RA Label of the month: Version

Version began in 2006 when Orson brought Mala to Düsseldorf for his first gig in Germany. Since then, it’s been one of the country’s best sources for sub-heavy sounds. At their OHM parties, Orson, Hops and the party’s other resident, Skratch, make a semi-conscious effort to chart the entire spectrum of dub-influenced dance music, moving in a single night through dubstep, jungle, UKG, drum & bass and so on. The label, meanwhile, compresses these influences into system-tailored club tracks that are as understated as they are immense. If the parties find ways of stitching together different sounds, the records home in on the fundamentals that connect them.
