Launched in 1999 by Charles Siegling a.k.a Technasia and Amil Khan, Sino Records has always worked on joint projects with artists from different cultures and nationalities. Sino Records has always released introspective electronic music of different styles as electronica, downtempo and techno. In most cases, the label’s releases have swung around dark and psychedelic sensitive approach.
In the mid 90’s Siegling and Khan chose to base Technasia and Sino Records in Hong Kong. Chinese language is the ultimate difficulty for Siegling but electronic music is the greatest language of all. Fans around the world from China to France know Technasia’s classic anthems including Force, Oxide and Genesis released by Sino Records. Charles Siegling is also an outspoken promoter of young talents and used Sino imprint as a launch pad for Joris Voorn, Renato Cohen, Steve Rachmad and young Catalan producer Dosem.
Managed by Aurélien Delaze since 2010, Sino Records released Parallel from Spanish producer Marc Dosem, better known simply as Dosem. Although Marc Dosem is now famous, Parallel was the bold debut album from a rising star. Two years later Minimalism Part 2 EP from Terrence Dixon with Ben Klock and Edwin Oosterwal received a lot of attention from Paris to Berlin via London. The gripping techno remix Minimalism A1 from Berghain poster-boy Ben Klock revisit the Sino’s past glory in connection with the famous Sinosphère by Steve Rachmad a.k.a Sterac.
With the latest Sino’s Elements EP by the young French producer Benales mixing the raw, dark and deep elements of techno, the now Paris-based imprint bets on the future.
