NICOLAS DUVOISIN (Lausanne)
Fantastic Friends - La Ruche - AMG
Alongside working together with Niklas Ehrlin and Henrik Larsson on their main and wellknown project in the 90's, Headroom, Patrik Skoog began a solo project, darker and more tribal-technoinfluenced in comparison to the collaborations. After releasing the first output on German and American labels he then decided to set up Native Diffusion records for these type of tracks.This focused mainly on own productions, but also showcased remixes from the likes of Damon Wild, W.J Henze, Inigo Kennedy, Slobodan, Takaaki Itoh & Hardcell. As of 2003 and 2004 other talent started to appear on the label as well, respected producers and newcomers to the techno-scene alike. 2004 also saw Headroom´s debut release on the classic New York-label Synewave getting licensed to the "Exhibitionist" CD and DVD compilation, compiled and mixed by world renowned DJ Jeff Mills, and as the popularity of their style of techno increased over the last years, remix offers also dropped in frequently. Patrik did one for fellow Swede Adam Beyer and his now classic Drumcode imprint, which shortly thereafter lead to more releases on Drumcode, and the sub label Truesoul
