It has been an incredible twelve months for UK record imprint Krafted. As all around the pandemic wreaked havoc within the music industry, label partners Paul Sawyer, Darren Braddick and Simon Sinfield continued releasing quality music, putting on storming events and have made a name for themselves around the globe thanks to their residency on BBC Radio 1.
Although known for their progressive house and melodic techno releases, it was their more laidback chilled brand that saw them invited onto Radio 1 for a 6 month residency.
After impressing BBC Radio 1 with their run of shows, they were again invited back to end 2021 with another run of 6 shows!
Once clubs were able to reopen last year, Krafted dipped their toes back into clubland with their own night at The Vault Nightclub in Bournemouth. The first event featured legendary trance singer/songwriter Jan Johnston; fresh from her fantastic Krafted releases ‘One Step Beyond’ and ‘Circle’.
The second event got the town jumping in October ’21 when the team brought scene leader Solarstone to the South Coast. Rounding off an incredible year for this dynamic label.
The Krafted Team are kicking things off in style for 2022, by bringing to the UK one of the hottest young talents of the progressive house scene, Matt Fax.
Matt Fax is rightly becoming a leading light within the progressive and melodic genres. For a producer who has only just hit his twenties, he’s able to boast a host of career achievements; releases on labels like Enhanced Music, Colorize, Armada, & Anjunabeats.
Remixes for a-list stars; Armin van Buuren, Tritonal, Gareth Emery, and incredible collaborations with scene legends like BT!
Fresh from a North American tour, Krafted bring Matt Fax to the UK, playing alongside label partners Paul Sawyer and Simon Sinfield, with support from the super-talented DJ/singer D-Vox. The first Krafted event of 2022 is clearly not to be missed.
Continuing to stamp their mark within the scene, Krafted have been brought back to host a six-month residency on BBC Radio 1 from 22nd January 2022 with Matt Fax mixing the show in February ahead of his appearance in Bournemouth.
