"There aren't a lot of dance music labels that do tender, understated emotion as well as Giegling, and there are even fewer who find so many interesting ways to express it." - RA
Co:Motion invites back one of the founders of one of today's most influential record labels for a night of unheard-of, groove-heavy house and techno.
Giegling have one of the best stories in dance music. It started from four parties at a small student club which closed shortly after - "It was a zone where you did whatever you wanted to. I was there one time from Thursday to Monday. To me, personally, a lot of magical things happened. And that's not about drugs. It's about the things music and a community can do to you. If you stay together for a long time, there are things that happen in the consciousness that you only experience that way."
Fast-forward to today, and they have become one of the hottest labels in dance music (RA's #1 label of the year in 2014 and again in 2016), doing it simply through incredible parties and releases, staying shy of press and social media to focus on their craft.
We were lucky to catch Dustin twice recently - at Equation festival in Vietnam and Rainbow Disco Club in Japan, and were equally blown away by two entirely different sets, one in a jungle in the early morning, and then in a meadow at sunset. Both times left us breathless - as much as Giegling embodies a tender side of music often lost in today's dance world, they bring infectious rhythms to club settings and know how to transport dancers to other dimensions.
