Touché Records was founded in 1994 by Alex Dijksterhuis (Jamez) & Gaston Steenkist (Dobre / Chocolate Puma). 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 successful with it's transatlantic sound. A mixture of American House and European Techno. When the success came, DJs like Carl Craig, Booka Shade, Orlando Voorn and Slam Dj's released on the label as well. The label was most successful in the USA and was played by DJs 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.
