Chrom Recordings is an electronic music label with roots in Austria & Belgium, founded in 2017 in Ibiza by Mike Chrom (creator & owner of Planet Ibiza, I am Boho, Eivissa Beach Cafe,…) and DJ/Producer Pedro Mercado (known from his releases/remixes on Parquet, Kling Klong, Dear Deer, Particles, Proton, Bonzai, Manual, Natura Viva, Deeperfect, Frequenza, Beatfreak,…).
Both label founders have together more than 40 years of experience in the global electronic music scene and during the Ibiza summer of 2016 they came up with the idea to finally also start their own label according to their common musical philosophy which is ranging Deep-, Afro- & Progressive- House to Melodic House & Techno. So Chrom Recordings was born to build a quality platform & home base for like-minded passionate artists from all over the world who fit the Ibiza Spirit of the label, focused on the melodic sound which can be heard in party cities such as Amsterdam & Berlin. Both new promising talents ànd established known artists from with the same music taste are more than welcome to the label.
The name & logo of “Chrom” with the circle around the “Om” is inspired by several elements:
– “Chrome or Chromium is a chemical element with symbol Cr and atomic number 24. It is the first element in Group 6. It is a steely-grey, lustrous, hard and brittle metal which takes a high polish, resists tarnishing, and has a high melting point. The name of the element is derived from the Greek word χρῶμα, chrōma, meaning color, because many of the compounds are intensely colored.”
– “Om is a sacred sound and a spiritual icon in the Hindu religion. Om is part of the iconography found in ancient and medieval era manuscripts, temples, monasteries and spiritual retreats in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The symbol has a spiritual meaning in all Indian dharmas, but the meaning and connotations of Om vary between the diverse schools within and across the various traditions.”
– The circle refers to the meaning of the sun and the connection between as many elements.
In a a few years time Chrom has grown into a very credible label & brand with great artists, many followers & important support, hosting world wide label showcases, representing & connecting every colour of quality melodic electronic music.
