BEHIND THE SCENES
SOMETHING ABOUT US
Seta Label founded
Seta Label was founded in 2008 Slovak DJs and producers named Funkatron. Initially, the label was mainly focused on techno and minimal.
Chris Florio and Keče
After Chris Florio and Keče (Sensoreal) took over the leadership in 2010, the label has been gradually transformed into its present form and deep house and tech house started to play the leading role. Nevertheless, also other subgenres of electronic club music can be occasionally heard among the releases. Apart from the musical genre the tracks signed to Seta label are mostly deep, groovy, organic and/or emotional pieces produced by artists coming from different parts of the world.
During the years between 2011 and 2012 gradually the other members joined the crew: Martin Greenland (Sensoreal), Martin Klimo (Sensoreal) and Mario Michna (Wychytawacs / Housemusic.sk)
Furthermore, knowledge has been pooled and two studios (Prophecy and Tatraground) have been merged, what resulted in a huge quality improvement in music production, professional mixing, mastering and recording.
In 2015, the another member boarded the team – Tomin Tomovic, who also took over the management, A&R and distribution/publishing functions.
After Chris Florio and Mario Michna left the label, the last member came on board – Peter Benkovic a.k.a Dj Benco – who is one of the founders of the Slovak electronic club music scene.
Currently Seta Label has more than 200 strong releases (albums, EPs and singles) from more than 400 artists from all over the word, among which also well-known, internationally recognized names can be found, such as Kolombo, Luigi Rocca, Mihai Popoviciu, Dapayk, Jay Tripwire, Harold Heath, Karol XVII & MB Valence, Evren Ulusoy, Dale Howard, Fer Ferrari, Sabb, Rishi K, Peter Makto & Gregory S, Sensoreal, Moti Brothers/Indigo Theory and many more.
Besides traditional activities of a label the crew around Seta provides high-standard services in the field of mixing, mastering, recording of bands and solo productions. Additionally the team supports music producers around the label in form of remixes, promo, post-production, release support and valuable advices. Professional studio called Tatraground located in Poprad (Slovakia) is not only a place for the quality music production, but also serves as a central meeting point of mainly Slovak/Czech music producers, singers, artists, composers, DJs, promoters and fans of non-commercial music. Valuable information and experience about the music and club life are being passed to each other, what supports the development of the local club scene. Members of the label are also professional DJs with many years of experience and have been involved in many promoter activities of bigger gigs (SETA nights, Synthesia, Dynamic Sound etc.).
Seta has big plans for the future. The long-term goal is to get the label to the level of internationally recognized strong house music labels. This can only be achieved by continual increase of the share of high-quality releases, hard work and investment of time and capital. These conditions, however, Seta started to fulfil. Launching of vinyl releases are also considered in the future, however, this depends mainly on the evolution of the music industry.
