Touché

Profile:
Touché Records was founded in 1994 by Alex Dijksterhuis (Jamez) & Gaston Steenkist (Dobre). Their first output was on Robin "Jaydee" Albers First Impression Label. But they wanted more participation in their music to carry out their own vision. One of their staring points was that they wanted to combine techno with house. Alex for the Techno and Gaston for the House. It was the perfect combination. In the mid-nineties the label was very succesfull with it's transatlantic sound. A mixture of American House and European Techno. When the succes came, dj's like Carl Craig, Booka Shade, Orlando Voorn and Slam Dj's released on the label as well. The label was most succesfull in the USA and was played by dj's like Danny Tenaglia & Deep Dish. But also Darren Emerson was a big fan. Although the UK claims to be the one who have produced the first Tech-House record, it was the Dutch Touché who were the first with their second release 51 Days - Paper Moon. At the end of the 90's Touché was voted for best label of the year in germany. This happend without any big promotion actions.

Touché is the label set up by Jamez & Dobre an excellent label with some groundbreaking releases. They mostly release their own productions but also artists like Carl Craig, Booka Shade and Orlando Voorn have released on Touché. They also release solo but their best output is when they produce as a duo like Trancesetters or Tata Box Inhibitators. Under each alias they produce different kinds of music. 51 days is deep house, Tata Box Inhibitators is Acid House and Trancesetters is Tech-house. Tracks like The Saga, Paper Moon, Plasmids, The Search are some of their best known releases. At the end of the 90’s the label Touché was voted for best label of the year in germany. This happened without the help of any big german record labels promoting them. Just purely with the quality and strength of the music.

In the dictionary Touché means: Used to acknowledge a hit in fencing or a successful criticism or an effective point in argument. Well their releases "hit" me "successfully" in the right spot.
