Crammed has released over 250 albums and 250 singles by artists from all over the world, ranging from Aksak Maboul to Bel Canto, Carl Craig, DJ Morpheus (& the Freezone series), Eddie Fowlkes, Flat Earth Society, The Gruesome Twosome, The Honeymoon Killers (let's skip some letters) ... to Snooze, Suba, Tek 9 & 4hero, Zap Mama, Hector Zazou and Zuco 103 ...

Crammed's sub-labels have included the Made To Measure composers' series, world music collection Cramworld, electronic music imprints SSR, Language & Selector, and Ziriguiboom, a collection devoted to new Brazilian music. Nowadays, Crammed would like to believe that borders between genres are no longer indispensable, so most releases tend to come out under the simple "Crammed" banner.

Crammed's current roster includes Konono N°1, Cibelle, Koçani Orkestar, Taraf de Haidouks, Bebel Gilberto, Balkan Beat Box, DJ Dolores, Tuxedomoon, Shantel, Kasai Allstars, Think Of One, Mahala Rai Banda, newcomers Lonely Drifter Karen & Allá, and more.


Shantel's irresistible party machine @ Bataclan, Paris, 21 May

Shantel's "Authentic" EP, Tour and Video

The irresistible party machine is back in full force!

After a mad year (with a highly successful album and dozens of delirious shows) and a short rest, the irresistible party machine known as Shantel is back in full force: the digital-only Authentic EP includes remixes by Yamaha Electrico and by the highly-rated Schlachthof Bronx, as well as two new versions recorded by Shantel in collaboration with Turkish artist Nil and Serbian underground sound system Dream Team.

The Authentic Tour will take Shantel and his band through over 40 cities between May and August, including appearances at major festivals such as Roskilde (DK), Couleur Café (B), Montreux Jazz (CH), Francofolies (F), and a headlining show at the Bataclan in Paris on May 21. Watch the Authentic Video to get an impression of what it's like to attend a Shantel show...
Absolutely inauthentic, my sound is egocentric,
this sounds to you eclectic, 'cause you stay on the ground!
