Tokyo Dawn Records (TDR) is the name of a tough little music unit meanwhile based in Munich, Germany. Established 1997 by Marc Wallowy and friends, TDR has been spreading soul futurism on the internet since it’s beginning. Widely credited as pioneer label of the netaudio movement starting in the mid 90′s, this unconventional collective made its first steps into the online world using irc networks, then experimenting with new collaborative techniques and open source music concepts on the internet.
Since the label relaunch late 2009, TDR has released eclectic long players from a wide range of unique artists. Musically focusing a very distinct subset of genres like future funk, neo-soul and eclectic jazz, TDR has developed a recognizable and innovative sound stamp. The public release of audio processing plugins developed at the TDR studios added to the destinctive sound signature and perception of the label.
For 2013 TDR has planned the release of very special LPs from Personal Life, Pugs Atomz, Soulparlor, Amalia and Reggie B besides some new compilation projects. TDR’s expansion into fashion and audio plugins will also continue this year, so watch this space!
