From the beginnings of Detroit techno and house to the latest electro, soul and hip-hop, Submerge is one of the world’s hubs for electronic music. Submerge was established in 1992 by Christa Weatherspoon Robinson and Michael Banks as an administrative hub for Detroit’s independent dance music labels. The company has served as a channel for many labels, who have come and gone and taken on new direction over the years. As Submerge’s casts of characters has changed and evolved, the spirit has remained strong. With support from many of Detroit’s most talented and dedicated producers, label managers, promoters, DJs, writers, booking agents, and vinyl technicians, Submerge has remained afloat beneath the surface. The current line up of Submerge labels includes, Black Nation, Electrofunk, Hipnotech, Hitechfunk, Ignitor, KMS, Los Hermanos, Metroplex, Motech, Red Planet, Renaissance, Submerge Recordings, Transmat/Fragile, Tunnel 7 and Underground Resistance.

The Clone announcement:
Creative Vibes has another welcome addition to the family in the form of one of the most influential and well respected techno and electro labels from the Netherlands. While the Clone imprint has released techno gems from artists such as Duplex, Drexciya, Cosmic Force, Underground Resistance and Bangkok Impact, their sub-label is also making it’s mark in the music world.

Also into the CV fold come labels distributed by Clone: Viewlexx, Murder Capital, 4Lux, Bunker and Nature. Stay tuned in 2004 for a swag of the freshest electronica, techno, disco and house releases, direct from Rotterdam!
