functional space, with artists, like Marie Madeleine, Alexandre Chatelard, and Triomphe, paving the way. Supported by the growing french electro scene in the early-mid 2000s, Data and DANGER helped the publishing house grow into an internationally recognized entity, and rightfully so.
Though Ekler’o’shock has seen a number of artists come and go over the years, the label’s sound and production quality has consistently impressed. To be honest, Data’s Skywriter LP and DANGER’s 9/17/2007 EP were the releases that had the biggest impacts on our musical tastes, with the artist’s distorted bass lines and neonized synths casting a spell on us. From there, we were hooked.
Let’s not forget Paris’s In Crowded Subways EP or Triomphe’s Pavane EP – both were equally spectacular, enticing listeners with alternative, electro-pop vibes.
