Opilec Music Profile
“Opilec” (1917) is a story by Josef Čapek, a writer and cubist painter, brother of Karel Čapek, the man who is supposed to have invented the term “robot”, with the original meaning of “servant”.
Opilec Music is a label project deeply built on Asimovian ways of thinking, taking on board how technology is not an enemy of the human species but a help and a real and useful extension of our mind. The robot is our friend and the music too.
Opilec Music is infused by old school Disco, Chicago House & Detroit Techno, the early 80’s Italo & Synth, Electro & Cosmic Disco and strongly by Krautrock & Electronic musical genres that in different but equally important way have conditioned the history of dance music. To date the label has released music from I-Robots, The Units, Federico Gandin, Derrick May, Infiniti (Juan Atkins & Orlando Voorn), Klein & MBO & Mushrooms Project to name a few.
The label has gained support from an array of Djs including Ben Sims, Laurent Garnier, Ray Mang, the Emperor Machine, Pete Herbert, Soul Clap, Groove Armada, SLAM, Stacey Pullen & the Horse Meat Disco crew, to name but a few and has received write ups from press including Mixmag, The Quietus, DJ Mag, De:Bug, Groove, Tsugi etc.
