Label Profile: Philpot Germany

In the vein of a wave of german labels and artists that are mxing up the well known electonic-tech german sound and deeper grooves, Philpot is leaving its mark on the scene. There is a clear homage to the the sounds of detroit in their releases.

In 2000 Michel Baumann and Tobi Ettle founded Philpot-Records. Heavily influenced by the hey day of house music these two went on to release “The Media Pt.1” and the second one “Midnight Funk Infinity” came from Soulphiction aka Jackmate in 2000 and 2001 respectively.

Things went quiet for a while but 2005 and 2006 have seen them release a range of acclaimed tracks including Manmade Science-Turn Down the Lights. Also getting plenty of air play has been material from The Mole.

Keep your eyes ans ears glued to releases form these guys and this label!!
