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.

"Belgotronics", their acclaimed debut album, was released last spring in mainland Europe, and is due to come out in the UK and North America in early 2012. 

The album was performed and produced by Hoquets (aka Maxime Lê Hung, François Schulz and McCloud Zicmuse), and  mixed by Marc Meliá Sobrevias  (Lonely Drifter Karen), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and regular Deerhoof collaborator Etienne Foyer.

After extensively touring through the spring & summer, and taking part in some of the Congotronics vs Rockers shows (alongside Konono No.1, Deerhoof, Juana Molina et al), Hoquets took a well-deserved break and are now back in full force after their week-long invasion of Spain at the end of October.
