Chain Reaction (record Label)

Chain Reaction was a German record label founded in 1995 by Basic Channel members Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus. The label's output consisted of the extended friends and family of the Basic Channel duo, which centered around the Hard Wax record store in Berlin.

The label's sound focused on a similar dub techno style as that of Basic Channel, rooted in atmospherics and minimalism, but some have found Chain Reaction's output to be more "avant experimental." Notable atists releasing their records on label include Monolake, Porter Ricks, Vainqueur and Fluxion.

The last record on the label was released in 2003.

Famous quotes containing the words reaction and/or chain:

    Sole and self-commanded works,
    Fears not undermining days,
    Grows by decays,
    And, by the famous might that lurks
    In reaction and recoil,
    Makes flames to freeze, and ice to boil.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It could not have come down to us so far,
    Through the interstices of things ajar
    On the long bead chain of repeated birth,
    To be a bird while we are men on earth,
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
