SVS Records was set up by Beni Brachtel and Daniel Hermann-Collini as an outlet for Brachtel’s Selbstversorger- sound collective. Since 2007, every late summer, SVS takes different artists out of their comfort zone and confronts them with a primal lifestyle far away from their familiar periphery. Musicians and music producers check in at a chalet in the alps for two weeks. Without a mobile network yet packed with a great deal of studio equipment, the seclusion of the venue does not only affect the social coexistence but also the artistic output of all participants. Everything focuses on the elementary: eating, sleeping, nature and the production of music that would not be the same if it wasn‘t for these circumstances.
