As one of Amsterdam’s new breed of underground electronic music labels it couldn’t take long before Strøm recordings also ventured into the world of radio making. And with Amsterdam based XT3 techno radio station situated in the same building as the label’s studio and office it seemed only natural to join the XT3 roster and host a live show.

Strøm recordings has been releasing quality music since 2007 crossing between tech-house, minimal and techno and since then has been building a strong international roster of artists as well as a big following of fans across the world. The label’s music is supported by all the big players in the international DJ scene and without a doubt you have heard one or more tracks being dropped in a club or festival and will hear more of Strøm recordings in the future.

Every two weeks on Thursday night from 8pm till 10pm James Nidecker will give you the latest news, hottest tracks and various interviews with international guest DJ’s who will also provide a live or DJ set.

Use Twitter and start your message with @jamesnidecker when you want to contact James during the show and stay connected on more music from the label.

A new year is opening up and what better way to kick start 2011 with a superb debut techno album by Stefanowitz entitled “Zeitgeist”.

And since it’s also the first artist album to be released on Strom recordings we’re all very excited to launch this little jewel into the world the best way we can.

Stefanowitz’s (aka Stephen J Kroos) thoughts on the album title refer to his current state of mind in which he created a sonic landscape of music ‘which hopefully is still worth listening to in ten years from now..’ (quote Stefanowitz). His ability to shape melodic structures with deep and layered dark beats is almost like a typical trademark for this Dutch producer who’s earlier releases got full support from DJ’s like Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Dubfire, Gregor Tresher, Paco Osuna and many more.

The album preview mix is now available for download and stream on the Strom Soundcloud and a special video edit shall be going live in the beginning of 2011 on the label’s Youtube channel.

And you can now download the bonus track ‘Meus Ardor’ here:

In 2011 there will also be various remixes by Estroe, label head James Nidecker and some very special guest producers so keep an eye out for those too.

Time will tell but Stefanowitz definitely has delivered another jewel in the crown of Dutch techno for 2011.
