Quantize Recordings has just celebrated the 9th anniversary of our first release.
Our co-founders, DJ Spen and Thommy Davis, started the label in 2012 as a way to release dance music that they love. According to DJ Spen, “In addition to releasing our own records, the plan was to release records from other producers that we felt represented our vision of dance music.
We wanted Quantize to be a platform, or really a springboard, to help creators learn about the music industry and share their music with the world. The music we release might have elements of funk, gospel, blues, jazz, or gospel, but soul is at the heart of everything we do.”
The unquantize sub-label was started in 2014. “We started unquantize in order to release a wider variety of underground tracks that didn’t necessarily fit with what we were doing on Quantize at the time, which was a little more artist and song oriented. Unquantize is really an outlet that allows us to experiment with different types of dance music such as deep, afro, acid, tech, and pop.
I am really amazed at how much it has grown. We now have a lot of songs crossing between the two labels due to remixing, and we are having a lot of fun seeing where unquantize takes us.” ~Dj Spen
