There is something alluring in the warm buzz of analogue electronics, and the crackle of vinyl purring itâ€™s buried hidden code. Lo-Fi-45 is here to get back to the source and strip electronic music back to itsâ€™ bare essentials. There is no script or hidden agenda here outside of a simple service: Delivering anything from quality Deep House to Tech House, Techno and anything left of centre in between to those who all appreciate good tunes.
With Kasey Taylor and Lister Cooray teaming up for this adventure, Lo-Fi-45 is lucky enough to draw upon a combined 30 years of industry experience with its highly established creators. Kasey already runs one of the underground sceneâ€™s longest running labels in Vapour Recordings, along with the more recent eVapour8, and he has performed his well-tuned sound all over the world and back, supported almost every DJ you could imagine and played at every major gig and festival of note in his hometown of Melbourne. Having been involved with locally and internationally respected brands like Balance Music, Fluidlife and Darkbeat, Listerâ€™s industry experience extends to all facets of the market including DJing, promoting and touring, leading to Lister becoming one of the local sceneâ€™s most hardworking servants.

Our idea is to bring them into the studio, help them finish their tracks and then release them on our label. We really want to be known as the label that, not only give producers their first opportunity, but also try to help install the self belief they may require for them gain confidence in finishing
