Henrik Schwarz launches new classical label with !K7

Producer and DJ Henrik Schwarz has partnered with !K7 to launch a new label, Between Buttons. Focusing on acoustic sounds and contemporary classical music, the label’s first release will be an EP from Schwarz himself, titled ‘Works Piano’.
“In these times of constant turbo mode, likes and thumbs-up, we need to go back to basics”, says Schwarz. “We want to move away from the idea that relentless hasty productivity is a must, and instead take time to create space, to let ideas mature and to focus the mind on subtler sounds”.
Listen to the first track from ‘Works Piano’ – ‘4011 Liter’ – here:
Schwarz’s EP will be released at the end of next month, and will be followed by another EP from the new label by Syrian artists Khaled Kurbeh & Raman Khalaf Ensemble, titled ‘Aphorisms’.
As previously reported, !K7 launched a new contemporary classical division – 7K! – late last year. Through that label, Schwarz will release a studio recording of his ‘Scripted Orchestra’ show, which he performed with Metropol Orkest at the opening of the Amsterdam Dance Event last year. He will also release new electronic music through !K7.
