South African house music artists Jullian Gomes and Kid Fonque have started a new record label together called Stay True Sounds. The two said they were inspired by their shared experience and passion to 'unearth, nurture and present real, evocative music'.
Read their full statement below about the new venture:
At a time when mediocrity and artifice dilute and diminish dance music, two tastemakers have formulated the antidote. Enter Stay True Sounds, a new independent record label that places good taste over hits and longevity over trends.
A partnership between Kid Fonque and Jullian Gomes, the label’s creative agenda is simple: to unearth, nurture and present real, evocative music.
Inspired by their shared experience and passion as DJs and the music knowledge, ceaseless research and collecting which supports it, Stay True Sounds aspires to deliver what they demand as music lovers, collectors, DJs and artists.
While their solid working relationship began quite some time ago, it wasn't until 2015 when the pair hatched a plan to build their own entity. Stay True Sounds is the next step in the journey and gives them the freedom to release any genre, engage with and develop like-minded contemporaries, and conjure new directions for established forms.
