240 Volts

British tech house act Swayzak have announced a services deal with !K7 to revive their 240 Volts label.

Launched in 1999, 240 Volts began as an outlet for some of the demos the then duo picked up on their international travels. The label eventually slowed and then stopped releasing music in the mid-2000s. The !K7 deal will not only make the company’s full catalogue available again, but will also make many releases available digitally for the first time.

Swayzak’s David Brown, aka Brun, said in a statement: “It’s very exciting to be relauching the 240 Volts label. We have worked with some cool labels over the years from Minus, Playhouse and Mille Plateaux to Fabric, Pokerflat and Tresor, and with all our !K7 catalogue available again it feels like a good time to draw a line under the old material and make it available under one roof, whilst having a singular home for our forthcoming productions, and perhaps the productions of a few old chums along the way”.

Releases on the various imprints run under the 240 Volts name – Swayzak Recordings, Voltmusik, Snooploops and Disco Dub Plates – will also be made available. Amongst the artists included in the deal are Konrad Black, Prosumer Mike Shannon, Jay Haze, Richard Davis, as well as Swayzak.
