Elektrax Recordings was founded in the second year of the new millennium (2001) by acclaimed DJ/producer DJ Hi-Shock in Sydney, Australia.
The label’s first ever vinyl release, “Nagano Trax Vol.1?, is a classic techno stomper that evokes a reaction from people almost a decade later as much as it did when first placed on turntables around the world.
Elektrax Recordings was then diverted into the digital terrain and joined Beatport in 2005 with re-issue of dateless, still incredibly fresh productions from the late ’90s, along with the introduction of the latest material from international talent.
These days, Elektrax releases the cutting edge sounds of Deep, Hard-Edged, Dark, Minimalistic and Proper Techno, and our material is available via digital download and limited vinyl editions.
With releases, mixes and remixes from new and established producers such as DJ Warp, Steve Stoll, Gayle San, D.A.V.E. The Drummer, V1NZ, Ree.K, Roman Zawodny or E383, the label has built itself a renowned international identity, and has earned support from most top of the top techno DJs worldwide.
