Rising Sun aka Steffen Laschinski, a producer and multiple record label curator from Berlin, discusses his musical heritage, from exploring electronic music after the Berlin wall fell to Basic Channel and sampling.
Kristofferson Kristofferson is a Berlin based record label operated by Rising Sun aka Steffen Laschinski. Kristofferson Kristofferson only released records from Rising Sun. The releases on Kristofferson Kristofferson are created in a special kind of way, following certain rules and rituals. First of all, the tracks ending up on a record need to be from the same period. Also, they have to work together in a particular way, they have to trigger a certain feeling in Steffen. Every track is left “as is“, with all the mistakes, imperfections in the arrangement and sound. It’s like an essay, a very special moment in time. I’m still surprised by the fact that people actually get that.
