IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS HOUSE.
AND BTECH

Founded by Jan Ekholm in 1988, BTECH was the first underground house label coming out of Scandinavia. With a no nonsense approach – “if it’s good it’s good” – BTECH released a wild mix of Chicago house, techno, deep house, hiphouse, acid house and even some jazzy downbeat tunes. The freedom and the fun attracted both International and local house producers, artists and DJs, and soon BTECH became a creative melting pot for people like StoneBridge and the SweMix team, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Steve “Silk” Hurley and several other names from the early Chicago scene.

BTECH was constantly present in hype and club charts around Europe and in the US, with projects such as Clubland, Sound Source, MDA, Morgan King, Georgie Red, The Creeps and the Going Back To Basics series.

In 1993, BTECH developed into Clubvision Recordings, a high profile house label at the time bringing out 90s classics such as Donna Giles “And I’m Telling You”, House Of Virginism’s “I’ll Be There For You” and Clubland’s “Hold On (Tighter To Love)” and “Love Strain”.

Now, more than 30 years after the first release, BTECH is back. Last year, we started to re-release the highlights of the catalogue, many of them digitally available for the first time ever, with a number of compilations. In addition to dusting off the oldskool DAT tapes (remember those!), we’re also putting out new remixes made by some of today’s hottest names. The first remix project, a 2019 update of Clubland’s classic “Let’s Get Busy” with mixes by Grant Nelson and Kevin McKay, climbed all the way to No 1 in Music Week’s Upfront Club Chart.

It’s time to put the jack back into the house!
