Berlin-based DJ and producer Juliet Fox inaugurates her new techno label TREGAMBE with a vigorous two-track EP. Initially an outpost for her own club-orientated productions, Adelaide-born Juliet sets her Italian surname as the imprint’s title. Meaning ‘three legs’ in English, fusing strength, integrity and authenticity, these defining traits are at the very core of the music her imprint is set to showcase.
Motivated to further personalise the label and utilise her passion for painting and exploring the relationship between art and sound, Juliet will create the artwork for each TREGAMBE release. Inspired by the love and connection found between two souls, the artwork for the inaugural EP is an abstract painting using acrylic on canvas, featuring fictional avatars in such a way that they appear to stretch physicality beyond time and space.
“TREGAMBE really took shape during lockdown. Running a record label is an ambition I’ve been gunning to see happen and the response to the pandemic offered the luxury of time to consider the music I wanted to present and how I wanted to present it. My tastes shifted slightly within the techno spectrum and I want to feed this into my new productions. It’s about having a home for my music that I feel firmly connected to, from the launch to nurturing it as a statement of my identity within the techno scene.” – Juliet Fox
Produced in her Berlin studio during lockdown, the EP leads with searing title cut ‘Time Doesn’t Exist’, which expresses Juliet’s immediate reaction to the world being reduced to a dazed standstill and captures her flair for crafting pulverising techno. ‘Beyond Physicality’ places her in South America, a part of the world she holds close to her heart, with the vocal edits from native singing and field recordings being pulled from her Argentinian tour this time last year.
