WaveTec is the newest branch of François K's illustrious Wave Music, but the concept is as old as the label itself. Back in 1994, François was working with a young engineer named Rob Rives, who was developing a defiantly original combination of aggressive electronic rhythms with echoing spaced-out effects. This was destined to become Wave Music's first release, the Downtime LP, and Rob Rives was to become Floppy Sounds. |
WaveTec One captures the harder, more techy sounds of Wave's catalog and our techno imprint clicktracks, music that uses electronics to evoke a unique set of moods and movement. This release marks the beginning of WaveTec as a new label dedicated to the exploration of new dimensions in electronic dance music, and represents yet another opportunity for Wave Music to expand our sound and break new ground.
Both Rob Sperte and Mike Callaghan, the masterminds behind the mix, are old friends of Wave. For years Mike has been our trusty in-house engineer, mixing various Wave releases prior to this one. Rob, a long-time DJ, former studio manager for François' Axis Studios, and now A&R at Wave, is fast emerging as an important creative force helping to shape Wave's future.
