We are COMBINE AUDIO
A Techno record label based in Barcelona and founded by Paula Cazenave
Music that will be released on Combine Audio explores the tension between techno of 'now' and 'then'. This turns out to be the spawning ground for a kind of techno that evokes the grooves and sounds of twenty years ago with the crisp quality of today's recording process. On top of that, there's the plethora of new effects and digital plugins of today's music production world. With all this in mind, Combine Audio literally 'combines' the old school techno and the more actual techno sound, merging them into an amalgamation of a hybrid style. This results in techno tracks that remind of techno from the 90's to early 2000's - a sound that's calling the attention of old school DJs that are still playing nowadays - yet with a fresh vibe.
