The Lo Fidelity project started out as a Rotterdam-based Lo-fi club night at the beginning of 2019. At their events, they have hosted both local talent such as Nachtbraker, Nala Brown and Sil, and international DJs such as Sweely, Bloomfeld, and Luca Durán.
Spurred on by the closure of clubs during the Covid-19 crisis, Lo Fidelity started working on their ambition to create a record label. This month, their hard work will finally pay off with the release of their first EP, Rave Invaders Vol.1. The EP features four tracks by Swiss producer and DJ Ground16 and a trippy remix by local talent Nachtbraker. Distributed by the London-based initiative Lobster Records, the vinyl can be found at stores such as Clone, Redeye, and ColdCuts // HotWax, as well as digitally on Bandcamp and streaming platforms.
The label promises to release everything under the Lo-fi spectrum, from Vaper-wave, to Techno, through Hip-hop.
We talked to founders Lorenzo Dienaar and Samuel Lima Silva, and to David Josseron (Ground16) about Rave Invaders Vol.1; their vision for the record label; and the carefully curated artwork and visuals by Peter Verloop from Almost Modern.
