Lemongrassmusic is an eclectic, independent music
label that produces high-class genre-bending music releases, widening the scope
of the Lounge genre by exploring Chillout, Ambient, NuJazz, TripHop, Electronic
World Music, Deep House, Soul and more.
When mastermind Roland Voss was teaming up with his
brother Daniel Voss to launch their own label in 2005, they both didn't expect
that it will grow to such an internationally well respected music brand as it
is today. Initially their central focus was on having an independent platform
for their own various projects and productions such as Lemongrass,
Weathertunes, Five Seasons and Jasmon.
Soon after while touring in Japan they met many inspiring artists with
fresh music, mostly unknown in Europe. So the idea of presenting them on a
worldwide release, set as the first label compilation called "Lemongrass
Garden Vol.01" took shape.
From there on things developed naturally &
rapidly. In 2012 they face the anniversary of their 100th release. Considered
as a true taste maker Lemongrassmusic has become a major player of the
international Lounge & Electronic Music scene by now. The label philosophy
is buoyed with optimism and loving care in respect to the creative expression
of their signed artists. This visionary pursuit seems to increase the quality
of their releases as a notable difference. The claim "artists feel at home
at Lemongrassmusic" is not a phrase, it is day to day reality of the
brothers’ work. It became like a song itself, like a sinewy melody across the
face of the whole thing.
Becoming a member of the Lemongrassmusic family is
oblique only to Roland & Daniel's personal taste and musical vision.
Artists like Karen Gibson Roc, Eskadet, Faro, T2'n, Glam Sam & his Combo,
Northbound, Gushi & Raffunk, Michiko, Mirage Of Deep and Keisuke Sakai are
highlights of a brilliant up to date label spectrum, which is responsible for
unforgettable moments on Lounge floors worldwide. For those who have just
started to discover the labels work, some fine & successful label
compilations such as "Lounge Du Soleil", "Future Jazz
Cafe", "Groove on, Earth!" and "Deep House Dreams" are
helpful tools, sticking out from the crowd of average Lounge boredom.
Music should carry positive vibrations and warmness
accompanying one's expression of creativity. This is what the Voss Brothers
care for, as well as for an ethic way of business and on a personal level too.
This visionary mix guarantees that the label's flame will burn for long - very
