Open Records is a techno, house and electronica imprint based out of the sunny state of Queensland, Australia. Founded in the lush tropical paradise of Cairns and now managed out of busy metropolis of Brisbane, Open has grown into a respected and prolific label with more than 50 releases from artists in all corners of the globe.
The Open sound is just that. We allow our artists to define our sound, meaning it always comes from the heart. Over the years we have released everything from deep, progressive and tech-house, to staunch minimal, hypnotic tribal, driving techno and abstract electronica. What has remained consistent is our desire to represent the intelligent, groovy, dancefloor-oriented sound of the Australian underground, with a little help from our friends around the world, too.
During this epic journey, we’ve managed to top the Beatport.com charts, feature in the playlists of some of the world’s biggest DJs and radio shows, host countless events, perform at clubs and festivals across the globe, and helped launch the careers of some of Australia’s most talented DJs and producers. Not bad for what started as a crazy idea from a couple of young guys from Cairns!
We know we’ve been a bit quiet in recent times, but we promise 2017 is the year that Open Records is back in a big way. We have a string of killer releases ready and some exciting new projects and partnerships in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share. Big respect to everyone who has supported us on our journey, we wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
