It’s been an amazing journey and we could never have imagined that Standby would have grown into such a beast of a label, but looking back at the first 50 releases so far and all the incredible support we have had it’s easy to see how we made it! So many highlights, the early days of Slytek formed the basis of the label and “Body Heat” was the one that first put them on the map over summer 2008 with triggering support from DJ’s in Ibiza and subsequent appearance on Bora Bora’s compilation CD/DVD. Along the way we have had support from some of the biggest DJ’s and discovered ace producers from across the world. For label-artist Slytek to round off the 50th release with the debut Album “Emerge” was a perfect way to reach this milestone. Take a minute to check out the full back catalogue at Beatport

A couple of very special forthcoming tracks from Slytek signed to the super-hot PHW label, Gemini has the classic Slytek melodic uplifting feel with a few anthemic Prydz -esque moments, while Kikimako maintains a deeper jazzier feel.
