Not least of all thanks to this emphasis, it has taken Get Physical just four years to become one of the fastest risers and strongest brands of the international club scene. In 2005, influential British dance magazine DJ Mag voted Get Physical “Label of the Year” and, more recently, US mouthpiece for electronic music, XLR8R, devoted a front page story to the label.
Figures at beatport.com, the world’s largest digital music store for dance-related tracks, paint an unambiguous picture: Get Physical Music is their best-selling label across all categories.
Gradual changes, like allowing other styles to join the mix and opening the label up to become today’s musical home for many artists from around the globe, go hand in hand with rising expectations, changed structures and new concepts.
The label’s sound, too, continues to ramify and proliferate – it has become virtually impossible to squeeze our output into any style- or genre-related pigeonhole. Club compatibility is an absolute must, as is a penchant for the atmospheric and an emotional intensity which invariably hit the nerve of the boiling dancefloor.
