Since Ocean Trax’s inception back in 1996 it was obvious they’d become key players in the underground scene, the synergy between Italian tastemakers Gianni Bini and Paol Martini was too strong. Employing DIY energy into everything they worked on, they started a movement that’s here to last. Now, still as influential as ever, they celebrate an incredible 25 years of red-hot releases.
Ocean Trax Records Spotlight - 25 Year Anniversary
It all started with ‘Take Me Over’, a standout debut release produced, arranged & mixed by Gianni Bini, Paol Martini & Fulvio Perniola aka House Of Glass. Together, a force to be reckoned with, propelling Ocean Trax into the limelight and tearing through the dance music world like a tornado.
The most impressive quality attributed to Ocean Trax’s success isn’t just the incredible legacy they have behind them. It’s the consistency in which they’ve upheld throughout the 25 years they’ve been releasing music. Each release is carefully considered and well-chosen to work in harmony with the label’s mission. A mission to remain fiercely independent, always staying true to their sound.
We applaud their contribution and give praise where it’s deserved. There’s no doubt that without Ocean Trax, the underground would a very different place.
