5YRS of DGTL Records is a perfect reflection of not just of the label itself but also its global event patron: headliners sitting equally alongside local talent and up-and-coming acts.. Holding a great variety of forward-thinking house and techno, the label stays true to the same formula of the festival shows. Over the past five years, DGTL Records has grown into its own as a fully-fledged musical arm of the overall DGTL musical experience, introducing new sounds and acts to an international audience.
For promising Dutch DJ/producers Coloray, Tjade, Nicky Elisabeth and Lucky Done Gone, this will be their first release on DGTL Records, while the likes of Deniro and JP Enfant are already familiar names to label fans, having previously released EPs on the label. All are linked to promising rising international talent such as Jimi Jules, Kino Todo and Terr and to DGTL ‘veterans’ such as Adriatique, Dax J, Roman Flugel and Frank Wiedemann & Trikk, who have been part of the DGTL family for years.
Once the digital EPs are fully released, ‘5YRS of DGTL Records’ will be available as a very special commemorative 4×12″ vinyl release. Presented in a tri-fold cover, the LP will feature artwork by Eric Smilde, who has incorporated the distinctive elements of DGTL festival at the NDSM Docklands into a 3D design. Known for its sustainable ambitions, DGTL continues along that path with this vinyl release, choosing to work with Deepgrooves, the world’s greenest vinyl pressing plant thanks to their innovative and leading working method. The vinyl release falls on the weekend of DGTL AMS 2022 at the NDSM Docklands and will be available there for the first time.

DGTL RecordsDGTL Records builds on the same musical theme as the festivals, a broad spectrum of everything that has to do with house and techno. The main goal of the label has always been to give artists an extra platform, in addition to line-ups and festivals. With this, DGTL tries to strengthen the relationship with both the artists and the audience. With a focus on working with (local) talent and artists who are discovered through running festivals worldwide, DGTL Records is always run with an international mindset. Given that Amsterdam is the home base, it is very important to also support the Dutch scene and local talent. In the past 5 years, more than half of the releases have been made by the Netherlands.
DGTL Amsterdam 2022The vinyl release comes together with DGTL Amsterdam 2022, which takes place during the Easter weekend at the NDSM Docklands in Amsterdam. Out of all the artists on the compilation, 10 will play at the festival, including all Dutch artists. There will also be a stage dedicated to DGTL Records on Sunday
