Quality over quantity has been the guiding principle for this London Techno label over the past decade, being better than ever since its relaunch in 2009, when London-based DJ/producer James Ruskin relaunched the imprint after a short hiatus. Since then, Blueprint has been releasing work at a breakneck pace from names like O/V/R, Valmay and Mark Broom—never previously associated with Blueprint. “The original idea for the label was to create a vehicle for Richard [Polson] and myself,” Ruskin says. “What we were trying to achieve was very specific. We got sent a lot of demos—we got sent good demos—but they didn’t necessarily fit. Blueprint wasn’t about releasing music for the sake of releasing music. That’s why it remained focused on the core people that were there from the start.”
Over the last few years Sigha is a name that has become synonymous with forward thinking Techno and electronic music. His interest in immersive sound design and experimentation combined with a staunchly British take on the genre have helped him carve a unique path through a densely populated field. Sigha will perform at Blueprint’s showcase at Lisboa Electronica on May 13th.
