- Label for Electronic Music & Art -

The independent record label Electro-Shock-Records started in Neubrandenburg (Germany) in the spring 2003. The idea for an own label was born after a PopKomm (Music Fair Trade/Cologne) aftershow-party in the Rhein/Main Area @ Germany in the year 2002 by Jens Krause & his producer friend Vernon B. (Producer/Remixer of Artists like Front 242, Talla 2XLC, Blind Vision, Trance Allstars and many more..and producer of many Music Research-Releases in the 90s.) 

The label-logo was designed by U.V.S. (member of the band Shock Of Reality), the idea comes from label-manager. 

The label-owner/manager Jens Krause was formerly known as music-journalist for many european magazines New Life, BodyStyler, Zillo, Orkus, Sonic Seducer and on the international level for Side-Line/Belgium and Release/Sweden. He compiled in the years before he started his own label-project many CD-Compilations for different labels: 

- Zoth Ommog: Body Rapture 8 
- Ausfahrt: Electrocity Vol.11, Electrocity Vol.12 
- and more 

Electro-Shock-Records first sign in the music-world was the CD-Compilation Stromschlag Volume 1 

The first signing was Dead Sexy Inc. and first band release the Breakme (produced by Paul Kendall). After this release more and more artists started approaching the label: Cue To Recall (Norway), Kash (2) (Germany), Blind Vision (Germany), Robert Marlow (United Kingdom)… 

In the beginnig of the year 2008 contacted the labelmanager an Synth-Pop-Legend in person, Mr. Robert Marlow with a request of unreleased or new material. This request from Electro-Shock-Records pushed Robert Marlow and his new musical partner Gary Durant to work hard on a new album. The working-title of the album was “Robosexual* and in the final-version was released with the name "Inside/Outside" (E-Shock-CD 007) under the bandname Marlow (2). 

The first live-show after many years of silence for Robert Marlow and Gary Durant was on the valentins-day 14.02.2009 @ Stockholm organized by the “UltraFoxx”-Event-Crew. The guys playing there in front of a amazing party-crowd, as support-act behind the turntables played the labelmanager Jens Krause (DJ Soulmanager) an x-tra DJ-Set "The Sound of FFM". 

The first germany live-show ever for Mr.Marlow and his new crew-member Gary Durant was arranged by the "Dark Noir"-Crew on the 26.09.2009 for the Birthday-Bash-Party in a club called “Zebra”, located in the hometown of the label Neubrandenburg. 

Today Electro-Shock-Records is representing some of the interestings international electro underground-acts and is a special place for Electro / EBM / Synth-Pop and Electro-Clash. 

One of the biggest success for the label was the nomitee on the SAMA-Award (Swedish Alternative Music Awards) 2006 in the categorie “Best Newcomer Album” with Cue To Recall`s Mainland-Album.
