Outbound the new label focused around live streams in impressive and remote locations
Firstly congratulations on the launch of Outbound Records – How did the Record Label come about and what is the meaning behind the name?
It’s been coming in some form or another for close to 15 years now – once the right combination of people and the moment came together, it happened naturally. The idea behind the name is, the promotional work we do is impressive, remote locations – we take you Outbound. The definition of the word Outbound is “travelling away from a particular place”.
We noticed you did a live stream with Fleur for the launch of the label, the setting was very scenic – is this something you will be doing regularly?
Now we know more about the label, tell us a bit more about the team behind Outbound Records – How many of you are there and what are your roles?
The WhatsApp chat has eight of us in (always fun when we get asked Guestlist numbers!). Each member offers something unique as well as the fact seven out of eight of us are DJ’s. Other roles include video and photography, carpentry (hence the Outbound Sign), social media marketing, web and graphic design and music producers. Ultimately it’s a group of friends basking in the pleasures of all that comes with what we do
Always a tough question, but always worth asking – If you could name three records (each) which have been definitive in leading you to where you are now, what are they and why?
There are so many of us we had to select more than three!
All of these answers have very similar reasons given – “absolutely rinsed over the years”, “intertwined with youth and coming of age”, “propelled me into the music I love today”, “remember where and when it was I first heard it and it blew me away”
Deadmau5 – Strobe
Roger Sanchez – Another Chance
Cojoc & Moldovan – Pleasure
Rich NxT – Serious
Oxia – Domino
Boddika – Warehouse
Objekt – Tinderbox
Cobblestone Jazz – India in Me
Sharkey, Kevin Energy & K Komplex – Anna (Cube::Hard Remix)
What are the plans for Oubound for the rest of 2020/early 2021?
The beating heart of what we do are the events. We miss them terribly and can’t wait to continue our agenda with events as the centrepiece. As for the label, you’ll know when there’s another release because another Fleur’esque video will drop with a new artist!
Thanks for taking the time to speak to us guys and best of luck with the label!
Thanks for having us, it was great chatting with you.
