de’fchild productions is an independent label and music production imprint currently located in San Francisco.
Origin: Conceived in Montréal in June 2004, our first releases appeared on vinyl in springtime 2005. We subsequently relocated from La Belle Province and have settled in San Francisco.
Label Philosophy: Our musical interests span time and geography, which frees us from the restraints of any one sound aesthetic, style or musical boundary, while our technical work in the studio (see below) has us constantly thinking about ways to cultivate genuinely new means of musical expression. This predilection to studio-borne-inspiration is particularly present in our affection for idioms rooted in dub, experimental electro-acoustics and techno. Quintessentially, we're interested in the pursuit of novel sonic art, while exploring the frontiers of more popular musical forms.
