20 years of dope beats & grooves

20 years ago DOGU aka Thomas Katongole-Strauch started Switchstance Recordings in our home town Moers / Germany. Since then the label has released all our music by Ancient Astronauts and lots of music by fellow artists Kabanjak, DJ Brace, Protassov, Deela, Muito Kaballa, Astroboter, Enrique Nicolas Noviello, Fat Albert Einstein, Void Pedal and more.

The new label compilation “DOPE BEATS for DOPE PEEPS” highlights the dopest releases of the Switchstance artist roster from the past 20 years. And it features great artists such as Akua Naru, Martin Perna (Antibalas / Ocote Soul Sounds), Hugo Kant, Raashan Ahmad and more.

we hope all of you are doing fine. We would like to announce the release of a remix of our song “Pump Up The Sound” featuring Ugandan songstress Bani Fyah. Greek Reggae producer Professor Skank laid his hands on our song to give it some deep, sound system tested remix treatment for the dancehall. This is heavy soundbow biznizz for all the Reggae dancefloors worldwide.
