In one sentence: What do you do?
We are a Berlin-based house music label that releases vinyl records.
How did you come to do what you do and how would you describe the vision of your Label?
The idea came about 2-3 years ago. We have previous experience with running labels and have worked together for years, but wanted to create a new boutique label for house music and support the culture of vinyl records. The goal is to create a new, supportive environment for the scene.
What is the release you are most proud of?
We are proud of every release on our label, because we keep the quality standards as high as possible. Each record goes through a long process before it gets decided whether we release it or not.
Can you describe what a typical day at the office looks like for you?
We listen to a lot of music daily, stay in touch with our artists, organize events in Berlin and abroad, make sure the quality of our records is perfect and take care of all the logistical stuff. Besides all that we are also musicians and artists ourselves, so we need to find time to write music as well.
Who’s in your Team? Are you Music Producers or DJs?
The label is managed by Youcancallmeoliver and Luca Olivotto. Both are music producers and DJs as well. The artist team grows steadily and so far we have an international set of artists: Youcancallmeoliver, Luca Olivotto, Marc Brauner, David Silver, Habibi Grooves, Peter LC and more to come.
Which distribution channels do you use?
We work closely with deejay.de and bandcamp for our main distribution as well as decks.de for digital distribution. We also have a SoundCloud channel which lets you listen to our artists’ activity.
For producers out there sending in their demos via emails, what are some tips you would give them on professionally sending in their track to you?
You can send us your music directly via SoundCloud Link. Make sure the tracks are well mixed (they don’t need to be mastered) and present a unique artistic quality that matches the overall sound of our label. We listen to all demos closely and we care about details. Small things matter, hence the name „Small Great Things“ (;
